2017 TEACHING SCHEDULE...
SATURDAY, JULY 15, 10 AM - 4 PM at EAST COAST PHOTO WORKSHOPS: CREATING VISUAL MEDITATIONS
There is an undeniable narrative speaking back to us in certain images we make. A continued piercing of the heart. Something more to be said. What happens when we become a bit more intentional about listening to their notes? The Poet Jane Hirshfield suggests that, “A regular returning in one dimension can bring unexpected turns in another.” In this image driven workshop we’ll explore that concept, making allies of those images which have further to say and using their threads as gateways to written expression. Poetry, free verse, short story… the field is wide open.
Exploring aspects of Susan’s signature five-pillared approach, you will discover the essential elements for honing in on the voice simmering in your photographs. The workshop will begin with an opportunity to clear personal slates and reconnect with your deepest creative intentions. From that place of presence we will begin to mine for the bigger pictures tucked in images. The workshop will also include poetry readings and extensive conversations on marketing and the role of social media in identifying and reaching your audience. You will leave with clarity and confidence, empowered to listen and share your newfound voice.
AUGUST 26 - SEPTEMBER 2: DEVELOPING A PHOTOGRAPHIC PROJECT - With Joyce Tenneson
Spend a week with internationally renowned photographer Joyce Tenneson, as your mentor. Our Tenth year anniversary workshop is all about developing ideas, projects, and the path to creating a successful cohesive body of work that could become a book or exhibition, or both. Joyce has developed countless projects over her 40 year career, including the creation of 16 successful books, and in this workshop she shares her secrets.
Through image lectures, editing sessions, group brainstorming of marketing ideas, and one-on-one critiques, Joyce will help you develop your personal project plans. In addition, to enhance the creative process, each day participants will spend time with Joyce and writer Susan Currie, a certified yoga instructor, exploring your inner selves through group meditation, guided imagery, and journal writing.
The goal on this workshop is to develop a chohesive body of work either from work you already have done, or new work you will shoot during the workshop. Joyce will identify and discuss the important steps in successfully developing such a project, and help you make a plan that will secure its succsess.
Each day will begin with yoga or group walks through the beautiful coastal environment of mid-coast Maine.
