Future Imagemakers Workshop

What is the Future Imagemakers Workshop?

About the Program

The Future Imagemakers Workshop is a free high school program in which students photograph their families, friends, and communities to create photographic essays exploring their day-to-day lives, dreams, concerns, and challenges. The workshop runs for 14 Saturdays during the spring semester.

A Future Imagemaker is someone who makes images, and creates visual content for paper or screen-based media in a variety of contexts, including art, journalism, documentary, fashion or other. The field of photography and imaging has expanded as our visual world has expanded. If you find yourself drawn to telling stories capturing people, events, and other visual aspects of life through the lens, you may be a Future Imagemaker.

Digital cameras and all supplies are provided. To see past student work and for more information, please visit www.futureimagemakers.photoandimaging.net.
