So – to re-explain;
Four review / planning classes, lots of interaction between students, and a focus on building a shot list.
Four weeks to shoot.
Regroup after the 4 week shoot month and begin the last 4 classes. This means the class will actually be 12 weeks long, with a focused four week gap to make images.
Class Meets Saturday Morning, 7AM Pacific.
Class begins January 27, 2018
Enrollment must be completed by January 20, 2018, in order to have time to review your current portfolio.
I will be asking for a URL for either a specific part of your portfolio or a Dropbox of images to review as soon as you enroll.
BTW: There will only be 12 ‘students’ max. And we will be looking at portfolios BEFORE admitting students. Some of you are beyond this mid-level portfolio work and some photographers may not be ready for the intensity.
