Julia Dean is a dynamic photojournalist and teacher based in Los Angeles, California. Apart from being the driving force behind the Child Labor Photo Project, she also conducts workshops around the world. The most recent workshops have been in Guatemala, Paris and Budapest.
While most of us will travel to a new environment, take a few images and be content by throwing them into a shoe box or relegating them to the nether regions of our hard disks, Julia encourages photographers to actually go through the process of printing the images and exhibiting them. These workshops are extremely popular and the next one is coming to New York City. It will be from April 4 to April 10. The one after that is in Barcelona, Spain, from May 29 – June 5.
This workshop is all about shooting on the streets of New York. It’s for those of you who have never been to New York, but always wanted to go, and for those of you who have been there but never found the time to shoot photos all day.
Each day includes shooting, critiquing the work, private consultations, and lectures on various technical topics, such as how to approach people and how to shoot on the street. One of the greatest things about this workshop is that I’ll bring in a different New York photographer (and good friend) to help us critique your work and to share their work as well. You’ll be meeting photojournalists, commercial photogs, and a wedding and event photographer too.
We’re staying downtown — in Greenwich Village — at the Washington Square Hotel. We’ll arrive and gather for the first time on Sunday, April 4th. Our last day together will be Sat., April 10th. And yes, we plan to have an exhibit too.
Workshop Fee: $1,995
Includes tuition, double room occupancy for six nights, a classroom (in a terrific gallery space!) , special guests, goodies from Eastman Kodak, and an exhibit opening at the Julia Dean Gallery.
