Focus on Your Talent

This session will meet:
5 Consecutive Monday evenings, 6-8 pm



“From random images to unified projects, aesthetically and intellectually, that provides the photographer with a sense of personal achievement ”

This 5-week journey of discovery follows everyone’s creative potential, regardless of experience, and will result in creating more consistent and unified images, utilizing specific themes relevant to each participant.

The topics explored revolve around ideas and concepts, influences, intent, genres, techniques and their individual applications to a specific project. The review of images on a weekly basis serves to emphasize the unity of each individual project, explorations of personal aesthetics, compositional principles, post-production techniques and presentation principles.

Participants should bring images in large jpg formats on a jump drive or cd for the first lecture, and be expected to produce images for the following segments, with a final assembly of photographs in a unified format at the end of the seminar.

About the Instructors:
Pierre and Cathy Dutertre

[P]ierre and Cathy Dutertre have been making photographs together for well over ten years as a husband and wife duo, from commercial projects and fine art ventures that reflect their varied individual and complex pasts.

They project their unique psyches with expressive and reflective imagery of the world and their presence within it, seeking answers to metaphysical questionings through a symbiotic creative collaboration.

Their images reflect a constant quest for spiritual, existential and philosophical pondering, a somber search at times for the essence of life and the world around them.

As career artists, Pierre and Cathy are constantly engaged in the many aspects of art, from producing new engaging work on a regular basis, to mentoring and consulting with emerging artists and judging competitions worldwide. They own and manage a fine art photography gallery representing photographic artists from Europe and the US.
