VISUAL STORYTELLING AS A TOOL TO MOVE FROM HURTING, TO HEALING, TO HELPING.
IN THIS HANDS-ON WORKSOP, STUDENTS WILL LEARN HOW TO TELL THEIR MOST AUTHENTIC STORIES AND UTILIZE THE POWER OF THOSE STORIES TO HELP OTHERS.
Join photographer Kerry Payne Stailey in Maine for a 5.5 day workshop on developing projects, photographing intimacy and vulnerability, and personal storytelling using creativity as a tool of connection and authorship.

The class will explore:

photographing intimacy, vulnerability, and developing trust
metaphor and allegory - representing abstract ideas or events in narrative, dramatic, and visual form
sharing difficult subject matter with a wide audience
establishing critical relationships
creating universal points of connection
collaboration with other makers, creators, tools and platforms
marketing and presenting the work in innovative ways
Intended for amateur and professional photographers who would like to begin a personal project, are looking for new ways to present your most private stories, as well as those seeking a push or guidance for ongoing projects. It is suited to those wanting to tell your story directly, as well as photographers who wish to tell your story through their subjects.
Our daily routine will see the group viewing the work of the world’s most respected personal storytellers, group critique of your daily take, individual mentoring and benefiting from the collective insight of your peers.
Students will be given daily assignments and must come with equipment to photograph and edit.
