Picture Nature is a BRAND NEW addition to The Picture Series from Tracey Clark. All new creative photo prompts plus fun, engaging bonus content will help you to look at the beauty and wonder of nature in a whole new light. Both poetic and playful, Tracey shares pictures and photo prompts that will encourage participants in an engaging, accessible photo practice focused on the great outdoors and the many gifts that nature has to offer.

As the seasons transition, things around us (and within us) shift and change which makes it the perfect time to quite literally focus on the magic and mystery of nature's beauty, all the while, shooting from the heart.

Here's what to look forward to:

6 weeks to ponder, play, and appreciate nature together, cameras in hand (10/1/19-11/9/19)

40 inspiring nature-based photo prompts (1 per day via email & accessible online),

The downloadable Picture Nature eBook (including images, inspiring quotes & all 40 prompts)

Bonus: A downloadable printable deck of 60 Picture Nature Discovery Cards (think photo-scavenger hunt that can be incorporated into your Picture Nature photography)

Bonus: Access to 6 videos selected from Tracey's soon-coming Photo Techniques class (these can be used to further guide, challenge and inform your Picture Nature photography)

Discover how bringing a daily photography practice together with the refreshing and restorative power of nature can inspire a new perspective and nourish your creative spirit. Join us as we Picture Nature!

Frequently Asked Questions

When does Picture Nature begin and end?
It begins on Tuesday, 10/1/19 and ends on Saturday, 11/9/19. During this 6 week window, the project can be enjoyed in a shared, classroom-style experience and also via daily prompt emails. But keep in mind, you will have access to the content of Picture Nature for as long as you'd like, following the end date. This allows you the freedom to continue to participate and/or revisit the content in a self-paced capacity once the initial 6 weeks are over.
Is Picture Nature a guided project or is it self-paced?
That's up to you! For the first 6 weeks (10/1/19-11/9/19) Picture Nature will be guided by Tracey (in an online portal/classroom and via daily emails) and is designed to be shared with the community of students enrolled in the project. You are encouraged to participate daily but you can also just use the prompts on your own, at your own pace. The choice is yours. Also note that after 6 weeks, the content will still be accessible in a self-paced capacity. If you are only looking for the prompts in an eBook style with no access to the classroom, daily emails, or bonus content, consider just the a la carte Picture Nature eBook, also available from The Picture Series homepage.
Is the content of Picture Nature new?
YES! 40 brand new photo prompts (in Tracey's signature style) plus some brand new video content being previewed in Picture Nature that will be available in a soon-coming course. And a few other bonuses too. Hooray for NEW stuff!
What kind of camera should I use?
Whatever camera you've got (including your phone)! Any and every camera is welcome in the Picture Series. The whole idea is to get inspired to shoot with whatever camera is making you happy these days and above all else, to enjoy yourself.
Is this a photography class?
Picture Nature is a photography project but it's not a photography class. The Picture Series (Picture Nature included) is a series of themed photo centric prompts to encourage and inspire a consistent photography practice and in turn, a way to see (and picture) your everyday life in a whole new light. While you'll be using your camera (any camera!) as a creative tool for the prompts, technical photography lessons are not a part of the project.
Are refunds available if I'm not enjoying the project?
Yes. If for any reason you aren't enjoying the project, you may request a full refund.
What if I have technical difficulties?
If you are having any tech or admin issues, you can search the Teachable Knowledge Base, contact Teachable directly or email Tracey at [email protected]
Do I have to be "outdoorsy" to participate in this class?
The beauty of nature is that it can be found as close as your kitchen window sill (think potted plants) or as far as the peak of Mount Everest (and EVERYWHERE in between). The prompts can be translated in any way that works for you and your daily comings and goings. You're encouraged to spend extra time outdoors if you are so inspired by the prompts (wandering, observing, exploring, discovering) because a little fresh air is good for the body and the soul! But it's entirely up to you.
