Capturing a story on film is a complex process. It demands an understanding of the issue at hand as well as the ability to condense, package, and pitch the story to a distributor. Successful photojournalists make a job of nailing down the details before a shoot and being prepared for anything.
In “Your Photojournalism Survival Kit”, Ron Haviv brings two decades of experience in building a photojournalism career on carefully laid groundwork. In this course for CreativeLive, you’ll learn:
- How to identify a captivating story and organize a plan for shooting it
- How to create a budget and a pitch letter
- How to plan for any eventuality during the shoot, and cope with setbacks when they strike
- Ron Haviv draws on his long career for anecdotes and suggestions for aspiring photographers. He’ll teach you that your assignment starts before you leave your house; planning, packing and preparing for even the best laid plans to go awry is essential. You’ll learn tricks for assessing your preparedness, safety, and support while on assignment in the field.
