"As part of the Nikon Spirit Initiative, we are proud to enter our 14th year as a sponsor of the Workshop," said Anna Marie Bakker, director of Communications, Nikon Inc.

From September 25th through October 1st, 2005, students and faculty will begin their photographic documentary of Marshall, Missouri, a small farming community located between Kansas City and Saint Louis that is steeped in tradition and history. Through its sponsorship of the workshop, the Nikon Spirit Initiative continues it mission to encourage photographers from all walks of life to share their vision. For more information on the Missouri Photo Workshop, visit the Photo website.

Photographers, photojournalism & photo editors
This year's students will be instructed by a distinguished faculty comprised of reputed photographers and photo editors from some of the country's finest newspapers and magazines. The workshop faculty is comprised of many of the top editorial and photographic influencers in the business of photography and photojournalism. Faculty includes: George Olsen, freelance picture editor; Dennis Dimick, National Geographic Magazine's associate editor; Melissa Farlow and Randy Olsen, freelance photographers; Lois Raimondo, chief photographer for Associated Press' Hanoi bureau; Geri Migielicz, photography director with the San Jose Mercury News; MaryAnne Golon, Time Magazine's picture editor; Danny Wilcox-Frazier, documentary photographer; John Trotter, freelance journalist and Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Rick Rickman.

Missouri Photography Workshop - Community
To conclude the two-week documentary tour, the workshop will bring the stories of Marshall to the masses. "The workshop will end with a 300-print exhibit open to the entire community," said David Rees, Co-Director of the Missouri Photo Workshop. "This is always a unique opportunity for the community to see itself reflected in the mirror of documentary photojournalism."

Magazine & newspaper photographers
In subsequent years, faculty members have been many of America's leading newspaper and magazine photographers and photo editors; a roster of faculty and students reads like a who's who of photojournalism. Faculty of today includes some of the most energetic, productive and articulate documentary creators currently working. All are experts dedicated to passing on the fundamentals of photo research, shooting and editing to those who hope to carry on these values and techniques into the future. The workshop still follows Cliff Edom’s credo, "Show truth with a camera. Ideally truth is a matter of personal integrity."

The Workshop focuses on developing skills to produce the visual narrative known as the picture story. Individually strong pictures are still expected, but research, questioning and thinking are stressed. Before photographers begin taking pictures, they must have their story ideas approved by a faculty team. The team expects the photographer to have firm ideas about exactly what the essence of the story is and the visual opportunities that can help to tell that story. The Workshop photographers work closely with their faculty team, conferring with them throughout the day. In the evening of each of the six days of shooting is an open critique, where the best and worst of the day's shooting are publicly critiqued. The week culminates in a unique and often moving 300-print exhibit where local residents are invited to see what the 40 workshop photographers have been seeing in their community through the lens of their Nikon camera.
