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…
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.
