Time: Selected hours each day
Event: Editing the Visual Narrative
Instructors: Sarah Leen & Bill Marr
During five days over a two week period, Sarah Leen, award-winning Founder / Editor of The Visual Thinking Collective and former Director of Photography for National Geographic magazine, and Bill Marr, former creative director at National Geographic and former director of photography at The Nature Conservancy, will work with you and your photographic projects to introduce you to a set of skills essential for every photographer: the art of visual storytelling and photo editing.
This class is for the photographer with an ongoing, or completed, visual project who wishes to move their work from a random collection of images to a compelling and dynamic visual narrative. In this workshop we will examine the elements of storytelling to offer you a clear, step-by-step approach to refining your storytelling skills, organizing your images, and editing your photographs into an exhibit, book, or publishable story.
In a fun, collaborative and inspirational environment you will see presentations by the instructors, do editing exercises and concentrate on organizing and editing your own projects learning from each other’s solutions and successes. This week is not about creating new images but about taking your storytelling projects to the next level.
