Concept Photography

Class Description

Conceptual Photography:  How to make great photos- not just “take” them.

Engaging, powerful photographs are not about good cameras and a lot of technical know-how.  They come to life through ideas, perspective, voice, and memory.  In this class, we will use any camera you have on hand to explore the conceptual side of photography.

We’ll be looking at the works of contemporary photographers as discussion points and prompts and students will venture out to make their own images.  Some of the artists we will look at include storytelling masters, Latoya Ruby Frazier and Gregory Crewdson, visionary Uta Barth, indigenous culture symbolist Luis Gonzales Palma, and those who defy categorization like Juanan Requena and the Starn Twins. 

As our handheld technologies allow us to always have a camera on hand, everyone is now a photographer. Take the next step in your personal photography hobby and learn how to make great photos, not just “take” them.
