You can purchase this independent study course at any time. You’ll receive one 190 page PDF broken into four weeks, or sections, of materials. You can work through it all at once like an ebook, or use the sections to self-guide yourself through a slower, four week independent course.

If you’d like my support during your independent study, please purchase the option that comes with one on one mentoring.

WEEK ONE: SUBJECT

You’ll learn how to manipulate the elements within a frame to enhance voice. We are going to discuss what “voice” and “vision” are, and go over 6 photographic devices that you can intentionally manipulate to strengthen communication.

WEEK TWO: CHOICE

You’ll learn how to make conscious photographic choices to enhance voice. We are going to discuss 6 photographic devices, plus exposure choices, that you can manipulate through in-camera and shooting choices to support your voice.

WEEK THREE: INTENT

You’ll gain an understanding of the forms of intent, and you’ll explore your own path as an artist. We’ll take a look at how you tend to naturally fall on the sides of intent. We are also going to have some soul searching discussions about your identity and the direction you want to go.

WEEK FOUR: EXPRESSION

You’ll learn to make deliberate decisions to enhance your natural voice tendencies. We’ll discuss the process of expression, and how to say what it is you want to say. We’ll also lay the groundwork for a personal project you’ll complete on your own after the class ends.

    Kate is an inspiring instructor who not only shares her knowledge with you but pushes you and asks insightful questions.

    She is very open about her own journey and I came away from this workshop with more confidence and a better understanding of myself and my journey and some exciting new ideas for the future. I can’t say I have had many a-ha moments in my life but I had a couple in this workshop.

    I highly recommend this course to other photographers searching to find or refine their voice.

    V&VI was a workshop that blew me away! The pdfs provided were jam packed with tons of information. I loved learning about how to use the devices she mentioned to make your voice stronger. Kate’s CC was so in depth and intensive. Her perception of the images I was creating showed me things I was doing repeatedly with my work that I wasn’t even aware of. After taking her class, I have a new confidence with myself and my images.

    Kate is an amazing teacher! Her materials are detailed, in depth, and easy to follow. However, it is her CC that is invaluable. She takes such time to review and study our work and takes that knowledge specific to each individual and pushes us even further. It is a lot of work but it is the kind of work that is so rewarding at the end of this class. Voice and Visual Intent has really given me the tangible comprehension of what my vision and voice look like and what how to express it. It has helped me to understand what I’m trying to say with my images and provided me with the tools to convey the message(s). Anyone who is trying to understand their own work and how to enhance their voice should take this class!

    This class was phenomenal, I really found the topics to be very interesting and so helpful in helping me tell my story better when making an image. Kate has incredible gift to see/read images and her critiques are invaluable. She pushed us when we needed pushing and supported us along the way. I’ve taken a lot (A LOT) of workshops this year and I honestly think this has been the best one and one I highly recommend everyone take it!

    Kate has a way of helping you follow the road to defining your own voice and style. To realizing this is your art, your work, and your journey, and she gives you the tools to help travel that along road a little more easily.

    Kate, your workshop was an amazing experience! I was blown away by your teaching methods, guidance, and insight. You expressed such care toward everyone in the workshop and their experience with the new materials and learning engagement. Your course e-materials were well thought out and packed full of information. With each new week, I found the PDFs extremely resourceful and provided me with guidance for the daily and weekly assignments. You have given me a “tool-belt” to wear now and long after this workshop, and the knowledge to use these tools and devices in a way that help me express and strengthen my photographic voice and vision. I truly thank you Kate for hard work, dedication, and your awesome feedback! You are a true inspiration!!

    If you are even thinking about taking this class – just do it! It is an intense four weeks, I won’t lie but it will change the way you shoot. Kate is an amazing teacher. Her feedback and encouragement are invaluable.

    The PDFs was different from any other class I’ve taken, it was filled with a lot of examples and Kate really pours her heart into the class. She’s really amazing about pinpointing your strengths and giving you a creative push to “see” more. She really makes you think about what, how and why you shoot.

    The class Kate has created is nothing short of amazing. I came out of this class having a solid understanding of my own voice, which I had never even considered prior. I also now have several tools and devices at my disposal to cultivate that voice, to execute my vision, and to create more powerful and meaningful images. Kate pushes you in the best way possible – she really wants you to learn more about yourself, and isn’t going to let you off easy. At the same time, she’s your biggest cheerleader! It’s one of those classes that you never want to end. Ever.

  9. Lucy B.

    This workshop absolutely blew me away. As an admitted workshop junkie, it’s rare that I come across information that is 100% completely new, but this workshop really surprised me! I was amazed at how helpful the content was, especially in Week 3! Kate has such an easy, organized teaching style that helps things really make sense in such a clear way. This workshop helped me to finally recognize the strengths that I intuitively believed were there, but now I can actually identify them and explain WHY I shoot the way I do. Such an empowering workshop!! Shooting with intention has become so much easier now that I understand my voice so much better.
