noor-nikon academy upcoming workshops

 

NOOR Foundation and Nikon are excited to announce our 2017 educational program - the NOOR-Nikon Academy. Early this spring, the NOOR-Nikon Academy will launch with a series of free-of-charge workshops for young, aspiring documentary photographers taking place in The Netherlands, Germany, France and the United Kingdom.

 

During each of the four-day trainings, 15 participants, together with three NOOR member photographers will share experiences, work on portfolios, improve editing skills and learn how to develop visual stories.

Participants can get the most out of the experience when they come to the workshop with a body of work they are currently developing, editing, working on and/or thinking about how to share with audiences. Thus, applicants are encouraged to include this work and indicate what they want to explore in relation to the work in their application portfolio and motivation statement.

Participants can look forward to intensive communication with NOOR photographers and their peers on subjects ranging from how to develop and edit a photographic story or project, to the nuances of the international photo market.

 

 

The NOOR-Nikon Academy is a unique opportunity to learn impactful visual storytelling, further develop personal vision, strengthen ongoing projects and gain new knowledge and contacts in an intimate and interactive environment.

 

Each workshop is led by a diverse and unique combination of three NOOR member photographers. All experienced teachers and lecturers, NOOR photographers are actively engaged in their own documentary practices, current debates in the field and in the development of the next generation of photographic talent.

 

 

Since 2009 NOOR and Nikon have partnered on education programs encouraging and supporting young photographic talent around the world. We have built strong collaborations with an international network of young photographers, photography professionals, cultural organizations, journalism and educational institutions. NOOR-Nikon educational programs have successfully trained more than 175 students from more than 64 different countries and counting.

Reactions from previous NOOR-Nikon educational programs:

 

“Photography is part education and part evolution of one’s talent. This was my first workshop and it was an enriching experience. I learned more in these days than probably I could have learned in a year working in the field.”

 

   - Bogdan Chesaru, Romania (NOOR-Nikon Masterclass, Bucharest, Romania)

 

“The workshop was fantastic! Meeting with NOOR photographers and very talented people from our region is a great opportunity. You should continue organizing programs for regional cooperation among young photographers. I got great tips about storytelling, editing, grants and bookmaking!”

 

   - Ozge Sebzeci, Turkey (NOOR-Nikon Masterclass, Istanbul, Turkey)

 

“The masterclass helped to draw an overall picture of my career. The experiences shared by NOOR helps to make a long-term plan.”
