Writing for Photographers with Santa Fe Photographic Workshops / Starts October 6, 2012
All photographers can benefit from the ability to write about themselves and their work. This workshop is for photographers who want to express themselves through the written word, be it for use on web sites, in print publications, or to pitch their work for exhibition. It’s also the perfect workshop for those who simply want to explore ways to articulate their photographic aspirations and accomplishments.
During this workshop with Leah Bendavid-Val and Sam Abell , we look at books and web sites and take field trips to the Photo-Eye bookstore and galleries in Santa Fe. In the classroom we look at successful (and unsuccessful) relationships between photographs and texts and show how carefully chosen words can bring insight and public awareness to your work. There is more than one way to write beautifully—we involve ourselves with various options for writing about your own images. Plan to bring approximately 50 photographs for discussion. In one-on-one conversations with Leah and Sam we reduce the number to approximately ten. We discuss your personal writing goals and we work with you as you apply them to your selected photographs.
By the end of the workshop, you have a simple, to-the-point biography, along with concrete descriptions of photographs and projects. In addition to being practical, this workshop will be lighthearted and fun (not ponderous and intimidating!).
