Photography for NGOs
Photography workshops for NGOs cover all the essential theory and technical instruction of our Basic Photo and Video workshop, with a specific
focus on the use of visual media for advocacy and documentation. Workshops for NGOs also cover the basics of file management and use for different
output media (web and print resolution guidelines) and a brief overview of legal considerations (copyright and permissions). Below is an outline for a
standard 2 1/2 day Photography for NGOs workshop, but classes are completely adaptable to the needs of the NGO in terms of both content and
duration so please consider this simply a example of a possible set-up.
Day one covers “the Photo” and includes all the very important things not gear related that you
need to know to make images with style & depth: timing, context, representation, approaching people, tips for self-study
and more. The class covers the basics of quality image making which relate to photos and film equally.
Day two covers “the Camera” and includes all things technical and gear related: aperture,
shutter-speeds, exposure compensation, flash, ISO, White Balance, RAW files, camera settings and more.
Day three (half day) covers the basics of file management (saving and storing), image preparation for web and print, and a brief overview
of legal issues surrounding copyright and usage permissions.
Workshops can be held at the Documentary Arts Asia Center (max. 15 students) or arrangements made to host at another location.
