I will be speaking and teaching a 2 day workshop at Stanford University this upcoming March 2-4.
More information to follow shortly!
“While Apple tells us the there are now 6 billion photojournalists in the world today, the reality is very few people with a camera understand the implications of visual storytelling, capturing images with control, understanding the context of an image and it’s importance, and critically what their motivations for making images might be. This two-day workshop will allow you to share your work in an intimate session and learn about the many new ways we can create photographs, tell visual stories, work with mobile photography, social media and develop your personal style and approach for greater satisfaction. And for those professionals who want to grow and develop your work to a new level, for publication online and in books, exhibitions and websites, this workshop will change your life. There will be an emphasis on helping students develop their personal vision and unique styles. As with most of Ed Kashi’s work, the ultimate goal is to find a subject you are passionate about, and document it in a compelling and unique visual. We will look at photographs, multimedia and short films to consider the range of opportunities out there at the moment. Students will have 2 half days of shooting and a review session, plus a group critique of each student’s portfolio/essays during the workshop.
The participants in this workshop will come away with a greater understanding of not only how to improve their photographs but will also be inspired to find new ways to personalize their approach to bring greater meaning to their work and the experience of doing photography.”
