Come down to Cape Town!

Posted in Photography on April 12th, 2012 by Jeff Hutchens

Join Momenta Workshops and myself in Cape Town this June – two weeks of challenging yourself to create the best images you can possibly create!  We’re there to edit and brainstorm with you everyday and make sure you grow both as an artist and a journalist.

South Africa is a phenomenal place to shoot – surreal light, amazing textures and compelling stories.  Hope to see you there!

Wine-drinking sharks take over Cape Town!

Okay, maybe the good people of Cape Town don’t have goblet-tippling Great Whites to keep an eye out for per se – but you can’t argue with the fact that South African wines and fearsome-toothed sea creatures both make their homes in the Western Cape of South Africa.  This coming June 2011 you’ll have the chance to get up close and personal with both of them in-between clicks of your camera’s shutter as you some capture some of the most unbelievable light in the world in one of the coolest towns in the Southern Hemisphere.   Join me and the great folks at Momenta Workshops as we work alongside Cape Town-based non-profits to create compelling documentary photo essays of the work these non-profits do and the people they serve.  These are life-changing workshops that give you a great chance to hone your photographic skills while making a difference in the lives of your subjects!

I taught with Momenta Workshops in Northern Uganda last year and had an amazing time with some incredible people!  Check out the work of some of these photographers we had a chance to be with in Northern Uganda, and let’s make some pictures a little further down south on the continent this June…

Whitney Curtis
Agaton Strom
Crystalline Randazzo
Fizzah Raza
Magda Rakita

P.S. Despite this post’s catchy (if mildly far-fetched title), this workshop is all about photography.  It’s all about intensely immersive and highly rewarding days.  We’ll provide the critiques, structure, and challenge for you to create a body of work that will make both you and your partner non-profits very proud.  Your photography will change.  You will change.

I’m kitted out with one of their rigs for the Canon 5D Mark II in this behind the scenes image from a shoot in Kolkata this last February.

The village alarm clock…

I’ve been mostly filming moving images while here in Kolkata for the Kolkata Mercy Hospital, but felt like the village rooster needed a still frame all his own.  Click to enlarge…

If you are in NYC in the next month or two stop by Bellhaus – corner of Bond St. and Bowery (57 Bond St.) – to see a print exhibition of 21 images I’ve created over the last few years spanning four continents and several bodies of work. Drop me a line if you get a chance to see the show!
