In this special workshop, photographer, documentarian, and co-founder of VII photo agency Ron Haviv offers insights and practical tools to develop a distinct voice and visual style. Over the course of the workshop, Haviv will discuss how personal sensitivity and a visual style can be developed by trusting instincts over formulas. This workshop will help participants gain a clearer understanding of what it takes to stay sane and focused, while defining your own way forward in the world of photography.
This is a BYOC (bring-your-own-camera) workshop that will meet at Saint Ann’s Warehouse for an introduction and slideshow presentation before heading out to complete a special shooting assignment in and around Photoville. The workshop also includes an editing session and casual group critique, where students can share work and ideas, and get feedback from instructors and workshop peers.
