This class is designed for intermediate and advanced students who are comfortable with the technical aspects of photography, who are looking to strengthen their narrative and in-depth project work. Students will be challenged to develop story ideas reflecting some aspect of life on Cape Cod, to enter into new environments, to negotiate access to subjects, and to develop a meaningful set of photographs. This class is designed for intermediate and advanced students who are comfortable with the technical aspects of photography, who are looking to strengthen their narrative and in-depth project work. Students will be challenged to develop story ideas reflecting some aspect of life on Cape Cod, to enter into new environments, to negotiate access to subjects, and to develop a meaningful set of photographs. Mornings and evenings will be spent  in the field, working on projects. The afternoon class time will focus on analyzing the work of professional photographers, reviewing student work, and discussing challenges and issues that emerge. 

Class Requirements:  Students are required to have a solid command of the technical aspects of photography, so that class work can be devoted to story development. In advance of our first meeting, students are asked to do some preliminary research and arrive with three possible project ideas that address the notion of Community on Cape Cod. Initial contact with possible subjects is recommended but not required. Please bring a portfolio of up to twelve images of previous work to show during our first meeting.
