We had a very timely reminder on FB this morning, about
our last photography workshop, in The Gambia, January 2014. Timely, because this time next week we will be holding our next workshop, in-country.

January 2014, Photography Workshop, The Gambia: The students spent most the first day in the classroom with their tutor, photographer and filmmaker, Jason Florio, where he covered the following topics: a brief history of photography; what is a photograph; portraiture; environmental portraiture; reportage; landscape photography (including showing the students images from all of our contributing photographers); guides and techniques; what makes a good photograph; rules of photography (rule of thirds, leading lines, etc.); lighting; editing…
The resulting work, by the young students, culminated in an exhibition at
Alliance Francaise, in The Gambia

Each evening, at the end of the workshop, in each region that we taught, the students’ work was
exhibited in the village.
