This online course is designed to build knowledge of general photography concepts gradually in a way that doesn’t overwhelm. To give people new skills to take their photography to higher levels by giving them more control of their photography and the results they get. To make purposeful decisions and photos rather than letting the camera dictate. To help remove the fear of that little green square! All of this will be done in a collaborative, non-judgmental, and encouraging environment keeping in mind that photography is supposed to be fun first.  Over four weeks, we’ll look at:

  • Student objectives & The Exposure Triangle
  • Learning principles of composition
  • Understanding the differences between RAW & JPEG files
  • Intro to editing applications such as applications like Adobe Lightroom and mobile apps like Snapseed will be used for demonstration. 

Class structure will follow 2-2.5 hrs via Zoom w/ 5-10 min halfway break. ‘Homework’ assignment to be completed for the following week.

Instructor Bio

At his core, Fisher is a storyteller. Whether it is through a single image, a series of images, or his documentary films, Fisher wants to tell stories that, he hopes, will engage the viewer.

In his client work as an architecture and infrastructure photographer, his job is to tell the stories of his client’s projects. His personal photography is primarily street photography and Fisher tries to show the interest in the mundane of every day. Sometimes there will be humor. Sometimes the subject matter will be very serious.

Sometimes a photo will piss people off. Other times a picture will bring back a memory. In all these cases an emotion will be evoked in the viewer. That is the key. Fisher’s objective is to try to make photos that matter. Try being the keyword.

Since his move to New Brunswick in 2020 and discovering the beautiful Kingsbrae Gardens in Saint Andrews, he has also got back to his first love in photography – photo-impressionism.

Fisher is an award-winning photographer and documentary filmmaker. He has exhibited in numerous solo and group shows and has been a CONTACT exhibitor. He is also the author of four books on photography, three through publishing houses and one self-published.
