Portfolio or Story Review

Portfolio or Story Review – 2 hours

One to one private session

This course is for people who want to take better photographs, whether they are amateur photographers or work for NGOs, UN agencies or corporations. This course is also ideal for people with busy schedules or who are in far-flung locations. A private tutorial via Skype can be arranged or a meeting in person depending upon your location.

Book a two hour tutorial.

Upload a photo story/ portfolio of your images via WeTransfer.

We review this and then arrange a Skype call to discuss your story telling and photography techniques.

After this session you can then send us another story/ portfolio and you will get a 30 minute follow up session via email or Skype.

“Being selected “The 2013 Humanitarian Photojournalist of the Year” by Arete Stories, a global multi-media agency that trains Communications Officers, was a turning point in my career. It allowed me the rare opportunity of getting a one-on-one tutorial with a greatly respected News Photographer, Karel Prinsloo.

Since the tutorial, I continue to receive comments from my supervisors on how absolutely beautiful and unique my photographs are, and how much my photos are contributing towards the organization’s resource mobilization and advocacy efforts. As Karel advised, “Don’t be an assassin photographer! Take a minute to blend in, and wait for the moment.”
