Keron Psillas: Layering Your Intent

June 15 @ 9:00 am - June 19 @ 4:00 pm

| $750

Join Keron Psillas, award-winning photographer and author, to discover and refine a deeper intent for your photography. With six books Internationally award-winning books of photography published, Keron is creating a legacy of refined work with a passionate voice. 2019 was the debut of her fine press edition of Cavalo Lusitano: The Spirit Within, from Veritas Editions, and saw acclaim and awards for Lusitano:noble, courageous, eternal, as well as Loss and Beauty: creating solace in a land of infinite sorrow.

From Keron:
After teaching The Photography of Intent for 11 years, it is time to move to the next level. Layering Your Intent, my new 5-day intensive course, will bring all the principles I rely upon to create compelling, engaging images. The integration of who we are and what we bring to our work is paramount to this week’s dialogue.

With classroom instruction, discussion of images, daily critiques of new work, and capsules of information covering book creation, Lightroom developing, and daily work in the field, our week will be full to overflowing with inspiration and breakthrough. Each lecture is designed to encourage you to reach to the next level. Perhaps you want to exhibit…or create a book for a larger audience…fill in gaps of technical knowledge, or perhaps you simply (and importantly) want to deepen your ability to create expressive images that fully integrate your voice and vision. This class will support your intent.

Join me in one of my favorite places on earth, the PNWAS in Coupeville, to recharge your love affair with creative expression.

Note classroom hours: 10 am to 5:30 pm (but with flexibility) to allow us to shoot in the good light, morning and evening!

We’ll have two field trips during the week (via carpool) and a celebratory final dinner on Friday night.

This workshop is open to all photographers with a good working knowledge of their camera. If you wish to participate in image reviews, you will need to bring a laptop and a working knowledge of the digital workflow. This would include the ability to download your images to your laptop, make selections, and transfer images to your flash drive for projection from the class computer.
