As the plat­form for doc­u­men­tary pho­tog­ra­phy has moved from tra­di­tion­al print pub­li­ca­tions to online outlets–and media hous­es ask for work that is suit­able for online presentation–photographers must adapt their work accord­ing­ly.  Espen Rasmussen will guide you through the process of cre­at­ing an idea or project, explain how online projects are planned and designed, con­cen­trat­ing on the need for video con­tent, doc­u­men­tary pho­tog­ra­phy, graph­ics and oth­er edi­to­r­i­al con­tent, and give advice on cre­at­ing projects that are con­sis­tent and pre­pared for online pre­sen­ta­tion.

He will also guide you through the process of propos­ing, work­ing, and edit­ing work for print­ed mag­a­zines. The work­shop will focus on how to con­tin­ue work­ing as a pho­tog­ra­ph­er with your own style and lan­guage, while at the same time adapt­ing to the demands of dig­i­tal plat­forms. Using his own projects as exam­ples, Espen will bring his wealth of expe­ri­ence as pic­ture edi­tor at the Hub in VG to explain what he looks for in work that is sub­mit­ted for pub­li­ca­tion.
