Storytelling for Photographers

Updated: Dec 21, 2022

Thursday 27th October 2022

Tonight, members were treated to a zoom session all the way via Mexico.

Great storytelling can help your audience connect emotionally with your images. But understanding how to weave a narrative into your photography can be confusing. How can one photo tell a whole story, with a beginning, middle, and end?

JP Stones has spent the last 5 years photographing the same group of Mexica, or Aztec, dancers. In that time, he learned how connected the Mexica are to their mythology. To stories passed down across generations. That’s when he decided that, as these stories were so vital to Mexica culture, they needed to play a bigger role in his portraits.

Comments from members after the event included

"JP is an inspirational young man! Fabulous. I loved the sharing of a creative process and what wonderfully powerful images".

"I really enjoyed it, certainly will be looking at how to tell stories"

"I thought he was great, so engaging". " I thought he was great, loved his photos".

There was certainly a lot to think about tonight, JP opened new levels of creative thought process for several members. We will be incorporating the ideas shared and learned in future workshop sessions.
