2-Day Workshops

” Freedom of Expression”

A Workshop in Photography as Art



This 2-Day workshop is designed to take you on a journey toward photographic artistry.

With illustrated talks on art and photography, in-the-field art projects, and constructive evaluation sessions, you will discover new ways to interpret your most familiar landscapes and subject matter. By turning the vivid realities in front of you into new, unique, and never-before-seen realities, you will journey toward becoming a true artist.

“Since publishing my most recent book, where documentary style images were created to provide a sense of place, my photography has taken me in new directions.  With the freedom of a creative artist, I now find the traditions of Expressionism and Abstraction exceptionally appealing”.

Documentary photographs usually reveal a subject as special moments in time; often highlighted by dramatic lighting and or action.

Expressionist photographs also reveal the subject, but they are expressed in new non-traditional ways. They speak more about visual expression than about the subject.

Abstract photographs are more mysterious. They begin with real subjects, but by freeing up the elements of visual design, one is able to deconstruct physical realities and reconstruct them as new and intriguing creative realities.

The techniques you will learn will free you to visualize the possibilities of each of these photographic styles. You will begin to interpret your world with a new freedom of expression.

If you, as an individual or as a club, are interested in organizing a group of up to 10 participants for this 2-day workshop, please contact Rita Giesbrecht at the office; 250-791-6631 or photography@chrisharris.com

As we travel across much of Canada in 2018/2019 with our spectacular audio-visual presentation, I am able to bring this workshop to almost any location. A perfect combination for your club or organization could be both a presentation and workshop.

Call or email Rita to discuss details. We would love to hear from you.
