    July 21st | 1 Session

    For the photographer, the creative process is anything that contributes to the goal of photography which is making photographs. Whether you like to go "cruising for snaps" and rely on serendipity or have a well-prepared project incubated in your heart and mind; when it's all said and done the common denominator we strive for is "direction." We will explore best practices in cultivating ideas, personal intentions, and practical strategies while we also examine aesthetic and mechanical issues as we continue to make pictures. Bring your camera and examples of your favorite photographs.
