I am so thrilled to work with my wife, Julie Winokur, on this VII Photo Interactive online masterclass over the course of 24 weeks!
The goal of this workshop is to help you build a Passion Project – a long term project around an issue you are personally passionate about. It will help you create a structure to develop the project, teach you skills to make the contacts and network that would be necessary to carry out your plan, and over 6 months provide feedback and support to accomplish your goals as you work on your project.
With this online workshop, the participants will learn from the dynamic Ed Kashi and Julie Winokur, who over the past 25 years have collaborated on major documentary projects looking at a wide range of issues such as aging, healthcare, refugees, and immigration.
With guidance and expert advice, your work will grow, and importantly, you’ll learn how to produce a long-term project from start to finish. You’ll also learn the intricacies turning your passion into a workable idea. You will learn research methods, best practices for gaining access and creating trust with your contacts and subjects, and the importance of commitment to one project. What’s important is clarity of purpose and setting achievable goals.
The importance of personal projects and long-term work is paramount to developing a more intimate practice that will endure the tribulations of this profession; these kinds of projects also make you stand out.
With editorial photography changing so dramatically, there has never been a greater need for a documentary photographer to be able to put a personal stamp on their work. In this masterclass, there will be an emphasis on helping students develop their personal vision and unique styles.
