This is a one-day condensed workshop offering participants who couldn't attend on weeknights and opportunity to experience an in-depth exploration of their photographic vision.

Want to really grow as a photographer. Looking to spend the winter improving your skills. Here is an opportunity to be part of an intensive day-long workshop which will focus on understanding your photographic vision, your style, and how to bring both to the fore in your images.

Photography is a process which involves three activities -

1. Seeing the shot
2. Taking the shot
3. producing the final image (post-processing)

The strongest photographs occur when all three activities are in tune with each other. During this intensive workshop we will consider the initial vision which moved the photographer to take the shot and explore how best to realize that vision in the finished image. As we move deeper into the workshop we will begin to look more deeply at our photographic 'Voice" - the way we communicate in our images. Do we have a recognizable "voice" (style) in the way we present our finished product?

This workshop presents an in depth look at the photographic process, exploring such questions as:

Why did we take that particular photograph?
What do we want the final image to convey?
Which image elements should we use to ensure we communicate with the viewer?
How do we develop our vision?
What are the barriers to exercising our vision?
How does the viewer see the image?
The importance of compositional elements?
The importance of color and tone?

You will be asked to consider and explain why you took a particular photograph, what moved you and why, and more importantly, how do you convey those emotions and feelings to the viewer of your final image.

The workshop will be limited to no more than six participants and will meet from 10am until 6pm with a one hour break for lunch.
It is suitable for advanced level photographers and intermediate photographers who wish to gain a better understanding of their own photographic vision, and who want to experience the methods and skills of translating that vision into finished images which strongly conveys the power and emotion which drew you to take the shot in the first place.


The workshop will be led by Professional Photographer, Ian Murray. This will be a small and intimate group who will be expected to participate in intense discussion and exercises at a deep level. You will be asked to question and explore your whole approach to photography.

The location will be the relaxed setting of Ian's living room and light refreshments will be provided.
You should bring your own lunch.
The cost of the class is $150
