Contemplative Photography Course Information

Overview of the five week online course

  • A Five Week Course

    In this course we meet live via online video or via phone (if your bandwidth does not support video).

    During the meetings learning will be presented and then we will have small group breakouts to facilitate and review the learning.

  • Online Class Schedule

    The class will meet every Saturday at 10:00 AM until 11:30 AM from June 6 - July 12M, with the exception of July 4th.

    Classes are recorded in the event that you have a schedule conflict with one of the dates.

    During this course we will be practicing and learning during the live class as well as doing work at home; either outside or within the place where you live.

  • Peer Review Discussion

    Throughout this course you will be developing your skills in awareness, mindfulness, and photography. You will be building a portfolio of work to express the special moment that you experience.

    Participants share their work in a private forum and receive feedback and ideas from their peers.
