Join photographer Ami Vitale for this enlightening week as she guides you to take your passion for photography and make a difference in your life’s work in the pristine Centennial Valley of Southwest Montana. The week long workshop will focus on how to take strong still images and turn them into compelling stories that make a difference. With only 6-10 participants, this intimate environment will leave you with the tools to develop and sustain a long term project, generate ideas for funding, and discuss possible outlets for your images. You’ll ride the stunning Montana range, learn about the managing landscapes holistically for the triple bottom line ($, ecology/wildlife, and community) and capture the truly wild spirit of the west with working cowboys and ranch life to native wildlife and untouched environments. Classroom hours provide you the time to hear Ami’s lectures, ask questions and learn not just how to create beautiful images but how to edit them into a cohesive, artful story. She will discuss how to find new opportunity with grant writing, working with NGO’s, creating multimedia slideshows, and producing gallery exhibits.
