Who is SHE? She is Ami Vitale, one of my favorite photojournalists who currently works out of India. If you haven’t seen her work online – RUN and check it out here. The images will inspire you and the Flash-based presentation will wow you. It’s clean, simple, elegant and amazing.
Ami is internationally recognized for her documentary work. The National Press Photographers Association recently awarded her the much acclaimed Magazine Photographer of the Year title. At the recent PhotoPlusExpo in New York City, the World Press Photo folks had assembled her winning portfolio of images from Gujarat (after the riots). With her permission, I’ll try and post those images here. She is also Canon’s 2003 Female Photographer of the Year.
Meanwhile, here is your chance to learn from this young master of photography! Leslie Scott Photography and Tours is offering a special workshop with Ami from January 31 to February 14, 2004. The workshop will take place in Rajasthan. Again, I wish I could go. But if any of you do make it there, do send me a report at: tiffinbox[at]pipalproductions[dot]com.
Leslie Scott Photography and Tours is presenting a special workshop on Jan.
31 through Feb. 14 to Rajasthan with Ami Vitale, 2003 Best of Photojournalism
“Magazine Photographer of the Year” by the National Press Photographers
Association. This will be a true learning experience. Ami will spend a half or full
day (to be determined by the group) with each person on a one-on-one basis. The
others that are shooting on their own will be accompanied by myself, if they
choose, or will have time to roam around and shoot on their own. That night
Ami will discuss with them what they shot. This will take place part of the time
at Jaisalmer. Ami will accompany everyone as a group the rest of the time. In
addition, we will spend time with Ami as she shows us how she transmits her
images and works as a freelance agency photographer on a day-to-day basis (she
is one of Getty Images top photojournalists). Ami will also talk about how to
sell your work on a daily basis to different outlets. Ami is also the
recipient of some of the most prestigious grants in the industry. If anyone is
interested in more information, they can contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or this toll-free number: 1-888-381-0854.
