The Created Image 2014


The Created Image conference went so well last year, we’re doing it again, and there’s room – after pre-sales to those who asked to be notified first – for about 10 more people.

These two intense days will change the way you make photographs. I’ve invited two close friends: National Geographic photographer and the only human being on the planet to be officially designated my Evil Twin, Ami Vitale will be speaking about the power of photography and visual story-telling and will kick off the conference with a keynote address before we all meet and greet over wine and cheese on Thursday evening, July 09. Piet van Den Eynde is coming from Belgium to lead 4 sessions about post-production, and I’ll be taking the other 4 sessions. Full curriculum descriptions can be found on the event page.

It’s going to be a small, intimate setting, with lots of chances to spend time with Ami, Piet, and I, and Vancouver’s a beautiful city so there’s plenty to explore in the early mornings and evenings with your camera. If you’re not looking to learn how to use the buttons and dials on your camera, but want to work on the stuff that makes us all the photographers we are, this is going to be an amazing couple of days. We’d love to see you here.

If you act before April 15, you can still get in on the Early Bird discount pricing, which will save you $100.

For more information on the Created Image 2014, or to register, visit the event page.

Anticipating the questions, yes, last year we filmed the presentations and we intend to do the same this year, to make at least some of the content available to those who can’t come, but there are no guarantees. Good chance you’ll be able to buy some of the sessions as downloadable content from Craft & Vision, but don’t let that stop you from coming.

The Created Image 2014

This July we’re inviting you back to Vancouver for The Created Image. It’s an intense workshop about the art of photography and the journey of craftsmanship that gets us there. And this year I’ve invited friends. Ami Vitale is, among other things, a National Geographic photographer and amazing human being, and she’ll be giving the […]

2013 Retrospective

Kenya, January 2013. It’s the nature of time to go too quickly. Maybe that’s one of the reasons photography works so well for me: in making time one of our raw materials we pay more attention to it, honouring it down to thousandths of a second, more present, more perceptive. I wish paying more attention […]
