Immerse yourself in a creative and supportive learning environment where you can produce some of your greatest photographs! Portfolio Projects is a six-month-long class that uniquely blends the structure and comradery of a classroom with the focus and guidance of private training and mentoring. In this class, you will be taken through the entire process, from the birth of your idea to the hanging of your best photograph on a gallery wall! It’s time to start your personal project and we are here to help!

Portfolio Projects is a class for photographers who want to challenge themselves, create compelling photographs, and push their work in a new direction. The primary focus of the class is to help navigate each student through the complicated process of developing and executing a long-term portfolio project. The primary goal of the class is for each student to create a final portfolio of 10 exceptional photographs that will propel them forward in their creative endeavors.
