Random Observations on Art, Photography, and the Creative Process. These short 2-4 minute talks focus on the creative process in fine art photography. LensWork editor Brooks Jensen side-steps techno-talk and artspeak to offer a stimulating mix of ideas, experience, and observations from his 35 years as a fine art photographer, writer, and publisher. Topics include a wide range of subjects from finding subject matter to presenting your work and building an audience.

Quality as an abstract idea is one thing, but seeing quality work directly with your own eyes is the best way to learn what quality photography really is. This is one of the reasons I love workshops - it's an immersion experience in seeing quality work from samples, from the instructors, and from the other participants. Where else can you see such a diverse assortment of quality originals up close? This fall, we are offering two immersive experience workshops here in Anacortes, just a couple hours north of Seattle. Brooks will once again teach a hands-on folios and chapbooks workshop scheduled for three full days in mid-October. The following weekend will be a series of 4 half-day seminars modelled after our Road Shows of the last two years. If you missed the Road Show, you can still attend Brooks' seminars on Projects . . . Image & Text . . . Finding an Audience for Your Work . . . and a new offering Printing & Publishing. You can attend any or all of these half-day seminars, but there is a 30% discount for those attending all four! In addition to the workshops, Brooks will be out photographing the day before and after each workshop for those who want to photograph our beautiful islands. And of course, we'll have lots and lots of work to view from our collections: including photogravures, special editions prints, folios, and original prints.
