Workshop: Landscape Photography: Nature, Conservation and Advocacy
Workshop Description –
Environmental advocacy and conservation will continue as a prominent concern for years to come. Photography’s strength as a visual form of communication takes a vital role in advocacy. This workshop will cover various historical, philosophical, aesthetic and technical approaches to contemporary, expressive landscape photograph, while examining our own personal responses to the landscape and environmental concerns through our own photography.
