Firstly we are happy to release confirmation of  a special opportunity to attend an intensive documentary photography and photojournalism workshop conducted by two of the world’s most renowned & celebrated photographers.

In an Australian first and exclusively for Reportage, James Nachtwey and Festival Director Stephen Dupont will be holding a five day workshop together  from June 10 – 14, 2013 as an official part of the 2013 Reportage Festival program

This is a rare opportunity for photographers to benefit from the wealth of experience that Nachtwey and Dupont have to offer.

One of Australia’s emerging giants of photography is Ed Giles, based in Cairo covering the unfolding Middle East Crisis for the last couple of years, Ed is flying back to work alongside Nachtwey and Dupont. Ed will offer the students his creative insights into multi media development and editing throughout the week.

The workshop schedule will be demanding but highly rewarding.
