Project Development—Finding your Vision and Voice Masterclass with Ed Kashi & Julie Winokur

The goal of this work­shop, which will meet online, is to help you build a Passion Project–a long term project around an issue you are per­son­al­ly pas­sion­ate about. It will help you cre­ate a struc­ture to devel­op the project, teach you skills to make the con­tacts and net­work that would be nec­es­sary to car­ry out your plan, and over 6 months pro­vide feed­back and sup­port to accom­plish your goals as you work on your project.

The Original Masterclass with Stefano De Luigi & Maciek Nabrdalik

The VII Masterclass is one of the most ambi­tious and exhaus­tive train­ing pro­grams avail­able. It aims to devel­op and con­sol­i­date new tal­ent in doc­u­men­tary pho­tog­ra­phy and pho­to­jour­nal­ism over a peri­od of three months. It is struc­tured around three sem­i­nars with work­shop ses­sions and mul­ti­ple one-on-one inter­ac­tions woven in between. The prin­ci­pal objec­tive of this Masterclass is to allow time for progress to devel­op, and for the long-term struc­ture to have a last­ing con­tri­bu­tion to your pro­fes­sion­al train­ing.

Bookmaking Online Masterclass with Philip Blenkinsop & Daniel Schwartz

The Masterclass–which meets online–addresses the crit­i­cal peri­od between the last phase of a pho­to­graph­ic project and the moment when you decide to look for a pub­lish­er. In oth­er words, the peri­od when you need to exer­cise the author’s author­i­ty but still want to lis­ten to those with expe­ri­ence in mak­ing books. It aims to define a book that trans­mits the author’s nar­ra­tive to the view­er and is in itself an ade­quate three-dimensional rep­re­sen­ta­tion of con­tent and propo­si­tion.
