Skill/Experience level: Advanced.  Instructor approval required.

This eight-month class is The Los Angeles Center of Photography’s “master” class. It is designed for serious photographers who are interested in creating a significant personal project. Students will work toward creating a strong, cohesive body of work that will culminate in LACP’s biggest exhibition of the year, an exhibit that will be showcased in both galleries for a month-long run.  

After presenting project ideas in the first class, the ensuing five class sessions will be spent critiquing on-going work thoroughly. We will analyze approach, quality, and progress of the projects. Students will be encouraged to research their projects in preparation for publishing, and in addition, work on the publicity and marketing of their projects. Each student will be pushed toward the goal of creating a well-developed and polished body of work, a well-written statement, and the tools to launch the project into the fine art or documentary market. Participants will also produce a self-published photo book of their project. The final two class sessions will focus on the production of the photo book and planning and preparation for the exhibition’s opening night reception, currently scheduled for Friday, September 26, 2014. (Date subject to change.)
