"Taking the Next Step in Fine Art Photography"
September 7-9, 2018
 

It is critical to the growth of a fine art photographer to understand what comes next after creating an image and that today, photographers make work in projects–a series of images that tell a story or explore a subject in depth. This workshop provides an insight into the world of photography and helps photographers package themselves and their work in a professional manner. Throughout the workshop portfolios will be shaped and edited. Participants will learn how to build and write a résumé, how to construct a bio, and how to title and write personal statements about their work. Learn how to submit to publications, photography competitions, and prepare work for exhibition. Information about grants, portfolio reviews and exhibition proposals are also covered.
