2010 Karsh Award winner Tony Fouhse teaches master class

STORYTELLING: NARRATIVE / SEQUENCE / BOOKMAKING


MAY 25 - JULY 27, 2014
MONDAYS 9 AM TO NOON 
10 SESSIONS: 30 HOURS
LOCATION: SPAO
TONY FOUHSE
LEVEL: MASTER | $525.00

Every picture tells a story, but when photographs are carefully sequenced and presented in book form, their narrative potential explodes.

This intensive 10-week master class will teach you how to shoot and present projects in ways that take advantage of photography’s unique capacity for storytelling. Students will start the class with nothing but an idea and finish with a book of their photographs. That book, rather than being merely a random collection of photographs, will tell a story, and that story can be anything, from the literal to the emotional.

This is a practical workshop. Students will learn how to shoot, edit and sequence photographs in ways that will expand their approach to, and understanding of, photography. Each participant will come with an idea of what they want to photograph and Tony will give suggestions on ways to shoot the project to allow for maximum narrative potential. Every week we will look at the progress of each story. Students will learn how to add complexity and nuance to their shooting. The importance of discovery and following tangential threads will be stressed.
