Today we’ve been on an amazing workshop/lecture with Donald Weber, VII Photo Network photographer.
He was really great and we’ve definitely learned a lot about making serious photo stories, editing them and working with photo agencies. Beside that, we’ve been looking at some good examples of photo projects by various photographers. I was blown away especially by the amazing Christopher Morris and his photo essay “My America”, and notes from British photographer Tony Ray-Jones (more about this topic and content from his notebooks in near future, it deserves a special blog post).
This is the second time in last 15 days that Donald Weber was in Belgrade, and he was so generous to share with us huge amount of his knowledge and experiences from photography field. Thanks to him we had a great portfolio review a week and a half ago, and this weekend we had this workshop in the office of Media Photographers Association of Serbia. After that, in the evening we had an informal meeting, four of us with some other local photographers, foggy and cold night on Belgrade streets with a standard amount of tea and alcohol (you can see that Zeljko still smokes; and four of us in the pub, having discussion about some post-production things – photos by Srđan Kalinić).
