Look3 Festival of the Photograph: Masterclass Street Smart with Bruce Gilden

For the past week, I have been fortunate to take Bruce Gilden’s Look3 Masterclass Workshop Street Smart and attend the Look3 Festival of the Photograph in Charlottesville, Virginia. Leica and Canon provided generous support for the tuition-free workshop. In addition to their support, I was lucky to have been invited here by National Geographic Society’s Expeditions Council. They were also nice enough to take a few of us Young Explorers Grant recipients out to dinner along with National Geographic Magazine photographer Carsten Peter who spoke about some of his assignments that involved chasing and being jolted by lightning as well as his favorite vulcanoes. Thank you to everyone who supported my trip to Look3 this year! Here is my favorite image from the workshop which I produced for our street photography portrait assignments that will be projected in the pavilion at the start of tonight’s slide presentations at 9pm at the end of the downtown mall in Charlottesville.
