Peter Brown's Deardorff camera

In this course for experienced photographers, award-winning photographer Peter Brown critiques and provides direction for your work. After selecting a project for the semester, bring your work to class for consideration by Mr. Brown and other class members. Many previous students in these open and supportive sessions have had their work shown in galleries and published in magazines and books. Each session includes discussions on contemporary or historical photography. Technical help is provided, but the primary purpose of the course is growing your photographic vision and applying it to your ongoing body of work. All types of photography are acceptable, but work must be presented to the class in print form. Instructor approval is required to register for this course.
