Evolution Of A Project in 8 Clear Steps

Morning guys :) I was thinking, a good place to start our journey might be talking about organization of the photo project in general. Like this we can dive into any particular part of the process in discussion.

For those of you who would like to binge-read a whole thing, here it is. Don’t forget to send me any questions/comments (aliona.kuz@gmail.com) and we will be discussing stuff more in depth here starting on Monday.

Intro: One of the questions that I get a lot from new photographers during masterclasses is about organizing a project from the beginning to the end. Today I will try to describe the framework for mid-size editorial project. The framework reflects my own experience and is not the only possible solution. Also for the projects that last longer and develop the theme gradually over the years the framework will be more complicated.
