Unique locations and local people where a vibrant life and culture resonates centuries of history
You will be inspired and challenged to see and photograph in new ways.
"In the era of social media, too many people are concerned with re-creating the shots that other people have taken - rather than putting themselves in an orginal story. Here you will find your own story."
The first day begins a transformational journey engaging meaningfully with the people, history, environment and culture of the destinations.

A gallery tour in New York City's famed Chelsea art scene.
There are now over 130 galleries and The New Museum and ICP in Lower East Side. Ten of the top galleries who regularly show photography will be selected according to the current show they have on exhibit.
Led by Claudia Sohrens, we will have comments and conversations, sometimes joined by a gallery representative, about the images and current trends. After reviewing the new spring photography shows, 10 will be selected to show the diversity of the new fall shows. Note, this is not a formal structured workshop or seminar but rather a format to spark thinking and encourage dialogue.

Pricing Your Work in Today’s Market
For many still and motion photographers, pricing commercial assignments and fine art work has become a blind guessing game where you lose if you’re too high or if you’re too low. And, when you ask about pricing the answer always seems to be “it depends.” How can you figure out the fair market value of your work or what clients really want and value when it’s so hard to get answers?

NEW PHOTOGRAPHY - A HANDS-ON, IN-STUDIO CREATIVE WORKSHOP
TAUGHT BY CLAUDIA SOHRENS*
In this workshop we will develop a fresh vocabulary of photographic styles and surfaces. We will use our known rules of image making and turn them into a site of play and see how far we can go with our creative possibilities.
As a starting point we will experiment in the studio by arranging and photographing small objects we bring in (they must all fit into a large zip bag) We will setup for table top photography, process and print. From the print we can scan, cut or alter the print to re-assembe and rescan or re-photograph. We will craft new compositions and constellations of interconnected references. (NOTE - you might also bring in some of your own prints that would like to incorporate into the original photography we will do).
