Is It For Me?
This course will challenge participants to develop new ways of seeing adventure sports and create art as well as documentary images.
Understanding the connection between the emotional response to a scene and how to convey that in ways that excites and inspires viewers will be covered.
Image making and art is a very individual thing and developing a style is as much a part of working in the adventure photography industry as it is having good working relationships with clients and social media.
