International Photojournalism Today
June 8th, 2009
with Ron Haviv
This workshop will explore the multi-faceted approaches to international photojournalism and help guide you on your own path. Participants will learn what is required of a photojournalist, not just in the field but also when it comes to having work published and how to get your work out there. Developing a personal sensitivity and visual style will be emphasized and Haviv will encourage you to work using their instinct rather than formula.
Combining portfolio reviews, assignments, editing sessions, and dialogue, Haviv will also share his own work and experience as a photojournalist in conflict and crisis areas. Portfolio reviews will guide each person’s narrative direction and then be developed through assignments given during the workshop.
Throughout the week, Ron will help you understand the pulse of international journalism today and share his tips on what it takes to cover the world scene. You will leave with a clearer understanding of your next step and be well along the way to defining your personal path forward.
