This class is a free-form photographic journey that takes place over eight meetings. Each student selects a specific topic and is able to take a deep dive into that aspect of photography. Thom will mentor each student through the process of discovery. Class meetings will be open discussions as well as critiques of the students’ progress. This group approach will expose each student to others’ insights and perspectives.
