Photojournalism Workshop: Mexico City
The Foundry Photojournalism Workshop will be held June 16-21, 2008 in Mexico City, and is the brainchild of Eric Beecroft, a photographer and educator who teaches photography and photojournalism/documentary photography at the Walden School in Utah.
The concept behind the workshop was to establish a venue where many instructors would share their expertise with emerging photojournalists, creating an impromptu community of sorts.... a workshop where getting into the field, producing real reportage, getting candid, real time feedback, and making new friends and developing contacts were first and foremost.
All the instructors at this workshop are donating their time and talents. Its objective is to help the passionate student, the emerging photojournalist, to hone his or her skills, to have a chance to work with some of the world’s best photographers in the field, on real reportage projects, to create multimedia, to see some of the best work being done today, to collaborate, to make contact, to plan future projects, develop personal vision and leave the workshop energized, exhausted, and more committed then ever to concerned photography, storytelling and to documenting our world through the lens.
Some of the instructors are: Lynsey Addario, Kael Alford, Jon Anderson, Paula Bronstein, Andrea Bruce, Tewfic El-Sawy, Stanley Greene, Jason P. Howe, Hugo Infante, Scott McKiernan,Tomas Munita, M. Robinson-Chavez, Saul Schwarz, Brian Storm, Ami Vitale and Holly Wilmeth.
