Through a New Lens: The Transformative Power of Photography with Else Kramer

Workshops.Work · February 21, 2024

About Track

Say cheese, dear listeners! This week, Else Kramer joins me to discuss the creative and connective power of photography in a facilitation context.

Through the camera lens, we can see our environment and problems in new ways — and, as a result, can find new solutions. And the really magical thing? Photography isn’t an individualistic activity; when shared as part of a group it can be connective and attuning.

There is a huge amount to learn about the specifics of photography and the broader picture of facilitation in this episode. Enjoy!

Find out about:

  • How to enhance any workshop with photography and specific advice for photography work
  • Why photography is an open door to vulnerability, connection, and progress
  • How a daily photo sharing practice can transform a group and the individuals within it
  • Why simplifying a concept isn’t about ‘dumbing down’, but making it easier for participants to invest their energy in a topic
  • How facilitation skills flow naturally into coaching, especially in creative pursuits
  • Why ‘fun’ workshop design helps the group… and why it will eventually prevent real progress
