‘The Master Guide to Creating Project and Photo-Haiku’ Photography’

‘The Master Guide to Creating Project and Photo-Haiku’ Photography’
The Art of Seeing

Photo-Haiku, is a photographic approach that Stewart employs to help workshop attendees see in a different way, and create more powerful images. Past attendees report they have found the approach enjoyable and often return for more. During the workshop each attendee is given a copy Stewart’s publication that helps develop skills. It is called ‘The Master Guide to Creating Project and Photo-Haiku’ Photography’
and their is space to make notes throughout the workshop. The guide is kept by the attendees so they refer to it afterwards.

The Project Photo-book

After the event, all attendees will also be invited to have images in the Ginko Photobook from the workshop and will receive a complimentary copy in the post once it is created. These books are a marvellous momento of the workshop day, and prove a great learning aid as you will be able to see what your peers created on the same day of the same thing as yourself.
