Define a signature photographic style that makes your photographs immediately recognizable by perfecting the art of composition, light and color. In this fun and immersive workshop, we create unique photographs that are infused with powerful beauty and emotion. Through presentations, daily photographic excursions and in-depth reviews of images, students craft an individual style resulting in photographs with a distinct look. Whether you’re interested in landscapes, portraits, photojournalism, travel or still lives, this workshop takes your photographs to the next level by establishing your individual style.

Media & Techniques:

Students use DSLR or mirrorless cameras or iPhones and Adobe Lightroom. The focus is primarily on taking new photographs and then selecting and editing the best images in Lightroom. Students print a final selection of their work from the week.


We learn from presentations highlighting masters of color photography, daily field trips to photograph, and individual and group discussions. Each student works on an individual project, either an ongoing body of work or discovering new pathways.
