Photography, ‘On Assignment’

Photography, ‘On Assignment’

‘On Assignment’ is a 2-day photographic workshop designed to challenge photographers using any type of digital camera (SLR, mirrorless, point & shoot, iPhone, etc.) This course will appeal to beginners starting to explore the elements of composition, using their camera as a creative tool, and to intermediate photographers who want to see if they can perform under deadline pressure. Have you got what it takes to go ‘on assignment’?

Students will be sent on a unique series of image gathering missions, shooting for a variety of different publications. Each assignment will present a specific photographic challenge, ie. instructions for playing with essential elements of the composition. Each assignment will lead to more creative challenges. As instructor, I will play the role of the publication’s photo editor, giving each photographer clearly defined goals that are open for visual interpretation. Editing and constructive critiques will take place in a group setting. There will be ample room for creativity here, with no fixed right or wrong … but one thing is certain: you’ve got to come back with the goods when you are ‘on assignment’.
