We are pleased to present the portfolios of the Photography Atelier 37 creative artists.
Photography Atelier is a portfolio and project building course for emerging to advanced photographers taught by Jennifer McClure and Emily Belz. Participants engage in supportive critical discussions of each other’s work and leave with a better understanding of the industry and an ability to edit and sequence their own work.
Instruction in the Atelier includes visual presentations based around an assignment which is designed to encourage experimentation in both subject matter and approach. Students learn the basics of how to approach industry professionals to show their work and how to prepare for a national or regional portfolio review. There is discussion of marketing materials, do-it-yourself websites, DIY book publishing and the importance of social media. Students learn the critical art of writing an artist’s statement and bio.
The students here were part of our year long portfolio development program from Fall of 2022 to Spring 2023 and we are thrilled to see their work in the main gallery at Winchester.
