Course Description

Realizing there is no set formula for a successful documentary project is the first step toward starting one. In this workshop, we discuss the conceptual planning, dedication, and sacrifice that go into a personal documentary photo project. We look at the many ways one can approach such a project, both long term and short, and discuss ways of coming up with story ideas, researching and executing them, and getting them published. During weekly online sessions and critiques, examples of projects by contemporary photographers are reviewed as well as the origins of the traditional photo essay. The goal is to start or develop an existing project and take it to the next level of execution.

prerequisite: Photo II or portfolio review
