The course includes information on the history of fine art photography and its pioneers as well as the works of contemporary fine art photographers. Through guest speakers, you'll learn how successful local final art photographers have developed their artistic style. You'll also learn how to get your work displayed at galleries and art guilds, prepare your photos for galleries and artistic competitions, develop your ability to market and see fine art photography, and how to create and manage a faithful following. As a bonus, you'll have the option to receive a one-on-one review and critique of your photography.
