About This Class

This is a short course for photographers. The aim of the course is to turn you into writographers: artists who are creative writers AND photographers.

Why would you want to become a writographer?

In the course, you will be shown how to write simple stories to your photos. Stories can add a whole new dimension to your visual work. They can add a special and unique touch of magic to an individual image, to a series of images in a photographic book, or even to a public exhibition of your work.

You will learn to:

  • Wild write. This is a form of writing that bypasses thought and over-preparing, and relies on instinct and spontaneity. Anyone can do it, it’s fun, and it has formed the basis of all the writing that I have done in my career as a writographer.
  • See simple objects in a photo in wild and wonderful ways.
  • Use the 5 Ws (Who? What? Where? When? Why?) to focus on details and people in a photo and use them as story starters.
