What it's all About
Education is a cornerstone of who Story Gorge is. We are committed to taking our years of professional field experience and passing on as much knowledge as possible. Join us in our state of the art education facility in Hood River, Oregon or we can bring our mobile classroom to you! We pair experiential education and service learning with exciting outings to the field. Our classes, workshops and residencies are uniquely formulated to accommodate every learning style and any skill level.
Story Gorge is proud to have the facility and ability to train the public in a variety of media creation skills. Our passion for imaging and storytelling shines through in our teaching style and focused offerings. From camera skills to computer skills, we will give you the tools to take your visual storytelling to the next level!
During the summer months, Story Gorge employs past students to teach the next generation of storytellers. We offer summer camps in LEGO Stop Motion, Movie Trailers, and Photo Tips & Tricks to 8-14 year olds. Registration for Summer 2020 opens March 3rd!
Create sustainable, energetic community around your purpose by giving your team the skills they need to be effective storytellers in the field!
Every day your team is presented with opportunities to capture and share the work you are doing in the world. It can be difficult to recognize, capture, shape, and share these stories from the field. Story Gorge is excited to offer workshops to share the skills we have learned and tested in the field to help our clients share their values, mission, and stories.
We spend a lot of time in schools. Together with our partner Arts in Education of The Gorge, we integrate into classrooms and work with students and teachers to bring visual storytelling into their curriculums. Through our customizable education systems, we are able to teach every level of S.T.E.M. while making sure that Art is included in all that we do. Let us show you haw Story Gorge can enhance your students' learning environments!
"My family and I spent an excellent evening with Story Gorge. In an era of image overload it was refreshing and heartening to hear about composition, the rule of thirds, leading lines, and a photographer's core understanding of aperture and shutter speed. Sean's knowledge, depth, experience, and appreciation for his craft were contagious."
— Nick Southall, Waterfall Photography Workshop
“I am trying to advance from being a “point and shoot” photographer to one who intentionally captures visually compelling images. Before the weekend I spent in the field with Sean, my knowledge could best be described as “Swiss cheese.” Sean was able to help me fill in the holes so I came away with a solid foundation from which to build. I’m so inspired!”
