Advanced Membership

Intentional Photography Advanced Membership includes Four New lessons per month.

The Advanced Membership is ideal for any novice, intermediate or experienced photographer that is looking to take their photography to a much deeper level and grow their practice and artistic vision. It is designed to increase proficiency and intentionality, no matter what your previous experience may be.

The Advanced Membership begins at a foundational level (for every member) and expands in depth and technical proficiency over time, as you continue your membership and photography practice.

The bi-monthly lessons will alternate between four modules; Visual Techniques, Camera Techniques, Social Techniques and Artist Techniques.

Visual Technique, provides practical lessons that include but are not limited to composition, design theory, perspective, spacial awareness and visual intentionality. The objective is to increase awareness of how we perceive our world and translate it into a 2-D photographic medium.

Camera Techniques, provides practical lessons that include but are not limited to exposure, lighting, camera modes, and lenses. The objective of this course is to increase technical proficiency and understanding of operating a DSLR and smart phone camera in order to enhance creative output.

Social Techniques, provides practical lessons in categories of communication and connection. This includes but is not limited to, social media, publications, fine art, and portfolio development. Lessons are crafted around the continuing conversation and questioning of our societal and personal development around the photographic image, and how we contribute and consume.

Artist Techniques, provides practical lessons that include but are not limited to thematic project development, portfolio curation, artist statements, mixed mediums, history of photography, and crafting a personal photographic vision.

My traditional training is deeply rooted in academia and fine art. I have been working with a camera formally since high school when I took my first black and white photography course (yes, with a darkroom, film and the wonderful smell of fixer!) Little did I know that would be the beginning of a non-stop unfolding of photography, opportunities and creative growth. I completed undergrad with a Bachelor of Fine Art in photography and then after a year of wandering in the mountains of Colorado, I went back to school and continued my fine art education, completing a Master of Art and Master of Fine Art in photography.

So as you might imagine I love digging deep into the why behind our photographs and what drives us to capture and create!

I think the love of travel snuck up on me, but ironically it did join my life around the same time as photography. I mention this because it is a foundational piece of shaping my desire to start the Intentional Photography program. I took my first trip overseas in 2001. Something opened up for me on that trip that allowed me to experience a sense of exhilaration, freedom and the unexpected ability to be more myself than I had ever felt before. Since that time, travel and photography have continuously weaved in and out and all around my life, stuck around for the long haul and have been two of the most truly transformative partners in my life.

Teaching photography started for me in academics, but over the past nine years it has taken different forms such as, adjunct professor, high school teacher, hosting workshops, guest artist, one-on-one tutoring and seven years of expedition leading with National Geographic Student Expeditions. Photography opportunities and travel has taken me all over the globe; Australia, New Zealand, Tanzania, Kenya, Italy, Greece, England, Iceland, Belize, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, the majority of the continental United States, Alaska, and Hawaii.

At the core of me I truly believe, if we let them, travel, human connection and being fully present are the biggest teachers of our lives.
