Description

So, let’s have the hard talks. The potentially uncomfortable talks. But the ones that grow us not only as a person but as professional documentarians and storytellers.

Diversity is a huge word with so many meanings, but building a diverse portfolio is one huge branch of that. When potential clients come to us, they are looking to see their families reflected in our work. On a heart level, They are looking to work with people who understand their culture, and their backgrounds. On a technical level they are looking to work with an artist that they feel confident knows how to honor and edit their unique skin tones.

This class will aim to help you make sure that everyone has a seat at your table.
That everyone sees themselves reflected in your work.

Building a diverse portfolio begins first with being intentional about diversity in your day to day life. This class will give you ideas on how to make sure that you are pulling in an array of people into your circle, making portfolio diversity a natural extension.
