This is a course to discover non-ordinary ways to create great images. Mesmerizing images. Work that makes the audience feel something.
For image-makers (photographers, artists, videographers, illustrators, filmmakers, etc.) this is an exploration of the unseen aspects of creativity — not the things that get taught at art school.
It’s about going deeper into the ocean of creativity. Many creators and artists live on top of the water — we will go below the surface. Exploring the unchartered territory where you can learn to feel the current and understand the unseen ecosystem of creativity.
And then you can emerge with greater access to the mystery of creative practice — and produce images that look and FEEL powerful.
In the course, you can…
It’s designed for image makers (beginners or established) — photographers, artists, illustrators, videographers, film directors, and more.
You might also be interested in metaphysics and going deeper into understanding unseen layers of things. You want to learn how they can open you and be applied to daily life.
And sometimes you might find yourself wondering…
What else is there to know? Is there a secret that other image-makers know?
I’m doing okay (or quite well!) in my work, but how do I take it to the next level? What’s next?
How to create work that’s (not just) praised but that’s also remembered?
How to unlock my creative edge, a deeper level I haven’t met yet?
How to make images I’m genuinely satisfied with and find *my* kind of success?
The course is delivered online via ZOOM live sessions in a series of six modules.
Each module is stand-alone and includes theory, home/class practice, practical fieldwork, live reviews of your work, and a Q&A with the facilitator, internationally renowned photographer, and visual artist Vlad Sokhin.
You can watch replays after the class is complete.
You can do as many modules as you like. There are no prerequisites for any of the first five modules.
