Photo project seminar @ LBCC PhotoFest

This last week I was in dicussions with the folks who are organizing the Long Beach City College PhotoFest, which runs from April 1 – 4th, 2009 about a potential half-day program I could lead. And now its a reality.

I am on this year’s agenda for a three hour program on Developing a Photo Project, which will be starting at 9am on Saturday morning, April 4th, 2009.

The topics I am going to cover are: Why develop a series?, Essence of a series: Mission, Goals, &  Objectives, Short term vs Long Term Projects, Keeping a Project on Track (Project Management), When to develop a Project?, Non-linear series development > a messy conundrum, Staying the course, Journeying, an introspective discussion, Thematic alternatives, and Hasn’t This been Done Before (Old themes in New Clothes)?, and finally, Why “You” make a difference.

And there will be a couple of break out work sessions to work on a some workshop assignements. Probably a lot to cover in three hours, but it should be fun.

The good news if you are in the area, all of the programs at LBCC PhotoFest are free, so sign up and I look for me on Saturday, April 4th.

Best regards, Doug

  1. Have you considered recording/ sharing these presentations? I’d be interested even in just hearing the audio and seeing the presentation (though video might be good too)

    It is tough for me to get to Long Beach but the content sounds interesting.

  2. Hooray for Gordon! I can’t answer for anyone else, but I would be happy to purchase an audio. Of course, a video would be more than swell, but the audio would be dandy.
