Led by well-known champions of photography—Cig is a photographer and educator; Bill is a collector, dealer, and writer—this new two-day hands-on workshop covers how to engage with photographs, problem solve, and, ultimately, get what you want. Student will share their imagery as part of a group discussion and work through a series of provocative exercises designed for photographers who want to clarify their approach to a life in photography: how they think and talk about their work, how they edit and present, and how they build a network. The goal of the class is for students to leave with a specific set of short and long term goals for their life in photography.
