Photojournalism Workshop in Prague

FYI ...

I’m writing from Transitions (TOL), a non-profit journalism and media training organisation based in Prague. We thought that some of your students might be interested in our summer photojournalism course.

Each summer TOL brings together international groups of students and young journalists for practical training courses in international reporting, investigative journalism, photojournalism and new media.

An important aspect of the courses is the emphasis on practical training. We only work with trainers who have a strong track record with respected media.

The photojournalism course will be held in Prague over four days from August 4-7. Dean Cox, who will lead the course, is an international photojournalist whose portfolio includes work for The Associated Press, The New York Times, International Herald Tribune, EurasiaNet and Bloomberg News.

The course will feature morning classroom training sessions and in the afternoons students will go out into the city to shoot. By the end of the course, each participant will have a complete, edited photo essay. And they’ll have learned to use many of the essential tools and techniques in the process.

Dean has trained on several TOL foreign correspondent courses and we’re looking forward to a successful photojournalism courses this August.

More information can be found on our website:

I’d naturally be happy to answer any questions that you or your students might have about the course. Thank you in advance for your interest in TOL’s courses; any help in disseminating the information is much appreciated.
