Course #IL01
Alex Braverman

One day Alex Braverman woke up and realized all his photographs looked the same. If you've ever had that feeling - that you're creating the same thing, day in and day out - then you NEED this course.
 
Spend the day with Alex and learn from his experience as you put aside all the conventions you've ever learned or seen. In this course, you'll photograph various subjects, using your own instincts and attitude and rediscover the creativity you have inside. Go on supervised shoots throughout the city and then spend in-depth time discussing what you captured, and more importantly, "why." Whether it's buildings or landscapes, order or chaos, this is your opportunity to shoot what you want and why you want it. Reconnect with your art for a day like no other!
