Details

Your point of view is what defines you as a photographer. So how do you find your voice?

This workshop will see Ian Teh presenting his approach to documentary projects and his working methods to students. He will share personal insight into his creative process, a framework that he uses to develop his projects. Ian will explore the documentary language as a way of story telling, including methods by other practitioners, giving students a broad scope for their own photographic practice. This 3 day programme, which includes practical work, will cover all areas of the creative process from the development of a story idea, to its production. It will focus on the creative considerations involved in shooting, sequencing and explore the principles behind making a master print or final image. All these stages of the photographic practice are important and necessary steps for creating a coherent body of work. A key aim of the workshop will be to develop students’ critical creative facility as well as an understanding of professional production requirements for their own personal photographic journey.

Class capacity: 8 pax

Closing date for registration: 5 Oct 2017
