THE SPIRIT OF TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY
A one-week e-course. Your class begins on the day you register. $75
Traveling Light is a one-week e-course that focuses on moving beyond the commonplace travel snapshot. At their best, the images we make when we travel can touch on the human spirit. They can deepen the connections we share across cultures, and illuminate the beauty found in unexpected places.
Traveling Light is designed to help photographers make more meaningful, personal images of the world we live in. I believe that personal vision is far more important than any piece of camera gear. As luck would have it, it’s also lighter to pack! In this course, you’ll learn take your vision on the road, to tune in to the rhythm of a place, and to make images that truly reflect your artistic spirit. The course is on-demand, so it may be taken any time in preparation for a journey. Your course will begin on the day you register.
The wide world awaits! Grab your camera and join me on the adventure!
WHAT DOES THE COURSE INCLUDE?
The course includes inspirational readings, audio slideshows, and lectures designed to spark your creativity and get you thinking about your travel photography in fresh new ways. You’ll leave the course with a new set of creative tools to draw from on your next trip.
WHAT IS THE EXPERIENCE LIKE?
Traveling Light is designed to fit easily into your busy schedule. For one full week, you'll get a healthy dose of photo inspiration in your inbox each day. Unlike a traditional classroom experience, Traveling Light lessons can be taken at any hour of the day or night, whenever it suits you best. You can take the course on a red-eye flight across the Pacific Ocean, if you like. You can always repeat a lesson if you need to, and there is no such thing as falling behind. You'll have access to all the lessons for at least a year after the course ends. Since Traveling Light is an “on-demand” course, you can start on any date that is convenient for you. The online classroom is also a great, safe space for posting comments and receiving feedback on your images and ideas. Laura will be your personal guide throughout the course, supporting you with encouraging feedback and advice.
WHAT KIND OF CAMERA DO I NEED?
All cameras are welcome! You don’t need anything fancy to take this course. In fact, the simpler, the better! DSLRs, point-and-shoots, camera phones, pinhole cameras – I have a strict equipment nondiscrimination policy. Film shooters must be able to scan images to share in the online classroom.
HOW GOOD DO I NEED TO BE?
Since Traveling Light is a conceptual course rather than a nuts-and-bolts technical course, thoughtful photographers at any level may join. If you can operate your camera and upload images to your computer, you’ll be all set.
