CUNY J+ is pleased to announce an intimate, five-day intensive visual storytelling workshop led by James Estrin, a senior staff photographer at The New York Times and the co-editor of the Times’ photography blog LENS.
Participants will develop a photo essay from beginning to end during the workshop. There will be individual shooting assignments, daily group discussions and critiques, editing sessions and guest speakers, including master photographers and photojournalsts. In addition to the group meetings, critiques and editing sessions, photographers will have one on one sessions with Mr. Estrin to either discuss personal projects or get career advice.
In group meetings, participants will focus on developing personal projects, learning how to tell an intimate story, as well as editing, promoting and publishing their work.
Participants meet together from 9:00 AM to 1 PM every day and shoot in the afternoons and evenings. There will be an opening reception and a closing party/slide projection of the students finished projects.
This $1,200 workshop is for professionals, advanced students and amateurs and will be limited to approximately 12 participants.
