Students with any level of camera proficiency are welcome.

SHOOT & REVIEW  /  Photo workshop  (S&R will be changed  to an online format for safety)

Organized independently by Nancy once or twice a year. Please inquire or sign up for newsletters.

Photo walks or themes and  (virtual) group reviews — get feedback, have fun & see the variety of ways others handled the same photo ops.

Arranged and lead by Nancy, S&R consists of 6 meetings. Three meetings are (solo) SHOOTING excursions & 3 are (virtual) REVIEW meetings.  In non-pandemic times excursions are to various interesting locations and participants explore in groups or with me.

REVIEWS give everyone a chance to show photos, discuss experiences, get supportive feedback. It's friendly, informal, & fun. Great to gain confidence with "street photography" and enjoy a common interest with other photographers! SHOOTS usually on Sunday afternoons. REVIEWS are on weekday evenings.Join mailing list to be notified when I plan the next S&R

I'm open to any photo class ideas and I'm available if you have a group wanting your own class.


COLLABORATIVE VISUAL STORYTELLING/A GROUP PHOTO PROJECT •To be rescheduled & offered online if possible.

Students work on the same project to create a photographic essay on Boyle Heights, a historic community of Los Angeles. The workshop Collaborative Visual Storytelling centers on documenting the neighborhood that in the first part of the 20th century included a vibrant Jewish community, and is today a vibrant Latino community. The plan for taking the photos will be revised ensure a safe distance. We'll learn how the community has been transformed over time, and how we can use photographs to share that story. We'll also review photos and sequence them to create a collaborative photo essay.  Our work will culminate as an exhibition in an online photo gallery on the American Jewish University website.
