Truth With A Camera Workshop

This note came in from Josh Metzler about the Truth With A Camera workshop, well worth investigating as I've heard many positive things about it ...

Truth With A Camera will be held here in Guadalajara, Mexico at the end of May. We're very excited about the workshop, which continues a 15-year tradition in the workshop which has before been held in Norfolk, VA. The course, a weeklong intensive photojournalism course, will pair American students with Mexican journalism students as they spend the week covering a story found in one of the partnering local NGOs on topics ranging from healthcare, migration, and children's rights. At the end of the week, a small portfolio of images will be donated to the NGOs for their use.

The course, which is designed for undergrad and grad journalism students, is affordable (around $1100) and is nearly filled. The deadline is fast approaching and we hope to fill it up very soon. I hope that you'll get a chance to pass the info around and mention it to your classes this week. I really appreciate it.

Here's the site for more info and for registering.
