One of the most common and frustrating aspects of any artistic pursuit is when you end up in a creative rut. Photographers at every stage of their growth and development professionally will undoubtedly end up blocked and feel like they need something to regain their voice and creativity. Whether you have lost your way, need a battery charge, or are looking to find or rediscover your style, you need to join Andrew Scrivani for his new class series Rut Recovery.
Food Photographers in this workshop will work out of their creative ruts by working on projects outside of their every day routine with the support and guidance of an industry expert. Andrew will help push you out of your comfort zone and find what works for you to refresh your work.
Andrew’s workshop will address common creative concerns, including:
In session one, Andrew will assess your creative wants and needs through structured, meaningful discussions about artistic intention and purpose. He’ll then craft an assignment as if he is your editor or creative director. Assignments will be chosen based on the challenges you want to tackle and your skill level. You’ll complete and submit the assignment before the next meeting.
In session two, Andrew will share feedback for the group, based on themes that emerged during his review of the assignments. He’ll also provide his assessment of your individual work and offer personalized feedback. This allows you to gain valuable experience pushing your creativity and technical skills without the high stakes of professional performance on the line.
In this workshop, you not only will engage with a seasoned professional photographer and instructor; you also will learn from other attendees. There’s power in doing this work in a small group setting of just 10 photographers. Each person will benefit from hearing the challenges, assignments, and critiques personalized for the other participants and build a creative community that can help you shake the creative blues and reawaken your inner artist.
