David Storey

David StoreyFirst camera – a Kodak Brownie. If you know what that is you’re probably not a photojournalist you’re more likely a photo historian. If you have used one, then you are probably too old to be taking my class.

First darkroom – my mother’s bathroom at 12. Luckily we had two. All those chemicals and it was hard to control the water temperature, but one can wash a lot of prints in a tub. Thank God the world went digital.

First assignment – covering Vietnam anti-war protestors in the San Francisco Bay Area. I survived, but the guy next to me couldn’t run as fast. He got his head bashed and the film ripped out of his camera by the police. If that gets you really excited about being a photojournalist then you should definitely attend this workshop.

I covered lifestyle, political issues and rock concerts for a local newspaper for several years before returning to school to studying architecture – boring. I really just went back to play basketball. I was an art major, a photography major and a couple of other majors along the way. Time to get serious. Transferred to BYU. Made my parents proud by finally graduating.

I freelanced for several ad agencies, was a designer for an industrial manufacturing firm, and then started my own agency.

Along the road my clients have included: The Osmond Brothers, Novell, WordPerfect, BYU, the State of Utah, 1-800 Contacts, Steven R. Covey & Associates, Who Moved My Cheese? and Robert Redford’s Sundance Resort.

I have taught design and photography at Brigham Young University and a couple of colleges.

My work has been featured in Print Magazine. I show regularly at a local museum and have won numerous awards for my commercial and fine art work.

I have worked as a photojournalist, art director, designer and illustrator. I currently maintain a design and commercial photography studio in Provo, Utah.

I have been on both sides of the table – as a photographer and as an art director hiring photographers. I will share my insights and guide the novice as he or she begins the journey.

If you aren’t sure of what area of photography you want to be in or question your level of proficiency – take my course. As part of the Foundry Workshop you will have the opportunity to meet and hear from some of the best photojournalists in the business.

Henrik Kastenskov

 

Henrik KastenskovHenrik Kastenskov (Denmark, 1966) works as documentary photographer and lecturer of web documentary in an effort to redefine storytelling for online platforms.

“The internet is a battleground where everybody is fighting for attention. It seemed logical to change the focus from an exhibition style approach in photography towards an approach where you would focus on the story as the main carrier of the message”.

Henrik co-founded Bombay Flying Club in 2006 and after a stint as staff photographer he turned towards web documentary full time in 2008 focusing on developing methods and approaches that would catch the attention of the inherently impatient online audience.

Apart from a body of documentary work that spans from teenage suicides over climate change through Afghanistan vets and the conflict in South Sudan amongst other topics, this has been turned into a series of lectures and workshops taught around the globe as well as taking on the role as producer for other photographers.

Select biography:

Awarded several times in the Danish POY and POY International for his web documentaries, both as director and producer, member of the POY juries in Denmark, Sweden and Norway, member of the Energy Action Project, works as Associate Professor at the Danish School of Media and Journalism.

Most of the class’s time will be spent photographing in the field, while indoors time will be devoted to weaving the material into photo stories. Requirements for the class are Soundslides (free trial version available), Audacity (free audio editing program) and an audio digital recorder.
