Developing Your Photographic Voice

I’m going to be speaking about developing your photographic voice at the St. Catharines Photography Club this Saturday January  22 from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm.  Additionally, I’ll explore the motivations and development of my personal work, discuss techniques and workflow, and share my thoughts and experiences on photography as art.

Here is an excerpt from the presentation.

    •    Art is the manifestation of your reinterpretation of something based on your history, emotions  experiences, and sensibilities – through who you are.

    •    When you learn to embrace your individuality you begin the process of finding your style.
    •    Therefore art photography should speak of and for the photographer (you).


Art is comprised of two distinct and necessary parts, the artifact and the content.
The Artifact…
    •    Is the physical object.
    •    It speaks of craftsmanship, materials, and the senses.

The Content…
    •    Concerns concepts and story. 

    •    Is what gives meaning and depth to work.
A mix of both the artifact and the content is required because…
    •    Skill and craftsmanship enables a stronger, clearer message.
    •    Without depth and meaning the object is merely decorative.
