In this 1-day workshop students will discuss how to successfully produce international projects working outside the system and on a shoestring budget. This workshop is perfect for photographers who are committed to issues, have a passion for photography and multimedia storytelling and who are trying to figure out how to get their projects off the ground. Topics to be discussed include working on a minimal or non-existent budget, how and what to research before leaving, working with NGOs, working in conflict zones without press or media behind you, establishing good relationships in the communities where you are working and working with multimedia. The instructor, Mark Brecke, has worked around the world covering humanitarian issues. He is accustomed to working on the periphery without major support from the media or other organizations.
