Photography, Memory, and Nature at the Botanic Gardens



Program Description

Event Details

Do you want to learn how to use your cellphone camera to express yourself through beautiful photos? In this class, we will explore the connections between personal history and nature -- all through photos that we will take with our cellphones.

This class will take place at the Denver Botanic Gardens, and you will learn alongside photography students from the University of Denver. Your teacher will be Professor Roddy MacInnes, a professional photographer who studies the intersection of photography and personal history and sense of self.

This class will take place over three Fridays in October from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.:

  • Friday, October 8: Introductions, history of the gardens, cellphone camera basics
  • Friday, October 15: Exploration of the gardens, photo taking, image selection
  • Friday, October 22: Portrait taking of the students and their chosen photos
