Product information "The Reportage Rundown"

Product description:

Alex McBride is a photojournalist based in Juba, South Sudan. Having been shooting across east and central Africa for the past three years, he is constantly thrown in and out of new situations where he has to put together an interesting, engaging and beautiful collection of photographs under tight time constraints. In this two-day workshop Alex will share his techniques and tips taken from his experience in shooting for wire agencies like AFP and Getty Images, and give you a reportage-style photo assignment that will challenge you to put together a cohesive series of images that serve their purpose for news but done with elegance and artistry.

Level: Intermediate

Aim: To introduce the participants to the world of world-class news and feature photography with its tight turnarounds, snappy story-telling and beautiful pictures that capture the human experience. This is a great class either for those who are thinking of moving into the field of photojournalism, or for those who want to work on giving their photographs an edgy but beautiful news-feature look and feel. Expect a true-to-life style assignment on the Day 2 with shooting, editing, retouching, captioning and filing with support (and high pressure!) from your newsroom editor.

Attendees need to be able to do the following:

  • Confidently take photographs with either their own digital camera and/or a digital camera loaned by Leica

  • Upload and edit their photographs on their own laptop or PC (which they need to bring/have access to during the workshop)

Attendees need to be sufficiently physically active to spend time on their feet photographing. 

About Alex:

Alex is a photographer covering political, military and humanitarian issues across the Eastern and Central parts of the African continent. His work has appeared in publications such as Al-Jazeera, BBC, Citylab (The Atlantic), Politico, Vanity Fair Italy, Vice and Wired among others.

If payment for the workshop is not received in advance, we regret that the participant will not be able to attend.

The Leica Akademie reserves the right to cancel or alter any workshop. All workshop dates and times are subject to change, but Leica will endeavour to ensure workshops are held on the committed dates/times, unless there are exceptional circumstances, such as the tutor being unable to attend due to illness, or other unforeseen circumstances. Leica will inform the participants with as much notice as possible on these occasions.

Should a cancellation become necessary by the Leica Akademie, the attendee will have the choice of attending an alternative workshop (and where this is of a lower price, Leica will refund the difference), or withdrawing from the workshop and, where applicable, accepting a refund of all monies paid for that specific workshop to Leica Camera Ltd.

In the event that the specific tutor is unable to attend due to illness or other circumstances beyond Leica’s control, then the workshop will be cancelled, if no suitable replacement tutor can be arranged.

For complimentary workshops, the workshop will be rearranged to another date and the attendee offered a place on that alternative date.

No cancellation penalties (including travel expenses to and from the workshop, or accommodation costs) will be paid out in the event of workshop cancellations by Leica Akademie.
