Get a deep introduction to AI as it relates to photography in this three-part Mini-workshopregister for all three or just take an individual section.

In Part 1, we’ll explore the technical and historical foundations of AI in photography by unraveling the algorithms, tracing its evolution, and learning how it got to where it is today.

Many of us have been hearing about Artificial Intelligence and what its use might mean — whether it’s simply a plagiarism machine, or a miracle for mankind, the end of human life, or something in between. Through this series of three Mini-workshops you’ll gain a better understanding of AI’s impact on photography and our creativity, and engage in lively discussion on its role in the future of artistic expression. Also in this series: Part 2: Practical Applications and Part 3: Implications and What Lies Ahead.

Mini-Workshops last about an hour and may have higher enrollment than our other classes.
Thank you for this interesting course — Stefan certainly gave us a lot of information and a lot to think about. I wish the course was even longer!

This course was excellent, and I would/will recommend it to friends…. What I've liked about all of the three classes I've taken through StrudelmediaLive is that they are well-structured and organized. Stefan was exceptionally well-prepared for each session — it was all about teaching the material and he made an enormous amount of material available to the class.

Stefan Frank is a photographer and writer, working from Heidelberg, Germany. Way before he came to photography, he studied mathematics and philosophy at Ruhr Universität Bochum and worked as an IT specialist. He studied at Atelier Smedsby with JH Engström and Margot Wallard in Paris in 2017, before he eventually began studying photography at Ostkreuzschule, Berlin, with Peter Bialobrzeski. He graduated in 2023 with the work Irgendwo (“Anywhere”), a project dealing with politically motivated crime and the terror-spree of the far right in Germany. He has been teaching with StrudelmediaLive since 2020, giving courses on surrealism, poetics of space, gestalt theory for photographers, and more. His work has been exhibited in Heidelberg, Frankfurt, and Berlin.

Stefan teaches the poetics of space, nighttime photography, and much more — including presenting The Photobook Show — for StrudelmediaLive.
