In an increasingly visually saturated society how can photographers create and disseminate their documentary projects in a thoughtful and effective way? How can we sustain meaningful work creatively and financially over a long period of time?
Join photographer Matt Eich for a weekend workshop focused on fresh approaches to the development of long-term documentary projects. Through a combination of lecture, discussion, critique and making pictures, students will hone new ideas for the creation and dissemination of their work. We will review student images, discuss motivations and approaches, and make time for creative exploration. Individual portfolio reviews and conversations with Matt are also included with the workshop. Contemporary documentary photographers who have changed our understanding of human and environmental conflicts will be examined for insight. Additionally, we will explore the business aspects of documentary work, such as acquiring and maintaining relationships with clients.
Students will photograph assignments consistent with the morning lectures, critiques and discussions. The days are long and students are strongly encouraged to fully participate in all workshop activities, encouraging a lasting support network among students long after the workshop has ended.
NOTE: This is classified as a “Master Photographer” workshop. We advise you to read the “Master Photographer Refund Policy” HERE before enrolling.
