NOTE: This Course will be Held in an Online Format using the Zoom Platform.

Shouldn’t creativity–not fear–be the deciding factor when you’re considering whether to photograph someone? Whether or not you’re aware of it, fear of photographing strangers dictates the pictures we make, inhibits the success of projects and even alters our career trajectories. This intensive, yet fun, online workshop tackles these anxieties head on by motivating and empowering you to remove these invisible obstacles. In an updated remote format, you will address the relative discomfort around this type of portraiture by photographing in your own location at a safe distance all while building your confidence at the same time. Through daily online class meetings with all participants, as well as one-on-one, this class will not only help you build confidence photographing strangers, but also to discover and cultivate your unique photographic practice. 


Workshop runs Monday through Friday. Using zoom video conferencing, all participants will meet daily for lectures and online critiques every morning, Monday through Thursday at 10AM EDT for approximately 2 hours. and again 2 hours in the evening. On Friday, the class will meet in the afternoon for a longer final crit, approximately 3-4 hours with a break.    Miller will give assignments that participants will complete and upload to a common folder to share with the class. One on one sessions will be scheduled throughout to address specific needs.
