Join photographer Matt Black for a five-day, intensive workshop designed to sharpen your relationship to photography using New York City as an inspiration.
Matt will guide you to think critically about your work and consider your vision, your voice, and its role in the world. Building on this foundation, we will work towards sharpening the language of your photography so that it more closely aligns with your ideas and goals, highlighting your ability to interpret and visualize the world in a personal way. Participants will leave the class with a more focused and full formed approach to their photography, as well as an increased understanding of editing and sequencing.
This five-day course comprises two sections. The first part is a four-day intensive workshop photographing in the streets of New York. Working as a class, we will produce new work on a joint theme. Through daily image-making, and personal review sessions, we will strive to bring out the unique qualities and point of view of each participant’s work. On the final day, we will create a joint edit of the week’s work, highlighting each individual photographer’s vision.
Participants should bring a 20-40 image portfolio of their previous work, a digital camera, thumbdrive, and a laptop for editing.
This workshop is limited to 12 participants and is open on a first come first served basis.

That makes me feel that this is 100% true and that I can connect to what this person is feeling.” – Matt Black
