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.

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.
I have always been drawn to documentary photography and this breakout is so inspiring. I am only half way through the materials and have already learned so many things about documentary photography that I didn’t know and am already being pushed creatively. Felicia is not only an amazing photographer but she is extremely helpful and I have found her feedback very helpful. I was worried that I would suffer because I hadn’t taken The Documentary Approach yet but I am not at all! This breakout stands on it’s own and it is already my favorite breakout I’ve taken yet.

Felicia is great! The first video alone made a huge impression on me just by seeing how great she interacts with the family. The PDF also has a lot of great info, very clear and well written. Love it! Raluca Chase on 13th Dec 2017
Not only does Felicia go over the fundamentals of shooting with the documentary approach, she also shares insight on how she grew her documentary photography business over the years. But most importantly, she helps us to see how crucial it is to document and share ALL facets of life, not just the happy and beautiful ones, so that others may see themselves reflected in the not so perfectly curated moments of life, too. Loved this breakout so much. Julie Row on 13th Dec 2017
