This workshop is designed for documentary and fine art photographers who aspire to develop and transform a long-term personal series into a portfolio to behold and be proud of. Through classroom discussions, written and shooting exercises, critiques and portfolio reviews, this class will provide students the tools to articulate their vision and create a meaningful long-term body of work. We will discuss and apply practical topics such as long-term project development, statements, sequencing and portfolio editing. Working together as a group and individually, we’ll develop the very best presentation that meets each student’s own sensibilities and target audience, such as gallerists, publishers, designers or fine art curators.
Susan Burnstine is an award winning fine art and commercial photographer originally from Chicago now based in Los Angeles. Her work is represented in galleries across the world and has been widely published in print and digital formats. During her career Susan has created twenty-three handmade film cameras and lenses out of plastic, vintage camera parts, and random household objects, with single-element lenses molded from plastic and rubber. Learning to overcome their extensive optical limitations required her to rely on instinct and intuition—the same tools that are key to her creative work that interprets the artist’s dreams. She has written for several photography magazines, including a monthly column for Black & White Photography (UK). Susan is one of the few photographers avidly pursuing alternative processes to create an idiosyncratic and deeply personal visual landscape.
