Environmental Portraits
with Petra Reeves

An environmental portrait is a portrait executed in the subject's usual environment, such as in their home or workplace, and typically illuminates the subject's life and surroundings. These images tell a rich and detailed story about the subject and give the viewer insight into their world. In this class we will explore how to achieve great images through story telling. This genre of photo journalism and editorial photography focuses on the relationship between the subject and their native environment.

Please register early, within 5 days of the start date, to reduce the likelihood of course cancellation.
