Yes, yours truely, Doug Stockdale, will be leading a half-day Developing a Photo Project seminar at the Long Beach City College (LBCC) PhotoFest, Long Beach, CA on Saturday, April 4th, 2009 from 9am to noon. And like the other programs at LBCC PhotoFest, is Free, but you have to register.
The topics I am going to cover are: Why develop a series?, Essence of a series: Mission, Goals, & Objectives, Short term vs Long Term Projects, Keeping a Project on Track (Project Management), When to develop a Project?, Non-linear series development > a messy conundrum, Staying the course, Journeying, an introspective discussion, Thematic alternatives, and Hasn’t This been Done Before (Old themes in New Clothes)?, and finally, Why “You” make a difference.
And there will be a couple of break out work sessions to work on a some workshop assignements. Probably a lot to cover in three hours, but it should be fun.
