Photography & New Media

Photography has always been a vital part of Anderson Ranch, one in which students explore visual storytelling through a variety of contexts and concepts. The program has uniquely evolved to focus on both traditional photography and new media— making it one of the only workshop settings of its kind. Three floors of the Fischer Photography Center house state-of-the-art equipment, including three photography studios, two Mac labs, a traditional darkroom, and a lighting studio with strobe and continuous lighting for photography and video.

All Photography workshops are rooted in the same idea—powerful art requires rigorous inquiry of techniques and ideas. We focus on technical skills, content and critical dialog. Students have access to color-managed media labs equipped with 24-inch iMacs, flatbed and film scanners, Epson printers, and cutting-edge software including Adobe Creative Cloud. When appropriate, students utilize strobe and tungsten lighting equipment, seamless backdrops, green screen, audio and video recording equipment and Epson large-format printers.

The Ranch Photography and New Media team creates an inspiring environment, allowing artists of all levels to explore lens-based media and the journey of artistic discovery in the unparalleled setting of the Colorado Rockies.

Photography of Place: Connecting the Inner and Outer

Andrew Moore

Tuition $1,195
Code P0306-24

How does one translate one’s experience of “a sense of place” into a compelling image? And once you have made the image, how do you bring that photograph to life as a print? This two-part workshop covers both shooting on location and studio time for digital printing and critique sessions. In the field, students work directly with the instructor, to help them reimagine their approaches to defining places both technically and aesthetically. Back in the studio, we’ll work on print making skills, and share those results with the class in engaging discussions.

Generative Collage: Exploring your Creative Practice with Code

Chelly Jin

Tuition $1,195
Code P0408-24

This class introduces basic to intermediate creative coding concepts to add or amplify experimental programming in your existing art practice. Throughout this course, we reflect on your current practice through writing prompts and photography exercises, developing a narrative or personal project. Each day, we explore various modes of generative and interactive artmaking: generative digital drawing, generative sound, interactive performance with machine learning, and combining these together to make "digital collages," all while meditating on and folding in your interests. In this methodology, creative coding acts as a mediator between participants, the artist and the technology - together, composing novel experience.
