About This Class

Crusade For Your Art: Best Practices for Fine Art Photographers gives you the tools to take your fine art photography career by the reins and thoughtfully and purposefully develop a plan to get you where you want to go.  Learn how to tighten your work, develop your brand, identify goals and a plan for your photography, and strategically launch your project.

In this third of ten courses, you will learn why an artist/project statement is important and how to write one. For the course project, you will write a project statement for your most recent project or body of work.
