Photojournalism Workshop

March 19, 2019 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm


Tuesday from 6:30-7:30pm

LOCATION: Roeterseilandcampus* (the room will be announced on Tuesday morning)

We will talk about the art and importance of visual storytelling. We will discuss what photojournalism means, how to do it, and what you are able to accomplish with it. We will explore the difference between a feature and a photo story, as well as explain how to tell a story through photography. How can you make your images stronger? Which pictures are necessary for journalism? What information do you need to retrieve as a photographer?

The workshop will be hosted by Isabel Bonnet, the founder of The Amsterdammer. Isabel has had her work published in several newspapers such as Tal Cual Digital, Cadena Capriles online and Le Monde. In 2017, she was co-winner of the second place of the Florida Society of News Editors journalism contest for the “News Photography” section with the photo coverage of Pulse aftermath in Orlando and Gainesville. Isabel has covered major events such as the 2016 Presidential race in Florida, photographing Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, as well as the 2017 Presidential election day in Paris for Le Monde.
