OCTOBER 14 – 16 2011
IN STUDIO AND ON LOCATION NASHVILLE, TN.
CLASS LIMITED TO 10 STUDENTS.
Jack Spencer has gained a reputation as one of the premier fine art photographers working today. His unique approach to making art is unparalleled and the wide range of his works is quite compelling. He has had over 100 solo exhibitions is some of the world’s finest galleries and museums. His work has been collected in a great many private and museum collections worldwide.
In this workshop, Spencer will teach some of his techniques and methods of achieving photographs that have verve, poetry and the transference of creativity to paper. From the initial approach of taking a photograph, which Spencer considers to be the most important element of making an image, to making texture layers and coloring and also printing, glazing techniques and varnishing. There will be an emphasis on model photography, portraiture, landscape and flowers.
Jack would like to emphasize that he has no desire to turn others into versions of himself but to try and bring out the true artist that resides within each individual and their own means of self expression. He has no interest in being dogmatic in his lessons. To help students along in finding their own particular vision is his primary purpose.
Students are asked to bring along a laptop, preferably with Photoshop and Lightroom as well as a digital camera and a small hard drive as well as a good supply of cards and readers. All lab materials and models are included in the tuition.
Jack will be assisted by Jon Morgan, a Nashville photographer and artist of considerable skill.
