Photography workshop - Eddie Adams|
During the Barnshop: photography Workshop, the 100 chosen student participants are divided equally into ten teams. They are then paired with a photographer, an editor and a researcher, all working pros within the field of photojournalism. Each day of the workshop is divided between shooting, editing, speeches and panel discussions. Students will also have the opportunity for one-on-one time with editors to discuss their portfolios at what is known as the "11:30 Club".
This exclusive four-day workshop will provide a forum for professionals to work directly with the next generation of photojournalists. The faculty represents organizations such as Time, National Geographic, Parade, The New York Times, People, Sports Illustrated, Reuters, Miami Herald, Houston Chronicle, The Washington Post and others. Over the years, the event has drawn the participation of many great photographers including, Eddie Adams, Harry Benson, Eric Draper, Bill Eppridge, Tom Franklin, Walter Loos, David Kennerly, Douglas Kirkland, Heinz Kluetmeier, Mary Ellen Mark, Joe McNally, Carl Mydans, Gordon Parks, Joe Rosenthal and Nick Ut.
Nikon photography - Technical support
Since the workshop's inception, Nikon has assumed a large role in sponsoring the event sending equipment and professionals to teach, lecture and provide technical support. Each year, several Nikon executives and members of Nikon's Professional Services offer their expertise in panel discussions and are on hand to provide technical support.
Nikon - Barnstorm photography workshop
In addition to the event sponsorship, this is the second year that Nikon will award a $10,000 scholarship to the top student at the Barnstorm Workshop. The student will be selected by a panel of judges based on the best quality of work presented at the workshop. The scholarship must be used by the winning student to further their education in the photographic arts field, and will be applied towards their tuition and/or housing at the college of attendance. "We have an outstanding group of faculty and a dynamite support team for Workshop 18," says Alyssa Adams, deputy photo editor at TV Guide and a member of the workshop faculty. "I am thrilled they are all here this year and whole- heartedly supporting Barnstorm: The Eddie Adams Workshop; and the legacy of sharing between seasoned professionals and up-and-coming photojournalists."
The purpose of the Eddie Adams Workshop is to create a forum where the exchange of ideas, techniques, and philosophies can be shared between both established members and newcomers of the profession of picture journalism. The workshop is a tuition-free, invitation-only event. Attendees are portfolio-selected by the Eddie Adams Workshop Board of Directors.
