Washington, D.C., November 10th-17th 2012

Truth With A Camera will hold its next workshop back in the U.S. where it was first founded in 1994. This intense, week-long workshop will be held in the nation’s capitol in conjunction with FotoWeek DC, one of our proud partners. 

D.C. is the epicenter of the nonprofit world, with more organizational headquarters than anywhere else in the world. It is city that understands the role nonprofits have in our lives and many of the organizations in the region are focused on providing programing for its local residents.

With our organizational partner, The Center for Nonprofit Advancement, we have the ability to collaborate with hundreds of organizations working in the region.

As with all TWAC workshops, students will find an organization and topic they are passionate about and spend the week focused on making powerful images that speak to the mission of those organizations. Participants will work one-on-one with their photo coaches and attend lectures by leading documentary photographers and editors. The level of personal instruction is unparalleled and is what makes our workshops so sought after.

Photographers, both students and professionals, and anyone who is tasked with visually documenting the work of Non-profits or NGOs, including employees of Non-profits, are encouraged to attend the workshop. The workshop will take place at Sitar Arts Center located in the Adams Morgan neighborhood. This state-of-the art, 10,700 square-foot-facility was designed to provide optimal arts education.

At the end of the week, selects from each student will be printed for a gallery exhibition that will be open to our subjects, our partnering organizations and the public at large to showcase the power that still images can have in storytelling.

The workshop focuses both on teaching visual communicators how to work with and for non-profits as well as instructing non-profits how to work with photographers and use powerful photography. This years instructors include National Geographic photographers Lynn Johnson and Karen Kasmauski as well as educators Ron Londen and Chris Tyree. Speakers include Washington Post photographers Michael Williamson and Jahi Chikwendiu, White House photographers Lawrence Jackson, National Geographic Illustrations Editor Pamela Chen, as well as key notes from Maurice Jones, Deputy Secretary for Housing and Urban Development, freelance photographer Matt Eich, director of PhotoPhilanthropy, Kathleen Hennessy and Pictures of the Year photographer of the year Ross Taylor from the Virginian-Pilot. All speaking engagements are free and open to the public.

We look forward to having a well-rounded and diverse group of students in this D.C. workshop.  Stay tuned for more international workshops in 2013.
