Spend three days in Maine with Kerry Payne Stailey and learn how to take your photo project from a work-in-progress to an edited, sequenced multimedia piece.

This workshop is limited to 6 participants to ensure plenty of one-on-one time for each student. Ideally suited to photographers who have been wanting to experiment with multimedia, but are unsure how, or feel they lack the technical expertise to try.

This three day lab in the heart of winter in a cozy lakeside barn will leave you confident in your ability to bing your existing or future photo projects to life and how to tap into viewer emotions through the mastery of pace, text, music and images.

You can use your own body of work, or we can use example photo essays during the daily classes.

The class will explore: 

  • editing and sequencing for multimedia  

  • timing, pacing, and the inclusion of text

  • using music to reinforce, not detract

  • working with custom audio tracks

  • publishing to Vimeo and social media

TUITION: $495

LIMITED TO: 6 PARTICIPANTS

DATE: January 18, 2020 to January 20, 2020 (inclusive)

LOCATION: The Barn at Blenheim Park, Midcoast Maine. Blenheim Park is home to Kerry and her husband Justin, set on 16 landscaped, lakefront acres. It’s located about 1 hour north of Portland, Maine and about 7 miles from the charming town of Damariscotta.

ACCOMMODATION is not included, but a range of affordable nearby options will be provided upon registration.

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.  

In this hands-on photography workshop, you’ll learn how to tell your most personal stories and harness the power of them to help others. 

The class will explore: 

  • planning and executing long and short term projects 

  • 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. 

Part photography, part storytelling and part exploratory workshop, this program offers you the freedom to push through your own boundaries and discover new possibilities in self discovery and personal expression, as well as camaraderie and industry relationships that will last a lifetime. 

“Many years ago I met Kerry Payne whose photography dealt with loss and bereavement and extraordinary pain. The work she produced and continues to produce addresses very intimate issues in the most tender and beautiful way without being saccharine. Everyone on earth should take her workshop. If you have suffered loss due to suicide or heartache due to lost dreams, come and be wrapped in hope and encouragement in a beautiful place by this extraordinary photographer. “ — Maggie Steber

In addition to an inspiring week with likeminded artists, our lakeside setting will do wonders for your spirit too.  We’ll sprinkle in yoga by the lake, meditation in the woods and other activities to help make this not only a wonderful time to advance your artistic vision, but a great opportunity for you to ‘reset’ from the daily grind, while building lifelong connections with other artists who share your interest in creating this type of work.
