June 6th to 9th 2019

$350+ tax

Join Maurice and Karen for The Expressive Photograph creative workshop. We will explore the connection between illustrating your surroundings, representing your individual perception of the landscape and treat light as the subject.

Embracing the rhythm of photographic language, we will seek to capture mood in a moment of visual awareness to bridge the transient light with the sublime that resides in ordinary places to etch your individual vision into an image.

The objective of this workshop is to transport all participants to a serene state of mind and develop an appreciation for aesthetic and light to create expressive photographs with propose, rather than to document appearances.

 We believe, art should draw the viewer in, incite feelings, move the soul, motivate the mind and inspire creativity.

 Join us on this fun and challenging workshop (Thursday evening to Sunday afternoon), where you will learn to look closer and deeper at your subjects, discover how to create poetic photographs while immersing yourself in the rich subject matter of dramatic colour and open spaces to create stunning fine art abstract photographs.

The land and seascapes of Cumberland County encircled by the Bay of Fundy can grant a calming sense of being.

Photography is the language of light, colour, shape, texture, and emotion. Your ability to use this language effectively is the basis of how we approach each ArtQuest Photography Workshops. 

Any camera today can make perfect pictures, but only by seeing photographically can you convey an emotion, express your style, and create images that rise above the mere “snapshot”. 

Our workshops are designed to provide you with the inspiration, the skills, and the personal attention that will help you advance your creative vision and realize your photographic potential.
