During the workshop you’ll be able to develop your personal vision and style with photography and to further understand your practice. You will work on a personal story that by the end of the workshop will be edited into a multimedia piece and that you will be able to use as a portfolio once back home. Some students in the past have worked on more than one project during the week, that is also a possibility. Also, during the workshop you will get to know a network of professionals that will be useful for your growth in photography, both in a professional and creative way.
Yes, at the workshop end you will receive our amazing certificate of participation.
It is certainly ideal to try to figure out an idea to focus on before the workshop starts. As already mentioned, each student will develop a personal project during the workshop and all the ideas will be discussed during the first day of class with the teacher. PWNY staff will help each participant in finding a project’s idea during the months proceeding the workshop beginning if needed. After enrollment, we will also send a bibliography and filmography specifically tailored for the workshop to give you a spark of inspiration! And don’t worry, worst case scenario you find yourself with no ideas at the beginning of the workshop, the teacher and the other participants will share their ideas with you! We have eight years of experience in helping students develop their ideas and project in New York, and it has always been an amazing experience.
Yes you can as long as you are aware of the times and costs necessary for the development of the film in laboratory, and of the costs relative to the scanning and digitizing of negatives. The staff will provide you with a list of laboratories.
