NOOR & Tbilisi Photo Festival are excited to invite you for Original Masterclass in the remote village of Shenako, 2000 meters high in the Greater Caucasus mountain range. This awe-inspiring hamlet of shepherds and horsemen was chosen for its breathtaking landscape and its photographic legacy in the name of Shalva Alkhanaidze, whose brilliant mid-20th century images of Tushetian life reveal a world of raw passion and somber frankness.

 

The Masterclass aims both to help photographers develop a personal photographic language and to discover Georgia by exploring one of its most enchanting regions.

 

During these six days, Yuri will collaborate closely with each photographer on developing and refining their individual photographic stories. He will also share with participants his professional expertise and discuss the ethics of “getting close”. The workshop will include theoretical discussions, portfolio reviews and practical shooting assignments, making this workshop a fascinating learning experience.

 

At this Masterclass, Yuri will also present his stories  produced for the world’s leading publications. He will focus on editing and image sequencing and discuss how to get into places, how not to run after spot news and tell the story that is unseen. He will also explain how to approach personal stories and stay human to the subjects of your story.

 

 

THE TBILISI PHOTO FESTIVAL

 

The Tbilisi Photo Festival was launched in 2010, in partnership with Les Rencontres d’Arles. It is the first annual international photography festival in the Caucasus and has proven to be not only the most respected festival of photography in the region but one of the most highly esteemed cultural events in the Caucasus.

 

TBILISI PHOTO FESTIVAL Masterclasses takes pride in ensuring that participants are completely taken care of from the moment of their arrival until the time of departure. This year, Tbilisi Photo Festival has partnered with AtlasGlobal Airlines, who will provide all participants a 30 percent discount on flights from every European city to Tbilisi.

  

The philosophy of these Masterclasses is to combine a friendly atmosphere in a country where people are famous for their hospitality with hard-working sessions to give shape to one’s inner eye. Developing photographic language requires being engaged on the ground and understanding how crucial editing is to creating a coherent series. 

 

Participants will be driven up to an elevation of 2000 meters along a breathtaking road through the Tusheti National Park to Shenako, where they will be lodged at a family-run guest house. Days will be spent exploring ancient villages made of slate, stone and wood with respect to local customs and traditions (a mix of Christian and pre-Christian paganism). In these protected areas settlements cling impossibly to the sides of mountains while the people are true mountaineers who have been forging their lives in tune with the rugged natural environment for generations. Participants will be flown out of Shenako by helicopter, weather permitting.

 

 

 

WHO CAN JOIN THIS WORKSHOP?

  

Anyone who has a passion for the still image: professional and amateur photographers, artists and students of photography and art.

 

We believe that every individual has the capacity to build their own visual language when passion for the imageco-exist with the proper guidance.

 

FINAL PRESENTATION

 

Each participant will prepare a slideshow from the final selection of their work, with the assistance of their instructors. These slideshows will be publicly projected on the last evening of the Masterclass on a wide screen. For Shenako’s residents, it will be the first ever public photography screening in the village and a unique opportunity to see firsthand their guest’s perceptions of their remarkable world.

    call for applications: international diploma

     

    The Danish School of Media and Journalism, NOOR Images, and the World Press Photo Foundation join forces in a new international diploma program for documentary photographers and photojournalists

     

    Three of the major players within documentary photography and photojournalism are collaborating on an international diploma program in documentary photography. The program is designed to equip participants with skills to work effectively in the new media economy.

     

    The transforming media landscape has rapidly decreased opportunities in editorial assignments for visual journalists. This means that the skill set of documentary photographers and photojournalists has to change.

     

    That is why the Danish School of Media and Journalism (DMJX), NOOR Images, and the World Press Photo Foundation, have joined forces to launch a Diploma in Documentary Photography - thereby combining outstanding educational formats and content from DMJX, instruction from the world renowned documentary photographers of NOOR Images, and the World Press Photo Foundation's unique insight into current industry practices and debates.

     

    The diploma program is approved by the Danish Ministry of Education making it a formal program within the international ECTS-system. At the same time the program is geared for enabling students to work in the real world, which is a key focus for the partners, who want to refine the skills of those already working with documentary photography, as well as those working with journalism or communication in other ways, whom have some visual media skills and ambitions.

     

    A complete diploma – or single modules

    The diploma education consists of different modules and it is possible for participants to finish a complete diploma by combining modules that fit their needs and wishes. In addition, it is possible to take a single module or selected modules if participants want to learn more about a particular topic.

     

    The first course will begin in May 2017 and cover Documentary Photography Projects. The second course, The Short Documentary Film, is scheduled for the fall.

     

    “As a documentary photographer you can’t just rely on assignments or tasks coming to you. You have to be able to develop, research, pitch, fund, plan and edit a photojournalistic story. Or to put it in another way: You have to be able to make your own story, that’s the focus of the first course,

     

    says Søren Pagter, head of the popular photojournalism education at DMJX, and continues:

     

    In the second course the students learn to supplement still photos and moving images with video and sound thereby strengthening the visual storytelling toolbox.”

     

    Projects and individual coaching

    A feature of the courses is that students will create actual projects during the course and receive individual coaching before, during and after the production of their story.

     

    The first course starts and ends with workshops in Amsterdam, and students will work on their projects in the time in between.

     

    “We, at NOOR, believe that it’s part of our mission to encourage and support photojournalism and documentary photographers around the world. Education is an important tool to tell stories that will impact humanity, raise awareness, and enhance a better and free understanding of the world,”

     

    explains Clément Saccomani, managing director from the NOOR Foundation.

     

    Three other courses are being developed and will be announced in the fall of 2017. They cover photographing people, reaching audiences with ones work, and business skills.
