About the workshop

During this eight-day workshop, each participant will photograph every single day, creating a story from this ancient city, with the support of Ed and Anush, who have years of experience in Istanbul. In addition to practical work, lectures on narrative development, the language of photography and the art of visual storytelling, there will be discussions about today’s constantly changing field of photography.

The participants will spend a lot of their time photographing in the city, together with local fixers, exploring the streets and homes of Istanbul, meeting strangers, and crafting their stories. The participants will continually return to the workshop location to review their images together with Ed and Anush, understanding how their story is moving forward and the directions they should be taking.

The photographers will present their newly created stories to the whole group on the last day of the workshop in a closing event, where fixers are invited, as well as anybody who contributed to the building of the story.

The creation of a concise body of work is one of the aims of this workshop, but the most important goal is the learning experience itself, and the beautiful process of overcoming the challenges while making a story happen.

This workshop will teach but also inspire you to become a better photographer and visual storyteller. We also believe in the importance of creating and expanding our community by sharing intimately and candidly our experience from being in the field for decades.

Photographers of any level of experience are welcome.

Preferred software – Lightroom or another quality digital asset management application to make the flow of editing and reviewing run smoothly. We can help answer questions or direct participants to various options.
