Introducing The Art of Portfolio Creation
Continue your photography education with the newly redesigned Art of Portfolio Creation course
This fall we are hosting our first Art of Portfolio creation course. This year more people than ever have been asking for the follow up course to the basics. The Art of Portfolio Creation is a redesign of the Advanced Course. What exactly does this mean? Well, essentially we have edited the content to have a slightly different focus.
Find Your Voice, Develop Your Portfolio. How did we create this course differently?
In addition to exploring different areas of photography such as Night, Macro, Portrait and City Scapes, I wanted to introduce some additional concepts like Photography for Self Discovery… Discuss what is Art photography? How can it help you express yourself and learn about yourself… One of the goals I have for the students is that they learn what sets them and their perspective apart from other people’s and that can only be done through group critic and exploring multiple areas of photography.
For the redesigned course we dropped the “advanced” title. To follow an intense course like the basics course that combines beginner and intermediate knowledge it’s better to organise the follow up course by having a common goal rather then a common “level”. After the basics course, participants can be at all different locations on the path to mastering the knowledge. We are all still mastering these skills…. It’s perfect to have the goal of self discovery paired with exploring different areas of photography.
We also plan and execute a photoshoot together as a group during the course. We work with models and a moodboard which opens the opportunity to tell stories. Walking the participants through the process of planning a shoot, creating and working with a moodboard is a skill that can be used for every future photo ambition they have.
For the fall course photoshoot Akshay and Sarah modeled at Zuidas in Amsterdam. The models were clothed by designer Sarah van der Wilk and had make-up done by Femke Videler.
The course will be held two times a year with one course starting in February and the second one starting in September.
