Visual Journalism Seminars in Athens

To kick off the, ahem, Tenth Annual UGA Photojournalism Weekend Workshop, we will have a series of talks on Thursday, February 26, on issues related to photojournalism, multimedia journalism and working as an independent journalist. The sessions will be in Studio 100 on the first floor of Grady College here in Athens, Georgia, and are open to all.

  • 2:30Organizing Multimedia Projects: Emmy-award winning multimedia journalist Mike Roy will talk about how he stays on top of large projects like his stories on the Tick Tock Diner and Saving Shabazz
  • 3:15Working with Nonprofits: Katye Martens, multimedia and photography editor for the Pew Charitable Trusts, will talk about the relationship between independent photojournalists and nonprofit organizations
  • 4:00Marketing Yourself: Robin Nathan will talk about building an audience and finding work through marketing campaigns
  • 4:45Accentuate the Available: Mike Haskey, chief photographer for the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer, will talk about using small, shoe mount lights to bring a little life to under-lit scenes

At approximately 5:30 we will have a renaming ceremony for the workshop and thank an alumnus who will be funding the event going forward.
