with Andrea Gjestvang

In this online course you will learn the basic process when working on personal photo projects with a documentary/narrative approach.


During our six sessions we will talk about ideas and how an idea becomes an actual project - and explore different photographic approaches to tell a story, with the goal of finding the best possible way.


Andrea will also cover how to gain confidence when photographing strangers, overcoming your own fears, working in the field, editing and presenting work for different platforms - online, print, books, exhibitions etc.

Participants will be given assignments and Andrea will provide feedback on work presented. You will be encourage to share your photographic process in class.
