Photographing nonprofits in collaboration with Leica Camera.
Join Momenta for this very special workshop in the beautiful Pacific Northwest! Each student receives their own nonprofit assignment, based on your interests and goals for your photography. Together, we’ll work to help you create a photo story that speaks to the mission of the organization.
You’ll also get nightly lectures and a full day of orientation, inspirational portfolios, and business skills presentations.
Plus, this experience includes private daily 1-on-1 editing sessions with an instructor to go over all your photos in a focused feedback session. And you get to take out a Leica during the week to use for your photography!
Register by September 15.
This four-day, hands-on workshop will cover best practices in planning, shooting, and editing a journalistic video story. You will learn how to use a DSLR camera and a digital audio recorder to create a concise two-minute video story which you will edit using Adobe Premiere.

If you are considering pursuing a master’s degree in multimedia journalism (MMJ), participating in the boot camp can help you decide if the degree program is right for you.
