Chuck's course taught me to SEE differently. I came in to this twelve-week experience feeling a bit helpless and lost in my compositions -- unsure where to be in space relative to my subjects and unsure how to shoot in those (let's be honest, MANY) in-between moments where nothing in particular was happening. Now, after, I have a game plan. Where I previously saw blah -- nothing, I now notice elements and details that give potential to a strong and compelling photo, in the absence of a decisive action. And for a visual artist whose work is in documenting the relatively mundane story of family life, that is A LOT.
Chuck's course taught me to SEE differently...his mentorship went above and beyond. He is an incredibly giving, thoughtful guide who has studied the masters in and out, and brings that education and knowledge with him into the course, sharing it generously with his students...IN TERMS OF PERSONAL ATTENTION, THIS CLASS IS UNPARALLELED.
Chuck's mentorship went above and beyond. He is an incredibly giving, thoughtful guide who has studied the masters in and out, and brings that education and knowledge with him into the course, sharing it generously with his students. In addition to well planned lessons, detailed critiques, and thought-provoking challenges to look deeply within, Chuck makes ample time for impromptu one-on-one chats. In terms of personal attention, this course is unparalleled.
I am a person who needs to be pushed, and Chuck rose to this challenge. Enough to make me feel engaged and inspired, but not to the point of overwhelm.
I made some of my life's strongest work during Chuck's class. It's a lot to digest and will take time for me to fully incorporate it all, but I feel confident that I'm entering a new, elevated arena with the skills I have learned from Chuck. I couldn't be more thankful for this experience.
