You will learn photography and filmmaking technique, aesthetics principles and applications, and visual storytelling from an award winning master professor, photographer and filmmaker in the field. The stories you create will focus on experiences during your time in London, those of distinguished US expats living in London, and those of guest presenters including distinguished British photographers and filmmakers.
