Note - this workshop is limited to 10 students

So you've been shooting relentlessly to tell the story you're so passionate about and its time to actually tell it to the world. How do you want to do that? The key to creating a cohesive body of work is editing, the art of separating the weed from the chaffs and editing one's own work is one of the most grueling processes in producing & presenting a photo project.

In this 2-day workshop, David will help put you on the right track with this incredibly difficult process. Starting with the end in mind, i.e. the final medium you have in mind for your project (book, website, exhibition or other), you will learn how to make important decisions related to the number of pictures, which of them to include, in what sequence and how to structure them. 

Who should attend 
You are an advanced photographer with a photo project that is close to completion.

What to bring
Please come to class prepared to edit and having thought about your desired final medium: book, portfolio, website or exhibition. Please bring images that you are unsure of as well as your favorites. You should also bring any supporting materials, e.g. project background, artist statements, installation photos.. etc. Bring them on a thumb drive.
