Part of the creative process is the act of recording for posterity what we have created. With the prevalence and affordability of digital cameras, combined with their instant results, there is no reason we all shouldn’t be able to make some sort of record of our art. This 2 hour session, taught by photographer Stuart Wagner, offers simple, affordable ways to photograph one’s craft with reproducible, quality results.
This workshop has three main aims: first, some basic photographic technical training will allow participants to be better at the nuts and bolts of making strong images. Second, Stuart will show participants several affordable, effective ways to photograph their work using both available and electronic lighting in simple studio-quality as well as more rustic settings. Finally, participants will gain skills to take their photography to the next level, creating images suitable for magazine or advertising pages.
Space is limited, so register early! For more information, or to register, call (336)873-8430 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This workshop will take place in the Education Building at the North Carolina Pottery Center (233 East Avenue, Seagrove, NC 27341).
About Our Presenter, Stuart Wagner:
My earliest childhood memories include a camera. As a teenager, I never thought that my photography would take me down the paths that it has. It was the source of college spending money that became a career as a photojournalist. It was a reason to be outside most of my younger days and became the reason I found myself in the presence of presidents, war-torn villages, football sidelines, fashion runways, incredible unknown people doing extraordinary things.
My photojournalism career started while at school in Virginia, then to more school in Missouri, after which I took my first job as a working photojournalist in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. I moved up through the ranks with jobs in Maryland and finally back to Virginia as a staff photographer with the Richmond Newspapers. Along the way, I held several freelance positions with the Associated Press, United Press International, Agence France Presse and various national magazines and several foreign publications.
I left the newspaper business in 2000 to pursue other interests but photography was always part of my life, as it continues to be today. Being able to have an outlet for my inner artist has lead me to this point. It is my hope to be able to keep looking, keep seeing and keep creating.
