Big Picture offers a "boutique" learning experience for no more than 7 students per class. It is part art school/part camp. Our home base is the Big Picture teaching space near the Franklin Park Zoo, where we conduct lessons, review work and edit our projects. About 2/3rds of the class takes place "on the go" shooting and filming around the Boston area in fun locations like the North End, Castle Island, Newbury Street,Chinatown and more.
Photography workshops provide each student with their own professional digital SLR camera. Film workshops are collaborative efforts, where the students together write, shoot, act and edit their own short film.
