For the Curious Soul, the world is our school, life offers lessons, and beauty is our guide. Take your photos from like to LOVE. Discover the beauty of Boston, New England and the World with us.
We think it should be fun and easy to take your photos from like to LOVE. With that goal in mind, we offer a range of non technical programs for beginner and intermediate photographers like you to help you create better pictures. Four hour classes, one day workshop, and weekend retreats are just a sample of what we offer. The programs are face to face in New England but also in Asia and Europe and other US locations. The Curious Soul Photo School is based in Boston at the Boston Center for the Arts in the South End. We go on fabulous field trips every month so check the schedule for upcoming events.
But this is only part of the story. We see photography as a path to creative self discovery that reconnects us to the beauty and joy of life. The Curious Soul Photo School is founded on the philosophy that BEAUTY MATTERS. That experiencing and photographing the beauty of life is good for our health and well being. It reduces stress, increases engagement, and basically makes us feel more alive to create something of beauty though images. We have discovered this has little to do with fancy cameras or technical skills, and every thing to do with creativity, design, and mindfulness. It is a way of being.
If you are ready to learn how to take better photos, but you don't want to get bogged down with all the technical stuff, then you're going to love our approach. Explore the website, read about the unique approach called Flow-tography, and if you feel it is right for you, join us.
