This workshop is for aspiring and professional photographers that are looking to advance their photographic skills to a level only an iconic photographer like Douglas Kirkland can elicit. Drawing together his career of expertise and experiences in this weeklong workshop, Kirkland gives students exposure into the mind of one of the photo industry's most influential artists.
Through lectures, slideshows and live studio demonstrations, students get a close look at what it takes to work in high profile environments such as movie sets, fashion magazines, and celebrity portraits. Douglas encourages students to ask questions and promotes open interaction through discussions about the inspirations and feelings that drive artistic work. The week begins with an in depth review of each student’s work followed by discussions and daily critiques of the progress throughout the workshop. Assignments and the opportunity to be involved in a live photo shoot in the historic Union Hall Studio will round out the week as students take their newfound knowledge with them after an amazing experience with Douglas.
Students are encouraged to bring a portfolio of their recent work, camera, and a laptop with editing software.
