IN THIS HANDS-ON SHOOTING 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 for a 5 day workshop on developing personal projects that have creativity as a tool of connection and authorship at their core. 

The class will explore: 

  • planning and executing long and short term projects 

  • photographing intimacy, vulnerability, and developing trust

  • 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, looking for new ways to present their most private stories, as well as those seeking a push or guidance for their ongoing projects.  It is suited to those wanting to tell their story directly, as well as photographers who wish to tell their 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 shoot and edit. 

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