Photojournalism Today

October 25 – 26, 2010

This intense two-day workshop will explore the multi-faceted approaches to photojournalism and help guide participants on their own path. Discussions will include what is required of a photojournalist, not just in the field but also organizing workflow, developing a marketing plan and publishing your images.

Developing a personal sensitivity and visual style will be discussed and Haviv will encourage participants to work using instinct rather than formula. These discussions will help develop each student’s individual narrative direction. The workshop will combine lectures, portfolio reviews, a thematic assignment, and editing sessions. Haviv will also share his own work and experience as a photojournalist.

In two short days, Haviv will help you understand the reality of photojournalism today and share his tips on what it takes to cover the world. You will leave with a clearer understanding of what it takes and be well along the way to defining your personal path forward in the world of photography.
