Over the last couple of years, we’ve conducted workshops in places including Australia, India, Turkey and the United States. Here’s a list of our upcoming workshops:
Darjeeling Tea Plantation Workshop - Darjeeling, India
March 18-27, 2013
Pictographers is hosting a ten-day documentary field techniques workshop in Darjeeling, India. Photographers will learn documentary techniques and then put them to practice on rural tea plantations and farming communities in northeast India’s Darjeeling district. The workshop is intended for photographers, aid workers, anthropologists or university students with a passion for documentary photography. The workshop fee of $3,495 includes accommodation, meals, emergency evacuation insurance and ground transportation.
Spain and Morocco Workshop - Jerez, Spain
May 3-16, 2013
Spring in Andalucia is a time of festivities. Villages come alive with fairs, pilgrimages, bullfights and dancing. We will experience the Andaluz culture, then head to Tarifa to catch the 35-minute ferry to Tangiers, Morocco. Workshop fee of $3,495 includes accommodation and meals. Space limited to ten students.
Field Techniques for Documentary Photographers at Maine Media Workshops - Rockport, Maine
June 23-29, 2013
Learn to research, shoot, and edit a long-term documentary photography project. Take documentary photography to a new level with tips, tricks and experience from one of the top documentary photographers in the business. Tuition is $1,075 and class size is limited to 14.
Poetic Storytelling at Pacific NorthWest Art School - Coupeville, Washington
August 5-9, 2013
This workshop begins with an in-depth analysis of each student’s portfolio in an effort to reveal the common thread that runs through his or her work. Subsequently, the instructor uses the information garnered by this analysis to guide students in the full realization of their uniquely personal visions. There are daily shooting assignments and class field trips; however making photographs is only part of the course. The course is intense and involves readings, writing, slide shows and active participation in-group discussions. Tuition is $795.
Poetic Storytelling at Maine Media Workshops - Rockport, Maine
September 15-21, 2013
The telling of stories through images is an exciting and effective way for a photographer to communicate his or her unique experience of the world. The most profound picture stories are multi-layered. How a story is told is often more important than the narrative itself. Mood, color and composition are among the elements used to transform the narrative to the visually poetic. Tuition is $1,075 and class size is limited to 14.
We’re looking forward to bringing our training to even more places over the months to come and so, if you have ideas - or wishes - for where we should hold workshops, please let us know.
If you’re an organization, foundation or company, we can also customize writing and photography training to your specific needs. We’ve done sessions and workshops lasting from a few hours to two weeks in length, and are confident in putting together courses that will both spark your staff’s creativity and hone their technique. Please contact us for further details.
If you’d like to keep updated on upcoming workshops and other training opportunities - or just want to be a part of the Pictographers community - please consider signing up for our Facebook group.
