Photography Workshop: Visual Storytelling


Photographer David Coulson will share his expertise in the art of visual storytelling in this afternoon-long workshop, held in conjunction with Oakville Galleries' spring exhibitions. After introducing participants to a range of techniques to create compelling, communicative images, Coulson will lead the group through a photo walk in Gairloch Gardens where everyone will have the opportunity to take a series of new images, share them with their peers and receive feedback from Coulson in a friendly environment. After the workshop, participants will have improved their ability to convey meaning and narrative in their photographs. No previous experience is necessary.
