Workshop Details


Personal projects are a great way to make the work you want be hired for, try out your creative ideas, or apply your talents to a good cause, whether you’re a writer, designer, developer, or anything in-between. That said, personal projects can be full of challenges, from choosing the right topic to figuring out how to launch. 

Join photographer Helena Price for a how-to session in producing high-quality personal projects of your own, from start to finish. 


Helena Price is a commercial, editorial and portrait photographer based in San Francisco, California.

Raised in a small town in North Carolina, Helena has been making photos since she was six years old, getting her start shooting with disposable cameras from Wal-Mart. At 25, Helena ditched her prospering Silicon Valley career to try and make photos full-time. Within two years, she was named “Silicon Valley’s Most Wanted Photographer,” working on projects with Facebook, Fitbit, Google, Microsoft, Nike, Pinterest, Twitter, Uber, Square and more. Her work has been featured on ABC, CNN, The New York Times, Fast Company, Fortune, Glamour, The Guardian, Inc. and more, and Huffington Post named her one of the “Top 30 Most Influential Photographers on the Web.” She no longer shoots with disposable cameras from Wal-Mart. 

Helena graduated with a degree in Public Relations from North Carolina State University in 2009.

Workshop is open to all NCSU faculty, students, and staff.
