Welcome to Studio Without Walls / John Hames Photography


This site is no longer hosting workshops.  Photographic services are still available, but for instructional and educational offerings, please visit the Rhode Island School of Design's Continuing Education site for courses that I am currently teaching or scheduled to teach in the coming semesters.


I have taught over 130 courses at RISD CE, including almost 20 different course listings, over my 14 years of teaching there.  In June of 2017, I was awarded the Teacher of Excellence Award at RISD CE's graduation ceremony, and I am currently teaching an average of 6 different courses each semester, ranging from Introduction to Photography, to the Final Projects course that certificate students in the Photography Program take before graduating.  These courses include Landscape Photography, Documentary Photography, Black and White Digital Photography, Composition, Advanced Critique, Studio Lighting, and many more.

I hope that you might consider taking one of our offerings, according to your interests, skill level, and availability.  Some courses require prerequisites, so please take a look and see if there is a course that you think will benefit your interests.


Thank you,

John Hames
