Some people think that one is born a creative, or that one can only be creative when the muse” strikes. In many forums I hear photographers, and, indeed, creatives of any stripe bemoaning the fact that they just can’t get inspired. I don’t buy into this line of thinking at all. I see photographers who don’t actually create. They have one or two things that they do very well, and they simply replicate an image with minor tweaks. Take them outside their safety zone, whether it be a studio lighting set-up, or a tripod and f64, and they are fish out of water.
Creativity is a discipline. It can be learned. It can, and should, be exercised and trained regularly to the point where one can become creative on demand. In my workshop, “Thoughts Outside a Very Small Box”, I will give you access to a bag of creative tools that you can apply when you just have to have that “muse” there. By applying simple restrictions to yourself, and learning to see the environments you move in through a new set of eyes worlds of creative opportuntiy open.
By accessing these tools, and practicing with them, no photographer should ever be caught short for ideas and engaging images.
The workshops are enormously flexible and can be tailored to fit time frames, the available spaces and the age & skill level of participants, from primary school students through to professionals looking to burst out of a rut.
