Workshop: Rob Hornstra’s DIY Storytelling – 20th & 21st Oct

Sunday (5 of 7)

Join Rob Hornstra for a two-day intensive workshop for photographers and storytellers who wish to learn how to construct and carry out long-term photography projects. Since 2009, photographer Hornstra and writer Arnold van Bruggen have collaborated on The Sochi Project, documenting the Russian city of Sochi before it enters the global spotlight as the site of the 2014 Winter Olympics. In this workshop, Hornstra will share his insight into the funding and marketing of a self-published photo project.

“Many ambitious photographers are conservative when it comes to presenting their projects, offering their work – often free of charge – to newspapers, magazines, or book publishers. They put their fate in the hands of others and wait,” says Hornstra. “That’s unnecessary. Do it yourself.”

Over the course of two days, he will outline how the Internet and digital printing techniques have opened up endless possibilities for self-published work. The curriculum will also address how to attract an audience to your project, collaboration between photographers and writers, and the process of “slow journalism.” This workshop’s main objective is to help students become liberated photographers and publishers, ready to begin sharing their stories with the world.

Rob has run this workshop all over the world and this is a great opportunity to take part in it in England, as part of the Brighton Photo Fringe. Some comments from past participants…

“This inside information is what I came for.”

“Most valuable were the practical and hands on tips on how to make and publish a big project.”

“It will help me in planning & organizing to get my work out into the world.”

“It was my first workshop with another author and I couldn’t have asked for a better one.”

Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st October. 10am to 5pm (both days). The Miniclick Business Concern at 68MS, 68 Middle Street, Brighton, UK, BN1 1AL. £195 per person (max 12 people).
