We all have high hopes for our photography when we travel. We aim to capture not only the beauty of our surroundings, but the special moments we experience along the way. Learn how to go beyond snapshots and take your travel photography to the next level. In this intensive 7-week session, photographer Jordana Wright will introduce and explore the major genres and considerations vital to successful travel photography. Through lectures, creative assignments, and photography sessions, you’ll learn ways to visually explore locations, find their essence, and create dynamic, compelling images in your journeys. Between classroom time and time shooting in the beautiful tourist destinations right in our backyard, you’ll be ready for whatever adventure next comes your way.
