As part of CONTACT 2009, an intimate shooting workshop for both professional and amateur photographers is being held as part of the Magnum Photo Workshop Toronto.
The 5-day event is open to the public (tuition will set you back $1,250 USD) and participants will get hands-on instruction and review sessions with their choice of one of 6 Magnum Photographers (Bruno Barbey, Chien-Chi Chang, David Alan Harvey, Alex Majoli, Peter Marlow or Mark Power.) You’ll also get a pass for the week-long photo lecture series taking place each evening at The Drake Hotel.
It should be noted that this isn’t a workshop designed for beginning photographers, and students will be required to submit samples of their work for review before being accepted.
Scotiabank will be paving the way for 5 talented students to take part in this exciting event with their Scotiabank Scholarship. Applications need to be postmarked by March 20/09, so get your applications in now. Find out how, HERE.
