“Show me the truth, so I can find my story in your photos”.
Do you ever ask yourself why most families’ photographs reflect only beautiful, joyful, or funny moments? Do you find yourself wanting to photograph the other facets of life that do not fit into a neatly curated box, but were too afraid to do it or ashamed to share it? What if there was a way to document all the moments and details that life has to offer, but in an unapologetic way with your own photographic voice, and make photos that allow others to find comfort and self-acceptance by sharing them? This Breakout takes you on an introspective journey, exploring life and reality. It will empower you to confront fears that prevent photographs from being taken. Using a documentary approach, it gives you the practical tools to make photographs that embrace both your reality and that of your clients’ multi-dimensional lives.

about your presenter
Felicia Chang is a documentary family photographer and Click Photo School instructor who believes everyone’s version of reality is camera-worthy. Connections are important, normal is relative, and crustier versions of life definitely deserve visual space in family photos. She lives in beautiful and wet North Vancouver, Canada, in a creaky 104-yr old house with two of the best girls who make Motherhood a challenge, a husband who argues and supports equally, and a Schnoodle dog that licks his bum more than she would like. When not working, she spends her kid-free time drinking copious amounts of hipster coffee, running in the trails with her dog, and spending way too much time on social media meme-ing with her favourite people.
