Our Classes
We will be launching new classes weekly

Teaching Styles and Types of Classes

We approach the teaching of image-making, photography, and filmmaking as ever-changing sets of technical, conceptual, technological, and aesthetic conditions, all existing within broad social and cultural contexts and a shifting media landscape. We invite students to articulate a personal creative vision through their work, to be engaged in collaborative learning, and to gain an understanding of global practices.

Documentary and Visual Narratives

Challenge the boundaries of the documentary tradition and question the prevailing conventions of storytelling in photography. Subjective or conceptual documentation, diaristic interpretation and metaphorical narrative will be among the methods of visual practice. The value of content, and the need to establish a point of view will be encouraged as a means to challenge the dominant representation. Some classes will encourage visual narratives based on personal experiences and vision.

Audio, Video and Multimedia

Students are invited to explore and experiment with modern modes of communication to create new sensory experiences for audiences.

Book Arts and Zine Making

A photography zine is a tool that photographers can use to tell a visual story, to inform an audience about a specific topic or issue, to showcase and advertise a new idea or simply create a preview of an ongoing project. A photobook is a book — with or without text — where the work’s primary message is carried by photographs. It is a book authored by a photographer or by someone editing or sequencing the work of a photographer, or even a number of photographers. It has a specific character, distinct from the photographic print.

Personal Vision

The emphasis here is on shaping the photographer as an artist or visual storyteller. Build a strong portfolio, build creative vision and identity, tell stories.How does the photographer identify their subject matter? What is the process the photographer engages in to determine what he/she should/needs to photograph?

This initial discovery may come in the form of the various genres of photography – art, documentary, fashion, portraiture, landscape or the possibilities of a combination of any one of them. The inspiration may come from your world view and the desire to visually explore and articulate these intellectual and emotional concerns. Literature, film, theater, music, and popular culture are all sources to draw upon in formulating curiosities and interests.


We plan to offer a range of practical film making courses taught by experienced film makers, including directing, screenwriting, film making for beginners, and cinematography. These classes will cover narrative and documentary and will be mostly geared to short form and video.

Digital Workflow

Basic camera techniques and digital capture, developing entry-level skills in digital imaging workflow, developing skills with industry-related software like Lightroom and Photoshop, storing and naming, and working methods

Writing for the Screen

Develop and perfect your storytelling skills. Learn about writing for all screens from TV and Film to Games. A well-written script should be able to “capture your imagination” and help you visualize what the audience will experience on the screen. For documentary tips on research, creating a list of potential characters/interviews, basic storylines, areas of potential conflict and emotion.

Ask yourself, “what’s at the heart of this story and how do I “show” that visually


Ideal lighting for photography and video is challenging to teach online and our aim is to teach you with small and affordable home equipment. We will look at a range of options of courses, and our goal is to show you what is essential and what is optional. As with any lighting setup, you could build out a full studio with professional lighting and we will cover that also.

New and Immersive Media

Learn how VR content is created and how the 360 environment immerses viewers in a world. Gain insight into interactive content and story development. Explore projection and mapping and performance.


Our first workshop is in zine design and we plan to add lighting workshops within the coming weeks. Workshops will take place on weekends.

Student Reviews

To paraphrase Edward Hopper, If I could say it in words there would be no reason to make images. Thank you for the opportunity to use my visual words.

Eleanor Murray - Visual Storyteller

This course is exactly what I’ve been looking for. I am able to implement new techniques and practices while thinking conceptually about my work.
