Our 3 class course is designed to be taught through the overarching lens of how to share a narrative through photography while empowering students with the important reminder that their stories matter and their perspectives are unique and powerful.

Through our custom interactive lectures, camera and photo activities, and group discussions, each class focuses on our three key benchmarks of composition, photography, and storytelling to teach the following classes:

  1. Foundations of Photography: Students get to know the camera and each other. They learn how to write a narrative with images by learning the importance of composition in photography and storytelling and how to take great pictures through our custom camera tool-belt exercises.

  2. Creative Expression: Students learn how and why emotions are powerful when communicated through an image. Students explore their own unique stories through activities and exercises that help them process their past, reflect on the present, and look to the future, encouraging them to embrace their storylines with wholeness and a passion for growth.

  3. Your Role in the World: Students learn portraiture as an art form to self-express and communicate an idea, story, emotion, perspective, or self-view. Students also learn how to create central themes to tell big picture stories as their story relates to the world.
