Crafting Compelling Visual Stories with Ami Vitale in LA
November 20, 2020Return to Events
There is a true craft to creating and editing photographic projects, and then translating them into meaningful and powerful expressions. Strong stories must be clearly conceptualized, effectively captured and astutely edited.
In this hands-on workshop, designed to provide a broad overview of multimedia techniques, we move through the full course of crafting compelling visual stories. To illustrate the possibilities of photography as a source of inspiration and communicative power, Ami shares examples of her own personal projects. She then analyzes and critiques participant’s portfolios, and discusses the art of finding a storyline, gaining access to subjects, and finally, editing the work into a cohesive story. Ami will also discuss the business aspects of creating a career in photography. Our discussions cover topics such as writing proposals, understanding copyright, securing clean contracts and model releases, and the business of selling your work.
During the weekend, you document a short story and edit it into a cohesive whole. This workshop is about producing real reportage, getting honest feedback and, ultimately, getting your visual story out there and published.
The workshop will be help Nov. 20-22 at the Los Angeles Center of Photography. Learn more and register at lacphoto.org/events/crafting-compelling-visual-stories-with-ami-vitale-2020/
