In total, a complete fine art weekend that will leave you inspired and ready to take your work to the next level!

Brooke Shaden studied filmmaking and English in college and graduated with those two degrees as she discovered photography for the first time. Channeling a love for storytelling and a desire to create visually into a still camera, she began creating self-portraits that were both atmospheric and other-worldly. Self-portraiture blossomed into a career as a fine art photographer, and today she works as a visual storyteller creating surreal, whimsical and often dark works with a camera and Photoshop. Her images have been awarded with a number of fine art and conceptual awards as well as solo and group shows with gallery representation. As of March 2017 she became a Sony Artisan of Imagery.
