About the class
Photography Atelier, in its twentieth year, is a unique portfolio-making course for emerging to advanced photographers. In addition to guidance and support in the creation of a body of work, the
class prepares artists to market, exhibit, and present their work to industry professionals.
Each participant in the Atelier presents a final project in the form of a print portfolio, a photographic
book or album, a slide show, or a mixed media presentation. In every Atelier, students hang a gallery exhibition and produce work for their own pages on the Atelier website. To see the photography of present and past Atelier students and teachers, please visit www.photographyatelier.org.
