Last week, I had the pleasure of interviewing Elizabeth Krist, Senior Photo Editor at National Geographic magazine. We discussed photographers, photo editing and the workshop she will be teaching from July 31 to August 3, in Vermont.
She is joined at this wonderful retreat for photographers by other photo editors and decision makers:
June 19-22: Sam Barzilay, UPI and Photoville
June 26-28: Angelika Hala, Stern Magazine
July 10-13: James Estrin, New York Times
July 24-27: Denise Wolff, Aperture
August 7-10: Whitney Johnson, The New Yorker
August 21-23: Emily Keegin, Bloomberg Businessweek Magazine
August 28-30: William A. Ewing, Thames and Hudson
“This summer, FotoVisura is hosting a unique 3-day intensive workshop in Stowe, Vermont that features an impressive list of guest editors. The workshop includes editing, sequencing, design layout, and final presentation. Photographers will be paired with a guest editor in one-on-one and group sessions to help consult photographers on their goals – whether it’s a photo essay, portfolio, multimedia, book or exhibition.”
I first heard of the Foto Visura photo editing and post production workshops through Photoshelter and so I want to thank them (and Lauren Margolis, in particular) for introducing me to Elizabeth.
Foto Visura was founded by Adriana Teresa and Graham Letorney. Learn more about Foto Visura here. As I express to Elizabeth, if I were in town, I would definitely sign up to be a part of her program as she appears to be open to making it about either photography or photo editing.
Check out the video below and if you have any questions or comments, please pen them below.
Learn more from Elizabeth through this wonderful webinar coordinated by Photoshelter's Allen Murabayashi. If you do decide to go to Vermont, please let me know what your thoughts are about these workshops. It's important that we share, in equal measure, the successes and challenges of photography and photo editing workshops everywhere.
