1 DAY photo IMMERSION

LOCATION: BEND, OREGON

Dates offered: see below

COST: $450/PERSON

LIMITED TO 3 PEOPLE PER SESSION

It's not about your camera, it's about your love of photography. This experience is about honing your skills as a photographer, helping you visualize what you want in a photograph and understanding your subject and its relation to your vision.  Enabling nature to calm your busy mind allows you to focus on what's in front of you. The concepts you learn in this class can be used with any subject you photograph, be it the landscape, your kids, your dinner or your vacation.

This is an intensive photography and artistic immersion for the individual that desires a deeper dive into their photography.  We'll be immersed in photography, art, nature, observation and artistic creation. Over the course of the day we'll get into:

  • Understanding light, composition and tonalities and how to use them to inform your work
  • Subject isolation
  • Color blocking and complementary colors
  • Color and black and white creative theory
  • The use of quiet observation and slowing down
  • Approaching gear and equipment from a creative place
  • Relating what you feel with what you see into a photograph
  • Listening to your artistic voice and seeing the power of art
  • And much more...
