Overcome issues and challenges when working with humanistic stories to produce a visually stunning and evocative photo essay.

Dominic ChavezThis workshop explores the photo essay as a voice for telling stories of people and their personal conditions. Students work on a documentary project throughout the week, applying Dominic's instruction to the issues and challenges photographers encounter when working with humanistic stories.

Practical points discussed include gaining access to a story, learning how to operate in sensitive situations, editing in mid-story, and completing an evocative photo essay. More importantly, the course is an exploration of the photographer's true interest in photography and connection with storytelling using the camera as a medium.

Students are encouraged to have their own transportation and to research story ideas before arriving in Maine. Also, Students are required to work digitally and a laptop is required for image processing and editing.
