Class participants are saying:
"Great inspiration and offerings to stretch my thinking when considering a photograph. Made the THINK! And finally a photography project to implement those thoughts."
"Kevin presented a rousing, creative program that really enabled me to visualize a host of new directions for me move that will give me more joy in my photography. He helped me 'take my blinders off.' Now it's apparent that there is a universe of new ways to help make my photos more meaningful TO ME!"
"I felt the thoughtful, caring attitude that was projected not only by the teacher but students was the strong point. I very much liked the huge number of thought provoking suggestions and the videos were delightful but more than that they got the points across."
"I like the stimulation to get out of my photographic rut(s). Showing me innumerable examples of different photographic approaches was very helpful. But mostly, I liked your non-critical, non-directive encouragement for me to find more satisfying ways to enjoy photography."
"I have been on a number of workshops with Kevin, which were all amazing, but this was exceptionally different."
"a chance to consider new ideas and approaches, a chance to try new things"
"I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for new sparks or wanting to push yourself in new ways creatively and technically."
"really helped me to look at my photography in a more emotional way rather than being so concerned about technical aspects"
"I loved the projects and homework we were given to apply the information after leaving the workshop"
"It was a fantastic experience."
"Kevin's creative ideas for sparking photographic enthusiasm and the opportunity to think about project ideas, and go out and photograph with that new philosophy, made holding a camera in my hand new and exciting again."
"I have taken photography classes elsewhere, but Kevin's classes rise above all the rest. "
This workshop is for anyone and everyone! We can all benefit from exploring more ways to practice creativity in creating art and photography!
Photography is MORE than camera settings, f/stops, and shutter speeds!
Photography is ART. Photography is an expression of LIFE!
"A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense, and is, thereby, a true expression of what one feels about life in its entirety."
- Ansel Adams
You know how to use your camera, but the real challenge is taking the next step beyond camera "settings" to discover the art you yearn to create. The answer lies in a mixture of technical skills, artistic skills, 'seeing' the world in new and different ways, applying a mix of photographic techniques with computer digital imagery techniques.
