I recently started a new job at a middle school (which I already regret, but that’s another story), where I teach a couple of students interested in photography. It happens that both of them have a natural gift for composing shots. I wrote these eleven worksheets on famous photographers for English and study skills instruction for these kids.
These documents are simple research templates to be used with the internet. I suspect I will never use these again, but I also suspect that someone, somewhere, might also get some use out of them. Most of the major American photographers are represented, and I did the best I could to distribute evenly between men and women. You’ll find a worksheet on the legendary Robert Capa, as well as Vivian Maier, the subject of a fascinating documentary which I have watched four times because I can’t get over the richness of Ms. Maier’s story.
If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
