Zen and the Art of Photography

Assignment/response workshop
with Douglas Beasley
April 21-23, 2017

Revitalize your photography while exploring your relationship to your subject, your camera and yourself. Through photo exercises, assignments and daily field trips participants will learn to deepen their visual awareness and self expression while clarifying their approach, making their image making both more personal and more meaningful.

This workshop provides a unique opportunity to rethink our expectations of what it means to ‘see’. We will work on cultivating simplicity and making more powerful photographs, supporting the notion that a photograph is not ‘taken’ but made. We become better photographers by becoming more in touch with our inner selves and then use that awareness to deepen our connection with our subject, whether it’s a person, place, or thing.

This is a challenging invitation to redefine not only what is personally suitable subject matter but your whole approach to photography. Inspiration will be sparked by a balance or conversation, meditation, readings, poetry, or whatever means necessary. Bring your camera and plenty of film or extra memory cards because most of the day you will be working on photographic exercises and assignments to facilitate both internal and external experience and growth.

This is the perfect workshop if you are looking to take your photography to a deeper more personal level or if you want to try an abbreviated version of Doug’s popular week long seminar on “Zen and the Art of Photography’.
