Foundry Photojournalism Workshop: It Starts!


Well, it started this afternoon...the 5th Foundry Photojournalism Workshop held in Chiang Mai was launched by its co-founder Eric Beecroft , and with a lovely keynote address by Maggie Steber.

The classes will be held at the impressive facilities provided by Chiang Mai University's Faculty of Fine Arts....computer rooms, overhead projectors, amphitheater, you name it...it has.

My first class Multimedia In Storytelling starts Monday morning, and I am to teach how to produce audio slideshows that rival in quality and content more elaborate multimedia productions, using their own images and audio generated in the field, and to produce cogent photo stories under the simulation of publishing deadlines. Some of them have already discussed their project ideas with me, and are quite interesting.

Monday evening, I'm on tap to show my audio slideshow "The Cult of Durga".
