James Estrin – Visual Storytelling Workshop

In occasion of Photo Vogue Festival 2017, a workshop to learn to edit your own photo projects, as well as promote and publish your work.
Many people are able to produce decent pictures, few understand how to edit and present their work. These skills will enable participants to distinguish themselves from other photographers by learning how to use images as a narrative medium.
During this workshop you will explore the art of editing for photo essays and long-term personal projects. You will analyze the structure of photographic stories and how to do a suitable editing for different targets such as publishing, exhibitions or the web, while focusing on the details of promoting your works and yourself as a professional.
Each participant will also have the opportunity to edit a photographic work under the teacher’s guidance.
