“What I've loved about Tracey's classes is that she has a beautiful way of inviting us to notice the beauty around us in ways we've taken for granted before. Opening our eyes in that way is so lovely and so important, not only for photographers and writers, but for me as a person wanting to more fully appreciate my life."

Frequently Asked Questions

When does Picture Summer Fun begin and end?
It begins on Monday, 6/21/21 and ends on Wednesday, 7/21/21. During this 4 week window, the project can be enjoyed via daily prompt emails and/or in a shared, classroom-style experience. You will have access to the content of Picture Summer Fun 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 4 weeks are over.
Is Picture Summer Fun a guided project or is it self-paced?
That's up to you! For the first 4 weeks (6/21/21-7/21/21) Picture Summer Fun 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 4 weeks, the content will still be accessible in a self-paced capacity.
Is the content of Picture Summer Fun new?
Picture Summer Fun is a refreshed, updated offering based on the original Picture Summer prompts from many years ago. 20 prompts from the original offering, and 11 new prompts including photocentric projects to encourage and engage your carefree creative spirit!
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. The photo-editing tutorial videos will be demonstrating different photo editing apps via my iPhone.
Is this a photography class?
Picture Summer Fun is a photography project but it's not a photography class. The Picture Series (Picture Summer Fun 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]

And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer."
