Focus: Photography Forum

Workshop Description

Focus: Phtotography Forum from Ghost Town Arts on Vimeo.

These days we are bombarded with images, and with the advent of social media platforms like Instagram and others, not being a photographer means you are missing out! But have you ever wanted to receive more meaningful feedback on your images, deepen your photographic prowess, refine your eye and take your work to the next level? If so, this workshop is for you! Jared Tredway is facilitating a weekly pin-up session and conversation to help us accomplish more inspiration and focus before we hit the shutter button. Through conversations about composition, color, formatting, technique, presentation platform and more, participants will develop their intuitive ability to see and capture images that captivate, regardless of skill level or what camera we’re using.

About the Instructor

Coming soon.

Jared Tredway grew up in Windom, Texas, a small town about 80 miles northeast of Dallas. His childhood was spent carving tunnels in maize fields, drawing whimsical castles, putting on productions for his school class, and building Lego cities and stick forts in the forest. In grade school he explored music, art, and theater as well as writing and literature. At Texas A&M University he majored in architecture and studied photography with Susan Kirchman.

After completing his formal education, Jared returned to north Texas and joined David Baca Studio (an architecture firm) as a project manager and interior design director. He has been humbled and honored to perform with the Sherman Symphony Orchestra and the Sherman Community Players, and proud to have served on the board of DSP&R (Downtown Sherman Now!) during the development and implementation of the streetscape enhancement project and revitalization efforts. Jared also served as the chair of the North Texas Young Professionals, and initiated its Pillars Forum, a celebration of influential community leaders.

In 2014, Jared began studying acting with Theresa Bell in Dallas, and signed with Damaris Grogan at the Clutts Agency. The following year, Jared participated in Theresa Bell’s short film production “Lullaby,” after which he was inspired to write and produce his own short entitled “Receptivity.” In the fall of 2015 Jared moved to Los Angeles, joining the architecture firm Uberion while continuing his acting studies with Lesly Kahn and Scott Barnes and Matt Snyder at Studio Four.

During this time Jared maintained his presence in North Texas, and in 2016 he founded the Tredway Workshop, a multidisciplinary design build firm focused on modernist residences and boutique commercial projects. He joined the Ghost Town Arts Collective in 2019 and he is excited to be a part of its growth.
