Photography Club Presents ‘Storytelling for Photographers’

Mark Guinn, President

The SaddleBrooke Photography Club invites all SaddleBrooke photographers to join us on Oct. 21 at 1 p.m. in the Catalina Room (next door to the Mesquite Grill in SaddleBrooke TWO) for a 90-minute Zoom presentation by JP Stones, who will discuss his technique for turning one photograph into a whole story with a beginning, middle, and end. See Stones’ website to learn more:

“Working with narratives won’t just change the way people engage with your photos, it will fundamentally change the way you create them,” JP explained. “That narrative can also be used to guide decisions on posing, composition, lighting, and color, thereby ensuring that your creative decisions are focused to create a cohesive body of work.”

JP has presented for professional organizations and camera clubs across the U.S., Mexico, and the UK. His work has been featured on the cover of multiple publications, including Good Light magazine. He’s been teaching his Photo Workshops for close to 10 years.

Reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis through Friday, Oct. 14, or until we reach maximum seating capacity. Please text Helen Avery at 760-371-5575 to RSVP by leaving your name and the number of seats requested.

Stones has spent the last five years photographing the same group of Mexica, or Aztec, dancers, and in that time, he learned how connected the Mexica are to their mythology through the stories passed down across generations.
