Nancy LeVine

Nancy LeVine will work closely with you to identify your photographic story, and to develop a plan for exploring it in greater depth and breadth. If you are just starting, or have a series of ideas or beginnings, we will set a course for expanding your project and discuss what might constitute a ‘complete’ story of your subject, or, if you have a long-term work in progress, we will look at your bank of images in connection with your goals to help you understand how to edit your work, and fill in gaps in your story. If you have just returned from a trip where you have taken many photographs, this class can help you select the photographs that best speak to your experience. There are always many stories within a journey. Please contact me for more information about workshops.
