Evolve as a professional photographer without sacrificing your personal vision.

There are no available registration dates at this time.

In this unique workshop, Stephen Wilkes- world renowned for his fine art, large format, large scale and commercial photography- will share what he’s learned about moving from commercial and editorial work to  to fine artist, all while shooting from the heart, and how his unique vision has propelled him into the ranks of today’s most successful photographers.

He will talk about how his subtextual use of narrative helps him to “find his picture.” He will share how his personal work has led to many commercial and editorial assignments that have not required him to forfeit his own creative vision.  

This workshop will explore the ideas and practice of making images from the heart while bringing a fresh and unique perspective to your client.

This is a shooting class and will include group outings with models and demonstrations on how to get the very best from your subjects as well as independent pursuit of images for critique and review in a class setting.
