I love to teach workshops in beautiful locations, and none are finer than the coast of Maine. This summer I return for my seventh year to Maine Media Workshops. I’ll teach a workshop called “Imagination Vision and Voice”. Last year this workshop was very well received, and I was fortunate to have a great group of students at all levels or experience. We have a helluva lot of fun too!
Here’s a catalog brief:
“This workshop is for individuals longing to experience fresh creative growth through adventure, creative coaching and experimentation.
Participants learn new skills for photographing varied subjects and the best digital post techniques to craft the feel of each image. Our week-long interactive workshop offers the benefits of shooting on location, individual instruction and shared experiences. This workshop builds on each students’ existing skills and is perfect for photo-enthusiasts, instructors, students and media artists at all levels.
Another benefit of this locations is sharing meals with other students studying film, direction, printing, book design and other art forms. It’s truly a campus full of creativity!
Here are the details for this workshop.

Here are a few random shots I made during last summer’s class:
“If you can pay attention to what you feel when you shoot, your photographs will covey your unique vision. Interpretive photography is about how you view you subject, not the subject itself.”
“By learning and choosing options for digital finishing, you add more personality to each photograph. You can also experiment with toning and effects to add emotion to otherwise static images.”
