In this immersive workshop, students will work with professional photographer Christopher Dibble to understand the unique art of portraiture. Becoming both photographer and subject, students will take a portrait of a peer that captures their essence and sit for a peer as they do the same. The goal is that by the end of the workshop, students will have two tangible photographs: a portrait of a peer to include in their portfolios and a portrait of themselves.  Students who apply should be comfortable both in front of and behind the camera as each photographer will also serve as “model” for a peer.  

Please Note: This workshop was rescheduled from January 13th, 2024 to February 10th, 2024 due to severe weather.
