DAY 1, (13/3) – WELCOME TO THE NAT GEO WORLD OF STEVE WINTER

In the morning, you are welcomed by Steve Winter to this digital workshop where he will inspire you –– and help you develop your work.

Our days together begin with Steve bringing us along on his journey, which began with the dream of photographing for National Geographic and sent him around the world on assignment for the magazine for the past 25 years.

During the morning session, Steve will show his photographs, including some of his most iconic images. You will hear the stories behind the pictures and follow him through the creative process. He will offer details on everything from photo equipment and technique to gaining permissions, collaborating with experts and safety. Using his images as examples, he will discuss composition, camera settings and use of flash to specific effects. You’ll also see the outtakes: Steve will show pictures that didn’t work, explain what went wrong and what he did to avoid the same mistake.

There will be interaction throughout, with questions and discussion welcome as Steve offers concrete tips on how to expand your vision and technique, with many takeaways for your own work.

The workshop  will be held on the ZOOM app, which can be downloaded for free to your computer or mobile.

 

DAY 2, (14/3) – PORTFOLIO REVIEWS AND CREATIVE DISCUSSIONS

Our second day begins with Steve talking about the editing process. Using his own work, he’ll share important considerations in selecting your best images.

This is the perfect opportunity to get feedback on your work from one of the world’s foremost photographers.

STEVE WINTER

STEVE WINTER

Steve Winter is among the world’s leading wildlife photographers. He’s photographed wildlife, including big cats, on assignment for National Geographic Magazine for the last 25 years. That work earned him top awards, including BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year and BBC Wildlife Photojournalist of the Year. He is a two-time winner of Picture of the Year International’s Global Vision Award and won awards from World Press Photo in 2008, 2014 and 2020. Steve feels that he has a great responsibility to show and excite readers about wildlife  and the natural world. But he also wants to tell their story, documenting their beauty and behavior as well as the people who live beside them, the threats that face them—and conservation efforts to save them. His goal: to give people a reason to care. Above all, he wants to give the readers of National Geographic what he always wanted: a front-row seat next to the photographers, part of the team along for the adventure.
