Foundry Photojournalism Workshop 2009

As previously posted on TTP, the Foundry Photojournalism Workshop (FPW) has announced its second annual event planned for 26 July - 1 August 2009, in Manali, Manali-Kulu Valleys, Himachal Pradesh, India.

The Foundry Photojournalism Workshop was created to provide training, education and networking to emerging photographers and students who normally would not be able to afford workshops, Foundry is a grassroots workshop series held in inspiring and photographically challenging global locations.

I'm proud to be associated with FPW for the second time, and I thought it'd be useful to post details of the multimedia class I'll be teaching in Manali:

Tewfic El-Sawy will teach a multimedia class that allows its participants to concentrate on the story, rather than on the application. The purpose and aim of the class is to show photojournalists how to make quick work of slide show production, using their own images and audio generated in the field, to produce a cogent photo story under the simulation of publishing deadlines. Most of the class's time will be spent photographing in the field, while class time will be devoted to weaving the material into photo stories.

This class will require will use SoundSlides software, and either Audacity or GarageBand for audio. Participants will need to have Flash Audio Recorders for field work.

Please contact FPW's administration directly through its website for registration or questions.
