The world’s leading photojournalists from VII Photo have teamed up with the technology specialists from AbelCine
to present an immersive, two-day educational program: The VII Evolution Tour
. This program examines the technology, craft and business practices of today’s successful visual storytellers. The event is structured as a combination of seminars, panel discussions, hands-on workshops, and networking.
John Stanmeyer and Ashley Gilbertson will lead students around New York’s West Village, including the Christopher Street Pier and Washington Square Park, and guide students to approach subjects, compose their frames, and find new and unexpected angles. A short editing critique will follow the shooting session, and the best work from each student will appear on the VII Instagram feed.
