This weekend marks the second annual UGA Photojournalism Weekend Workshop – three days of shooting, editing and learning. All of our Documentary Photography students, a group of industrious Introduction to Photojournalism students and lots of alumni are headed out to Walton County to shoot the town. Six professionals are joining us, as well, to help critique the students’ work.
The Monroe Art Guild has offered up their building for the weekend, so we’ll be hunkered down there looking at photos. Lots of photos. Tens of thousands of photos.
In 2006, we headed out to Morgan County, and HQ’d at the Madison-Morgan County Chamber of Commerce. There’s still a collection of photos from last year available on Grady College’s web site, worth poking through. We’ll have some updates and photos over the next few days.
(We also did a motorsports workshop last fall, spending the day at Road Atlanta for the Petit Le Mans sports car race.)
