A five-week series, this class is intended for students who already have an understanding of the basic technical elements of a camera, including Shutter Speed, F-stop, and ISO. During our zoom calls, we will look at and discuss student work made between our classes, examine the work of both past and contemporary photographers, as well as discuss compositional theories regarding how photographs construct visual narratives. During our in-person sessions, students will be given two assignments, with close to an hour to complete them. However, these assignments are optional, and students are always encouraged to follow their own interests. The goal of this class is to provide a space for students to create and develop their own work through a relaxed and comfortable environment.

**If you are a beginner interested in the class, materials can be provided to help catch you up to speed. However, please keep in mind that this class will be primarily taught at an intermediate level.

Sunday sessions of this program will meet at “Park on Main” in downtown Belfast. This small park is located on Main Street, across from Dockside Restaurant. The group will gather outside in the park for discussion, and then disperse throughout Heritage Park along the waterfront, to take photographs. Public bathrooms are located near this location. Wear walking shoes and a mask; bring drinking water. Masks are required during instruction and social distancing will be maintained throughout the program.


Matthias Mann is a photographer and writer whose work has been continually inspired by the beauty of rural New England. Growing up in Maine, a love of exploration has featured prominently in his practice, with much of his work drawing off of the natural beauty of small, overlooked scenes. Through this, his work often dwells in the slow, meditative process that his work takes on, with many of his images featuring a quiet perspective bordering on minimalism. As an artist, Matthias has exhibited his work in galleries across New England, with much of his fine-art practice focusing on the construction of narrative within images.
