Storytelling Photography Workshop – Registration begins tomorrow

the art of telling stories sept 2016

Next month marks the 3rd anniversary of The Stories We Tell and a lot has happened over the last three years.  Lifestyle, Documentary, and Photojournalism are terms seen everywhere.  This workshop still begins with the fundamental ideas and challenges of shooting indoors before illustrating storytelling techniques for you to tell the story of your family.  Whether you want to fill a shoebox or album, this workshop teaches the skills to document the stories in your own household.  We take a lot of time thinking about what you bring to the table (equipment, subjects, editing), pull out your goals as a storyteller, and then help you get there.  We all have a unique and creative storytelling voice, let’s help you find yours.


Click here to register for The Art of Telling Stories.  Link active at noon ET on Friday, July 22nd.
