Harold Rhenisch

Learn to tell stories with photography

Bring your digital camera and walk with Harold Rhenisch through the scenery of Campbell River

The Campbell River Arts Council and the Museum at Campbell River, as part of the 2013 Haig-Brown Memorial Lecture, are offering an opportunity to attend a workshop by this year’s lecturer Harold Rhenisch.

The workshop will be given on Saturday, Sept. 28, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Museum at Campbell River.

In the morning session from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, the theme will be Photographing for Blogging. Bring your digital camera and walk with Rhenisch through the scenery of Campbell River and learn the techniques of photography as a form of environmental narrative. The techniques Rhenisch will share will lead to intensified visual narratives and complementary suites of photographs perfectly suited for blog narratives, photo books and serial work on Facebook.

After the walk, participants will be guided into the kinds of narratives that can be built out of walking-based photography.

The afternoon session will be guided into mapping their images into presentational formats.

The afternoon session will be from 1-4 p.m. and is entitled Renewing Environmental Language through Photographic Narrative. Participants will explore and practice new ways of writing that moves beyond books into photographs and community building.

The workshop will examine contemporary possibilities for words and photographs to strengthen each other into intense and pleasurable communication tools.

Through blogging and photo-book exercises, discussion and readings, the workshop process will provide a path to creating engaging, image-rich language.

The cost for this combined workshop is $50.
