Photography from Concept to Print to Gallery


Photograph by Barbara Tyroler

Whatever the photographic concept—landscape to portraiture, fine art, social justice photojournalism, commercial, or studio practices—workshop participants will learn advanced level skills to strengthen their portfolios culminating in an exhibition, public reception, and an educational community forum at the FRANK Community Outreach Gallery during the October month of photography in the Triangle.

Under the guidance of photographers Barbara Tyroler and Durward Rogers, participants will sharpen their photographic skills and camera techniques to create, edit, print, curate, mount, market, and hang their work with accompanying artist statement and wall text. Instruction includes advanced Photoshop techniques, individualized portfolio development, and printing techniques for fine art display. Experimentation with various photographic papers and presentation models for exhibition will be explored. (16 hours / Intermediate)

She offers independent critique, workshops, and seminars for photographers and is currently photographing North Carolina creative writers and the spaces they inhabit.
