Steve Pyke, internationally known photographer and former staff portrait photographer at The New Yorker, will lead this workshop for beginner to intermediate photographers. Steve will teach you the dynamics of portrait photography in this workshop and the various angles from which you can approach any assignment. Steve will be choosing portrait assignments focused at Castle Hill and one outside location at the dunes near Provincetown. Students will also have the opportunity to learn basic darkroom techniques.
*Please Note: Analog camera preferred, but digital is OK.*
Students are highly encouraged to attend Steve's lecture at Castle Hill the Thursday before the workshop begins, where he will present on his work and life as a photographer. The lecture fee will be included in the workshop cost. For more information on Steve's lecture, please click HERE.
A note from Steve:
Firstly I want to say there are no rights and wrongs to portraiture. I am a self taught photographer and so have learnt the hard way making my mistakes and indeed successes. It’s important for you to experiment and above all make sure both you and your subject enjoy the experience. We are going to touch on the different elements I feel are important in portraiture; content, composition, facial expressions, approach, lighting, double portraiture and groups.
