Presentation is vital to a photographer. This includes editing, sequencing, writing a personal reflection, design layout and final presentation. These are essentials to the success of your project—whether it is a photo essay, portfolio, multimedia, book or exhibition. In addition, it is becoming crucial for photographers to learn how to create an online presence.
This 3-day intensive workshop aims to pair two photographers with a guest editor through one-on-one and group sessions focused on the editing, sequencing, and/or layout of a project. The guest editor will share his or her knowledge and experience to consult the photographer with the goal of furthering their personal project. Additionally, photographers will meet with Graham Letorney, FotoVisura’s web-producer, for a consultation on how to further their online presence.
