The 2007 edition of the Southern Short Course in News Photography is skedded for April 13-15 in Chattannooga, Tenn. There are a lot of sessions on multimedia storytelling this year, along with sessions on portfolio building and critiques, sports photography, career advancement and building respect. And on top of that, the speakers will include Lisa Krantz, Region 8 Photographer of the Year (and a BRILLIANT visionary and storyteller) and Chris Ranier from National Geographic.
Short courses like this are great opportunities to network, get fired up, show your work (and have it shredded – which is a GOOD thing) and learn a lot in a short time span. If you are at all serious abour a career in photojournalism, you must go.
