This workshop is for photographers who want to go beyond working with single images and begin developing concepts and expressing their ideas through edited series, perhaps for publication, exhibition or portfolio presentations. Participants who are actively concerned with exploring new possibilities for visual communication will benefit most out of the day.

In the morning session we will analyse different approaches to project editing by looking at a variety of techniques used by established photographers to convey their ideas, and consider diverse forms of personal expression. Discussion will surround how to shape concepts starting with just a few images, to focusing on story development and vision, with the aim of inspiring new directions and potential end points.

During the afternoon session, the group will work together with participants' personal photographs and discuss methods for starting and progressing with your own edits. Each participant may bring along up to 30 prints they wish to start working from, ideally from the start of a series or project in-progress. For working purposes, prints will need to be handled and ideal size is 6"x4".
