This class is intended for photographers interested in working on stories of social significance. We will look into how the non-profit sector is organized, as well as how to get assignments and write grants. We will focus on successful partnerships between photographers and NGOs, including editing techniques. You will learn about various distribution models—where and how to show your work and how to make people aware of the issues you want to highlight. (12 hours)
