How to be Creative - Creativity Live 12

Event info

Feel like you’re not very creative or struggling to come up with ideas?

Want to unlock your creative self, so you get out of that rut - and be more original with your work? 

In this 2 hour workshop, we’ll show you techniques professionals use to generate ideas, show you a way of (quickly) accessing your creativity, plus get a toolkit of techniques to permanently build up your creative ability - so your work has more impact.

Everybody has the power of creativity, you just need to know how and where to access it. 

This workshop is for you if:
You feel like you’re not very creative, and need to learn ways of accessing it.

What will you learn?

Why creativity is essential in making great images (and how to tell the difference between those that have it, and don’t)

How to access your creative ability and build it up so ideas come to you much easier than before.

Live demonstration of a technique called Visualisation, plus access to a free online tool to record your ideas.

Insight on how professionals use ideas and transform them into great photographs.


What is Creativity Live?

Creativity Live is a series of workshops designed for those without a formal education in photography. Heavily visual, with plenty of examples, we take a show-not-tell approach to teaching, guiding you step-by-step through the more creative elements of photography; so you understand how to make your work stand out, see behind the scenes how the best images are made, and build your confidence - and ability - to take your photography forwards.
