Visual Storytelling through Digital Photography Workshop at Anderson Ranch
06 / 01 / 2018Return to Blog
Challenge the way you view the world around you by examining your community and your life through the art of visual storytelling. In this workshop, held Aug. 27-Aug. 31, 2018 we examine the art of cohesive storytelling and narrative, and work together to create a storyline and rich understanding of place and culture. With this overarching goal in mind, the class discussions include the technical aspects of strong photography, editing images to create powerful narratives, and how to plan, research and find unique perspectives to telling stories.
This workshop takes place at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass Village, Colorado.
Ami Vitale will be teaching this class. Ami Vitale’s journey as a photographer, writer and filmmaker has taken her to over 90 countries. She is an ambassador for Nikon, a contract photographer with National Geographic magazine, and has garnered prestigious awards including multiple prizes from World Press Photos, the International Photographer of the Year prize, the Daniel Pearl Award for Outstanding Reporting, and was named Magazine Photographer of the Year by the National Press Photographer’s Association, among others.
