From establishing shots to environmental portraits, award-winning photographer Mark Edward Harris discusses and demonstrates the techniques and concepts necessary to create a professional looking photo essay, a series of images that tell a cohesive story during the lecture portion of this workshop.

On Saturday morning, Mark will lead students on a hands-on photo shoot at the Huntington Library in San Marino, CA. During the hands-on section of the class students will have the opportunity to put theory into practice. *We hope to get timed tickets for a 10am entry on December 11th. We will advise you in advance if we cannot get tickets at that entry time.  You must purchase both the workshop fee and the Huntington Library ticket in order to attend the hands on shoot unless you are a member of the Huntington.

The workshop will conclude with a critique and discussion of marketing travel photo essays.
