Brooke Shaden Workshop


Wednesday, August 17th

2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Storytelling & Conceptual Imagery

This workshop will be a very hands-on approach to storytelling, proving that story is engrained in everything we do – especially creating imagery! The concept will be put at the forefront of our creation process as we learn shooting techniques to bring stories to life and editing techniques to further pass on the message you want to send.

Brooke Shaden was born in March of 1987 in Lancaster, PA, USA. She grew up near the “Amish Country“ until attending Temple University. Brooke was photographically born in December 2008 after graduating from Temple with bachelor degrees in film and English.

She began creating self-portraits for ease and to have full control over the images, and has since grown into a self-portrait fine art photographer. Self portraiture for her is not autobiographical in nature. Instead, she places herself within environments she wishes to explore, where secrets are exposed, impossibilities are tested, and life is questioned in eras beyond our own.

Brooke works to capture fantastic realities within her photographic frame. By using painterly techniques as well as the square format, traditional photographic properties are replaced by otherworldly elements.
