CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY FOR THE SOUL
Jack Davis with Guest Teachers Dewitt Jones and Rik Cooke
To Register for either workshop, email: JackDavisWorkshops@gmail.com
These two 7 day retreats are both dedicated to sharpening the eye, expanding the mind and opening the heart – as we give ourselves permission to fall in love with photography all over again! Recapturing that eagerness and enthusiasm of a child, we explore the endless ways we can integrate creativity into our lives! Renowned artist, author and Photoshop Hall-of-Famer Jack Davis, with National Geographic alumni and Hawai’i “Kama’ainas” (locals) Dewitt Jones and Rikki Cooke, will once again teach this creative photography and digital imagery workshop.
Whether you are a professional photographer, an addicted amateur or someone just deliriously giddy about your smartphone camera (as we are), this week is for you! And while we explore all corners of Moloka’i – from flower-filled rainforest valleys, to Hawaii’s longest (and emptiest) white sand beach, to the world’s tallest sea cliffs, to palm-fringed lagoons with hired hula dancers – you’ll explore new ways to shoot and shape your photography in ways you never thought possible. Learn new methods to craft that visual “story” you’ve always wanted to tell but may never have had the time, opportunity, skills or inner permission to before. Learn steps to optimize, enhance and creatively interpret your images using everything from the latest Lightroom and Photoshop, to the plethora of mobile and desktop apps that are daily introducing new ways to stretch the creative photographic process. Join us for an amazingly fun and inspirational week that will change your photography and your life forever!
