Map & Details for Discovering Your Creative Photographic Path Remote Learning

These Zoom sessions will fully reflect the same content as with the on-ground workshops offered by the FMoPA institute.

Most beginning photographers tend to randomly capture images of everything they see and experience, resulting in confusing portfolios of single photographs and a lack of strong intellectual and aesthetical bodies of work. This intensive 3-weeks workshop is designed to encourage all students to find their unique creative voices, resulting in solid directions for the future and applicable projects for everyone regardless of experience.

Creative photography is a process, one that utilizes a simple approach to establishing photography projects, otherwise known as concepts. Four keywords, WHY, WHAT, HOW and WHO serve as the foundation in forming intellectually and aesthetically resolved bodies of fine artwork. Finding your own creative voice is the result of applying this simple method to your photography projects, not an elusive born talent, but rather a process that involves writing simple artist statements, researching a particular subject matter or techniques and experimenting with the aesthetics of an idea, your idea. After an initial review of images, each student will be encouraged to pursue a single idea or project, resulting in a fully resolved mini body of work by the end of the workshop. Sequencing of images, simple artist statements and presentation ideas will be explored throughout.

Map & Details for Travel 2.0: Image Reviews Remote Learning

One on one remote learning: These Zoom sessions will fully reflect the same content as with the on-ground workshops offered by the FMoPA institute.

You asked for it. We listened! Based on YOUR feedback, FMoPA instructor and award-winning fine art photographer Scott Bolendz has designed a new workshop that will offer students constructive critiques of their own travel/vacation-related images (taken by both smartphone and DSLR/Mirrorless cameras).

Students will first review – with several examples – some of the core technical and aesthetic elements that make an image strong and engaging. Then, as a group, students will have their own images evaluated by the instructor (as well as by the class) using an identifiable set of objective and subjective criteria. The goal will be to highlight areas of strength, and opportunities for improvement, in the images reviewed. The instructor will also do live photo editing demonstrations on selected student images to illustrate easy ways to make a good photo look even better!

Finally, the instructor will personally choose a single best image submitted by each student, and then at the end of the workshop, the entire class will vote on the overall best image. The winner will receive a voucher to attend a future Scott Bolendz Photography workshop at FMoPA for free (with some restrictions*). Students should submit up to 10 of their best/favorite images prior to the class (submission details will be provided at the time of workshop registration).

Map & Details for Wedding Photography Basics In Person

In this class, I will go over the very few important basics of photographing a wedding. Content will include from booking the clients, engagement sessions, to understanding the required particular aesthetics for each wedding. Part of the class will include live posing techniques and how to interact with couples.

I’ve been a mainstream wedding photographer for the past two years. Through many trials, errors and meeting the right people (photographers) I’ve learned the best ways to photograph a wedding that is both unique but still captures the very essence of the whole wedding day.
