This October, I am offering a special course for teen students of all levels of photography: “Experience, Create & Share”.

Experience: learning to see, hear, taste & feel in the moment…to understand what defines the moment and provide the basis for choosing a subject or scene;

Create: what is the dominant sense that will make someone else feel what I feel and how can I represent that in a visual manner; and

Share: what elements of composition and lighting will allow me to share this same experience with the viewer…how can I bring them into the scene instead of merely watching it.

The course will meet four times on Saturdays starting October 4th from 15:00 to 17:30 at a meeting place in central chosen for that specific lesson plan. The cost is €250 per student and pre-registration is required to ensure limited numbers. Each lesson includes a half hour discussion on technique and theory followed by 2 hours of photographic creativity, expression and exploration. Each student is given individual guidance based on their level of photographic knowledge.

In addition to my University & Academy teaching, for over seven years I have been offering private and group courses to teen students in Florence. Some former students have gone on to study photography at the University level, attended international design academies such as Central Saint Martins in London and received internships at Magnum Photos in New York.

While not all students go on to pursue careers in photography, through the workshops, all do find a new voice to share the unique way in which they experience and interact with the world. The lessons I teach teens are specifically designed with their age and state of development in mind, providing some technical instruction within the larger context of applied creativity, passion and fun.

All courses provide a certificate of accomplishment which can be valuable in college applications. Courses are taught in Italian and English to suit the mother tongue of students. We live in a world that is becoming more and more visual and the ability to communicate through imagery is becoming what expositional writing was to the 20th century: a necessity for any professional.

Please feel free to call me regarding the course or ask any questions: 339/7483966 or email mja@markabouzeid.com.
