Ocean Images Photography Workshop

Become an Image Maker!


At a time when the art of photography has become blurred by technology, what separates a picture from a piece of artwork?
Creating images that stand apart requires a sensitivity to light, composition and emotion. Putting all these elements together renders photographs that are more than a picture. This is the artwork of photography. Visual literacy is learning to see with your eyes, mind and heart.

I look forward to meeting with you on Tuesday August 13 4pm-dark through Wednesday 14 morning – noon and sharing my vision of this wonderful artform, PHOTOGRAPHY.
