Teaching is one of my favorite things to do. I'll be doing several workshops in the year ahead. More info below (and contact me if you've got questions):
May 10 2018 -- Los Angeles. "In It for the Long Haul: Writing Winning Grant Proposals," an afternoon workshop at the Palm Springs Photo Festival. Lots of tips on how to write strong proposals and other funding ideas.
July 6-12 2018 -- Sarajevo. "VII Summer School of Storytelling," an intensive classroom and field production workshop with Paul Lowe, Ziyah Gafic and myself. Bosnia is where I began my work in post-conflict; I spent five years covering the aftermath of the 1992-95 war there. Scholarships available.
October 15-19 2018 -- New York. "Finding Your Visual Voice" (my favorite class to teach).This is an intensive five-day version of a class I usually teach over seven weeks. It's all about process and acessing your individual, intuitive, emotional visual voice -- which all too often gets buried when we try to shoot like others shoot, or get bogged down in technique and technology. Limited to 10 students.
September 13, 2018 - March 17, 2019, VII Master Class -- Warsaw.
The VII Masterclass is the most ambitious and exhaustive training program available. Aimed at developing and consolidating new talent in documentary photography and photojournalism over the course of seven months, it is only offered every other year and takes place in three sessions of four days each. I'm one of the Masters in the program and will be teaching in Warsaw from December 13-16. Other VII masters include Stefano de Luigi, Ziyah Gafic, Ed Kashi, Maciek Nabrdalik, Ilvy Njiokiktjien, Maggie Steber and Tomas Van Houtryve.
January 11, 2019 - January 17, 2019 -- Cape Town. "Born Free: Exploring Long-term Photo Projects in Today’s South Africa." I'm co-teaching with my VII colleague Ilvy Njiokiktjien. We've both worked in South Africa and have a deep love for the country, and for long-term project work. We'll be joined by local photographer/guest lecturers. Scholarships available.
