FRIDAY 9:15-10:30 AM
In her opening keynote address, Joy will explore ways in which photography can be a powerful tool of healing. Discover means of finding beauty in the darkness, both in ourselves through the act of self-portraiture, and for our clients as we join alongside them in the grieving process. Learn how to pay attention and be ready for highly emotional photographic moments as well as the gracious balance of being both present and intentional as the photographer while also not influencing the moment observed. The world desperately needs your unique perspective and artistry; Joy is ready to tell you why YOU and YOUR work are so, so vital.
