Great images are not produced by accident; they require thoughtfulness, openness, passion, awareness, and even a sense of humor. For many photographers, the goal is simple. We want to continue to explore, strive to improve, and learn how to go beyond the obvious. This workshop explores numerous ways of achieving this goal, inspiring us to move “beyond the snapshot” regardless of the subjects we choose to photograph.
Daniel begins by discussing a wide range of images, from portraits to documentary, and inviting participants to think about and articulate their goals and direction. Daily assignments challenge us to discover new ways of seeing and create in-depth bodies of work. Exercises include finding a picture within a picture, returning to the same location over a period of time, the five-minute photo-essay, and photographing strangers. Our week includes group critiques of images made both during and before the workshop, and individual meetings for each participant with Daniel. The primary intention of this workshop is to help participants improve on and enjoy one of life’s great pleasures: exploring the world with a camera.
