I’ll be teaching two courses for UVic Continuing Studies in the new year.

Introduction to Community Newspaper Photojournalism
This course is for photographers considering a career in photojournalism, bloggers who want to improve the visual content of their sites and for the photographer who wants to explore new avenues of creativity. Participants will study the five main types of photo assignment for the community photojournalist: news, sports, feature, environmental portrait and the photo essay. You will examine the images of working photographers, learn workflow and editing techniques and be given assignments to complete between classes.


Documentary Photography: Creating the Personal Project
In this course you will learn how to use the techniques of documentary work to create a personal photo project. Participants will examine the work of other documentary photographers and see how and why certain ways of seeing and photographing can be applied to their work. You will learn how to organize your own projects, budget time, find out how to edit a project and discover different ways to bring that project to a larger audience.
