Level-up your photos

Create more than just "singles"

Practicing visual storytelling can connect viewers to your photos in ways that singular "eye-candy" photos just can't do.
Leave a lasting impression. Entertain. Inform.

That's visual storytelling.

By the end of this course you will be able to

  • Create visual stories with identifiable characters, settings, and styles

  • Capture the essential "storytelling photos" when out with your camera

  • Plan a long-form photography project to work on over a period of time

  • Know when a Release form is required and how to get one (with downloads)

  • Edit your captured photos down to a selection that appropriately presents the story to your viewers
