About the workshop

Spend a week getting closer, reaching deeper and taking your photography to new places. Oslo Diary is set in Norway’s capital city, and the metropolis a dramatic setting for you to explore an emotional landscape. The workshop is aimed at teaching professional, semi-professional and advanced amateur photographers a new approach to their work, one rooted in personal connection and emotional content. In this intense, immersive shooting workshop, you will produce an in-depth photographic essay during the week. The thrust of the workshop is to help you bring your unique personal voice to your work and take home a new way of seeing your images and the world of documentary photography.

In this hands-on workshop, Danny and Linda will guide you through the rigorous steps of research, pre-planning, building relationships, ethical issues, and varied visual approaches. We will also examine how to build different distribution platforms for the work, harness the power of social media, and successfully disseminate documentary work in this complex time of change in the photography business. You are encouraged to bring your unique personal vision to your work, and to deepen their understanding of how you see the world and documentary photography.

“Linda motivated me to push myself, develop good habits and showed me how I could grow despite the inevitable mistakes. She helped me find my strengths and weaknesses, then taught me how I could use them too my advantage. Her knowledge of light and how you use it changed the way I photograph. I keep going back to what I learned from her and apply it to my career. I use her teaching to take my work were I want it to go.” – Kine Michelle Bruniera
