Photographic portraits are arguably the most meaningful and compelling images we can create. They speak volumes about who we are, who we think we are, and how we want to be seen. This course studies traditional, conceptual and experimental portraiture. Through assigned projects, critiques, and different working methods, a range of ideas, techniques, and styles are explored to help the student engage with and represent subjects in meaningful ways.

Note: This course is designed for intermediate to advanced photographers.

Instructor: Joël Bénard
