Carving your niche | Finding unique visual moments | Editorial perspective
“We all have an ego, but after a while you have to leave it behind because it makes no sense to keep witnessing these things just to make a name. Photojournalism becomes less about you and more about the people you’re photographing. It’s about offering other people a voice,” David Dare Parker
Two outstanding, multi-award winning photojournalists with invaluable experience and perspective across all facets of the world of photography will work with you over two days (plus another seminar day) to identify and apply what can differentiate you and your work from the crowded world of imagery no matter which area you are in.
Is there a difference between photographing for the news and photographing from the heart? What is the difference between making images and communicating a story through photography? What is more important – reinforcing stereotypes or understanding the bigger picture?
These differences can make or break the impact and depth of your work and the goals you want to achieve.
