Four Pulitzer Prize winners in one room
I was selected to attend the Eddie Adams Workshop in upstate New York with some of the greatest people in the industry. 50 professionals out of 500 top applicants from 17 countries applied for these sacred spots. Speakers and hands on editors included Directors of Photography at National Geographic, The New York Times, Time, Newsweek, and at least four Pulitzer Prize winning photographers.
It was truly inspiring and intense. Some think of the workshop as a hazing process or boot camp. In total I was allowed about 8 hours of sleep in 4 nights. Eek.
A portion of the workshop is spent out in the field completing an assignment. I was selected to do my story in multimedia and will be posting it soon.
