Keith Johnson Photographs


Maine Media Workshops

Exploring the unfamiliar and unexpected in the landscape.

August 3-9 I will be giving a workshop at MPW in Rockport, ME. I have been doing workshops there for 7 years now and invite all comers for a look at “Photographing the Contemporary Landscape.” We’ll have a look at what Maine has to offer, make use ot the Fuji sponsored printer, and make lots of photographs.

The landscape is an enduring subject for artists of all media who want to express the spiritual connection between human beings and their environment.

For nearly two centuries photography has provided the world with compelling and profound landscape imagery. This workshop focuses on myriad aspects of contemporary landscape photography including the beautiful, the classical, the romantic, the man-made, the cultural, and the unfamiliar. It is a class for fine art photographers, professional photographers and experienced amateurs working in color, who want to develop a personal approach to landscape photography.

Lectures, class discussions and critiques encourage and challenge students to move beyond the predictable image and clich├ęd notions of beauty. During field trips, students explore Midcoast Maine and the surrounding inland towns. Keith also covers career and professional issues such as portfolios, promotion and presentation.
