Palm Springs Photo Festival

This workshop will explore the multifaceted approaches to photojournalism and help guide you on your own path. Participants will learn what is required of a photojournalist, not just in the field but also when it comes to having work published and how to get your work known. Developing a personal sensitivity and visual style will be emphasized and Haviv will encourage you to work using your instinct rather than formula. Combining portfolio reviews, assignments, editing sessions and dialogue, Haviv will also share his own work and experience as a photojournalist documenting both conflict and the story at home. Portfolio reviews will guide each person’s narrative direction and then be developed through assignments given during the workshop.

Throughout the workshop, Ron will help you understand the pulse of photojournalism today and share his tips on what it takes to cover your own backyard as well as the world around you. You will leave with a clearer understanding of your next step and be well along the way to defining your personal path forward.
