High impact photography instructor

High impact photography is about “documenting what others can’t see.” That is the passion behind the career of independent video producer and photojournalist, Sonya Doctorian.

For over 25 years, Sonya has helped capture the spirit of communities, from the gravity of war zones to the heart of presidential campaigns. She has worked as a photo director in newsrooms across the nation; including, The Washington Post, The Tampa Bay Times, and The Knoxville News-Sentinel before landing in Colorado in 2014. Now, Sonya’s eye for detail and storytelling serve as the foundation for a photography class unlike you’ve ever attended.

In her greatly anticipated high impact photography course, Sonya demonstrates the keys to visual communication and breaks down what makes a strong photo. She gives tips for taking photos “in the field” and shows how to get in close and frame the perfect shot. “It’s not about the camera, it’s about seeing,” explains Sonya. Students will learn how to create photographs that tell the story of a moment and family photos that not only convey the personalities of their loved ones but also capture the essence of unforgettable memories.
