” Freedom of Expression”

A Workshop in Photography as Art

Expression of an Arbutus tree

Art is the language of expression.

Through illustrated talks on art and photography, in-the-field art projects, and collaborative evaluation sessions, you will discover new ways to interpret your most familiar realities into new, unique, and never-before-seen expressions, using in-camera techniques. You will journey toward becoming a true photographic artist.

  • Journey beyond representational image making. By blending technical and creative aspects of photography, you will celebrate new ways to communicate visually.
  • With personalized assistance, you will take your photography beyond the obvious, and to a level you never knew existed or thought possible.
  • The ‘in-camera’ techniques will free you to visualize and develop your unique expression.

The art of expression should be exploratory. On this 2-Day workshop we will do this, and you will start your journey toward photographic artistry.

As with the images below, you can begin to interpret your world with a new freedom of expression using in-camera techniques.

Landscape.   Representational

Further examples of Expressive photography can be seen in my Expressionism and Abstract portfolio’s on my website.

“The Chris Harris Photo Workshop opened a whole new realm of photographic possibilities and opportunities. The MCC team learned firsthand that is was possible to accomplish a great deal more ‘in-camera’ than what they previously thought possible. The results obtained under Chris’ guidance were nothing short of remarkable.”  G.L. ; Montreal Camera Club – 2018.

“I had an amazing time at your new Expressive workshop Chris. Thank you so much for coming here and for being such an enthusiastic and great instructor”.    M.S.;    Prince George Photographic Society -2018

Chris’ workshop was very inspirational and provided new methods to make creative imagery from the most unlikely subject matter”.    A.P.; Montreal Camera Club – 2018
