"We aren't photographers for the pictures.
They are merely the consequence of a process"
A CAMERA IS A BOX OF DECISIONS

For me at least, photography has very little to do with taking pictures - that is just a consequence of the action of pressing a button. At its best, photography should be a thought process, an emotional activity where we have a conceptual plan - we are not just snapping. Beyond our settings, there should be reason, beyond our composition there should be an idea.
My workshops explore these concepts - there is a lot to be said for standing and staring for a while, closing our eyes and breathing in, feeling the wind on our face - these things hint at what we should capture, why we should capture. A filter is a tool, nothing more.
THE CONCEPTS WE WILL INVESTIGATE

◊  The camera is a box of decisions
◊  We determine the mood of the image
◊  We are photographers, not editors
◊  Everything we do informs the next thing we do
◊  The camera helps us understand our place in the world
◊  As such, we don’t photograph for the pictures, we photograph to learn something 
◊  Shoot what’s inside of you - don’t copy the works of others
