Give yourself a day—one day full of photographic sessions, from 9am to 4pm—to honor your creative self. Bring back the joy and wonder of being in nature, and holding a camera in your hand. Learn how to make pictures that soar past postcards, and capture what you are feeling, what you are seeing, and what you are thinking. Eddie will make you laugh when he shows you his first show, and you will “get it” when he clearly shows what he didn’t understand in his early years. At the time, working at a premiere photo lab, looking at the negatives of world class photographers, he kept asking, “How Come Mine Don’t Look Like That?” Digging back into his mistakes—his “good ones” at the time—he will lay out simple ideas to understand light, avoid chaos, create beautiful backgrounds, lead the eye with thoughtful compositions, and understand that if there is magic, work It, hang out, and slow down. His sessions will honor the classic landscape, giving you ideas to make it fresh and your own, and he will whole-heartedly dive into the interpretive landscape, celebrating the mindset of breaking out of your box, and making new photographs. Our day will swim in the creative, but honor the thoughtful.
Get ready for a day to set you free, to shake you out of ruts, and charge you up to make new photographs, right now.
Saturday, June 8 – 9:00am to 4:30pm
