Sam Abell-Master Class
May 18 @ 9:00 am - May 22 @ 4:00 pm| $1200
Join renowned photographer and teacher Sam Abell for a concentrated one-week workshop on beautiful Whidbey Island. Open to a select number of photographers serious about their work, this workshop will emphasize documentary photography of the life and landscape of Puget Sound. The workshop will also concentrate on the editing of work and the creation of photographic projects. Each day participants will engage with Sam in the field making new photographs and in the classroom editing existing work. With strong individual attention from Sam, participants will leave with a refreshed, more refined way of seeing and a distinct, more compelling body of work.
This workshop is limited to 12 students. The talented Keron Psillas will once again offer her expertise as Sam’s assistant for this workshop.
