December 27 - December 30

| €1080

Join me in New York City for a 4-day workshop during the holiday season this December 27-30 via Eyes in Progress in partnership with VII Photo Agency.

 

Learn and improve how to build a documentary reportage by covering an editorial story. To refine storytelling and story composition by analyzing real-situation problems, images analysis, editing and captions writing. Most of all, this workshop will help you discover your own visual language as well as practical and conceptual know how to confront real situation reportage making. This workshop will also focus on how to gain a new perspective on one’s works and attitude.

 

 

This will be a hands on workshop with shooting sessions, individual assignments, daily group discussion and editing sessions.

You’ll be expected to fully immerse yourself, take risks and push your boundaries in order to move forward into another level in your photography.

Day 1:
Masterclass – Projections
Ed Kashi will spend time talking about his own work and the different projects he has worked on. He will share his photographic references with the group and discuss the challenges of being a working photographer.

Portfolios reviews and projects definition
Each participant will receive and in-depth critique of their work which will also be used as a jumping board for workshop assignments. Participants are highly encouraged to come to the workshop with defined ideas on the subject they want to photograph during the workshop. However, a list of ideas in NYC will be sent to the participants before the workshop begins, Eyes in Progress is able to help in establishing contacts with local associations and persons.

Day 2:
Masterclass – Focus on how to define a story-telling project
During this morning session, Ed Kashi will talk about how to define a storytelling project and the importance of the photographers’s point of view. He will give several examples on how to precisely define an angle to a story that is personal to the photographer and consequently will bring value to his story.

Shooting sessions
Each participant goes shoot his own project. In case the participant does not have a precise idea on what subject to shoot in NYC, a list of stories will be provided a few weeks ahead the workshop. Help with directions, contacts and translation in NYC will be provided by the workshop team if needed. Participants are encouraged to come back and forth at the studio in order to have feedback on the shooting process and recommendations/advices to improve.

Back at the studio
Through the selection and discussion of the best images of the day, the participants will work towards developing their own photographic style and hopefully, see their overall approach improve.
