Effective presentation of images in portfolios, exhibitions and books requires careful arrangement of the images in related sequences that constitute aesthetic or dramatic units.

In this workshop you will learn how to analyse and select images from your corpus of photographic work in order to arrange them in sequences that augment the meaning of the individual images and create dramatic effect. Concepts of layout and presentation will also be discussed as tools to effectively communicate your personal vision.

In order to explore concepts of sequencing, you will produce a printed maquette for a portfolio, an exhibition, a book or a catalogue. You will also produce digital maquette that will be projected for group discussion and appreciation.


You are expected to have mastered the basic craft of photography, have a working knowledge and experience with computers and Photoshop or other image editing software. You must have at your disposition a suitable computer and a printer, in order to print small draft prints of your images for creation of the printed maquette. Demo software for image editing and production of the digital maquette will be provided where required. If you wish to use conventional photographs, they must be scanned into a digital format.

Workshop Outline

This workshop is usually presented in 8 three-hour sessions.
