Don’t miss this special opportunity to join us in Havana before it all changes. This is the last opportunity to document and experience Cuba before it transitions to modernity.

Secure a place with a US$500 deposit.

We will fast track your photography authorship to a higher aesthetic. This workshop is open to all regardless of your level of photography practice.

Documentary photographer Jack Picone will work in tandem with workshop partner Stephen Dupont, acclaimed photojournalist and artist. Both Stephen and Jack will critique and edit participants’ work one-on-one, and also take part in evening projections and discussions.

An introductory get-together will be held on the evening prior to the workshop’s formal start in Havana. Like any working documentary photographer, you will be given an assignment brief to interpret as you wish. (The brief will be announced prior to the workshop to give you time to research possible subjects before you arrive.) The aim is to produce a documentary photo essay with a striking visual narrative, to be shown on the final evening of the workshop.

Cost: A special price of US$1,850 includes all workshop sessions. Workshop cost does not include travel costs to Cuba and accommodation. A US$500 (non-refundable secures a place on the workshop) with the balance to be paid no less then one month before the workshop starting date.

Final deadline for registration is Thursday, Oct. 18th.

Application: Our workshops are strictly limited to 15 participants. Havana is a very popular workshop destination, so please do book early to avoid disappointment.

The XT4 “Photography in Motion.”

In Kathmandu, Photography, Photography News, Street Photography, Workshop News on May 2, 2020 at 6:17 AM

It is a short film made by Film Director Megan Lewis Director of Photography Darren McCagh and Producer Kevin Cooper that helps promote Fujifilm’s latest flagship camera the XT4. Clearly, when a short film as well crafted as this is, ‘it’ [the art] is as much about the film-making as it is about the photography. The two make a potent mix.
Hope it is engaging on one level or another for those like-minded visual souls, who love storytelling, photography and film-making [and cameras], the way I do.
Stay safe during these surreal times.

Update For 2020 Workshop Schedule

In Workshop News on April 23, 2020 at 6:26 AM

Hi All,

Like people and businesses worldwide COVID-19 has ‘disrupted’ our continuing one-to-one tuition and group photography workshops.

That said, we remain optimistic (after it is safe to do so) that we will be able to offer workshops to you all towards the end of 2020.

Until then REPORTAGE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS wishes you all luck with riding out the Coronavirus storm.
