A unique school for the whole photographer.
Who We Are
The creative journey has never been cookie cutter. It has never been straight and narrow. It will never be one size fits all. It is unique and scary and naked and you will, if you are brave enough, take the path less traveled. And we promise it will make all the difference in the world. It is Robert Frost and Sylvia Plath and Sally Mann and Jill Greenberg. It is raw and honest and minimalist and bare boned. It is more than just the clicking of a shutter or the writing of the pen. It is your soul, being honest with who you are and what you stand for. We are here. This is the new wave of education. Wherever you are on your creative journey, this is your rebirth. This is your chance. This is your now.
Unraveled is an unconventional, unique school for whole photographer offering monthly and annual subscriptions, in which a monthly guest instructor will be sharing their creative journey and teaching specific topics.
In addition to our school, Unraveled founders Coleen Hodges and Sarah Driscoll teach an exclusive, quarterly, three-week workshop that offers a personal online experience where you foster all aspects of your creative life. Throughout the duration of the workshop, Coleen and Sarah will walk with you hand in hand to help you evolve your voice, find balance, and effectively live the creative life of your dreams. Our goal is to bring the powerful energy of an in-person workshop right into the heart of this online experience, leaving you feeling connected and inspired. Unraveled welcomes all artists, regardless of skill level.
"With so many photography education options currently available it takes something really special to stand-out. What Sarah and Coleen, along with all the contributing artists, have created is absolutely incredible. For a minimal monthly fee you have access to a plethora of courses from some of the most impressive photographers and artists in today's community. Courses range from quick mini lessons, which are great when you have a just a moment to yourself to be inspired, as well as extensive courses that truly help you grow and evolve as an artist. I have spent quite a bit of money on education courses and to date Be Unraveled is one of my favorites. I love when new courses come available and am always blown away but the tips and tricks shared. Thank you Sarah and Coleen for giving life to such an awesome vision."

Lindsay Colleen Saunders: Old World Art Techniques in Photography
Lindsay will be focusing her lesson on “old world” art techniques that translate from her painting and drawing into photography. Since there are so many different “rules” and techniques to art, she will be honing in primarily on chiaroscuro techniques in photography. In her tutorial, Lindsay will explain, in depth, why chiaroscuro techniques that Rembrandt and De La Tour used, work so well in photography, and how to achieve the look while in both a candid and created setting.

Adri De La Cruz: Finding Connection Between Light and Shadows

Kevin Lowery: Intimate Male Portraiture
When Kevin Lowery started shooting intimate male portraiture, he quickly realized the difficulties of photographing men; we live in a culture that rewards men for being closely guarded and for putting up hyper-masculine facades. For many guys, it’s difficult to be vulnerable. For the photographer, the real challenge is going beyond the posing to really capture who they are - their personality, their hopes and dreams, their passions, and their fears. In this class, you’ll follow Kevin through the journey he takes in every session to find vulnerability in each photo and to truly capture each male subject for who they truly are. Along the way, you’ll also cover lighting, posing, and how to continue breaking boundaries in intimate male portraiture.
