Wide Open Spaces & Creative Inspiration
I spent the last few days out at the Oregon coast recuperating from Photolucida's portfolio reviews - the full-immersion photography event we run every two years. Whew! It was intense and fabulous - and really tiring. So, the wide open space and fresh ocean breeze were wonderfully grounding and nourishing. The picture above is the path I walked to the beach each day - it's such a simple, beautiful landscape.
Anyway, while I was there, I interviewed two lovely, visionary photographers (Heather Evans Smith and Ervin A. Johnson) for Light Atlas, my new e-course. After an 80-hour work week, it was an incredible gift to sit and look at the ocean while having inspiring, beautiful conversations about the creative process. We talked about pushing boundaries with our work, exploring the surreal, experimenting with extreme vulnerability in art making, art as activism, following up with flights of fancy, and creating sacred workspace. The recorded interviews (plus so, so much more) will be included in the new e-course....which opens for registration on May 2nd! I can't wait!
On that note...
EARLY REGISTRATION FOR MENTORING STUDENTS: OPEN NOW
If you're excited about Light Atlas, I just opened registration early for the e-course + mentoring option. There has been a lot of interest in the class and spaces are limited. If you enroll with the mentorship option, you're guaranteed a space in the class. I love to work with people one-on-one. Here are the details:
When you register for the e-course + mentorship, the course will include a phone (or Skype) call with me and a review of your past photographic work, your website (if you happen to have one), or any portfolios or extra images you'd like to share. Mentoring is a nice opportunity to chat about personal goals and challenges and to map out next steps with more guidance and support. Mentorship sessions are jam packed with ideas, detailed feedback, and actionable, personalized advice. Students often write pages of notes and come away excited and motivated to take their next steps. If focused one-on-one help is what you're craving right now, I'd love to work with you.
