Calling all photo lovers ages 18-24 yrs young! I'm pleased to announce that my friend and colleague Kevin Connelly and I will be teaching a month long photography workshop in India this summer! If you know any appropriate humans who might find this interesting please send them my way or direct them here:   https://www.pacificdiscovery.org/student-programs-semester-summer-gap-year/india-travel-photography-summer-program.aspx

Throughout the program we’ll be discussing photography techniques, working on assignments, participating in critiques, and learning how capturing images can bring us closer to people. Rather than having classroom lectures, we’ll be out in the streets, mountains and homes of the people of India learning about their culture and doing our best to understand their lifestyles. Our trip will conclude with an exhibition of our best photos in downtown Delhi at an art gallery where we can share our imagery, and discuss how the images affected us and have made our time in India so special.
