In the summer of 2018, I self-started my own workshop series titled "It's Personal". I believe our photographs live within us. It’s only a matter of time before they actually take form. I take pictures when I have something to say - when I feel ready. It’s imperative for me to be artistically engaged all the time. This manifests in different forms. I have found ways to marry my various obsessions with photography through project conception, editing, collaboration, book making and self-publishing.
My vision for "It's Personal" is to create an intimate and safe space. An honest space with no boundaries. I will push you - you decide how far you want to go. It is an intensive visual laboratory for a limited group of participants (no more than 8) to let go of worldly distractions and for a day or two, spend time focusing on their vision, intention and ways of expression. We spend long hours project editing in a group setting and in one-on-one sessions. We explore current issues in photography and publishing. I share my contacts with you. Your work will move forward after this experience as long as you are ready to accept what you hear. I want to create a community. I am grateful for the people who have helped me along the way. I intend to pay it forward.
If you wish to attend "It's Personal - Intensive Visual Laboratory", pls email your interest and location. I curate these across a number of venues & locations around the world and will cater to have one where you are.
