There is a great opportunity for second year photo students coming up. Rob Skeoch from Sony cameras is organizing a two-day “boot camp” for photographers who wish to work for a wire service one day. The dates are Sept. 30-Oct. 1. Gary Hershorn, formerly of Reuters, and Graeme Roy, director of news photography at The Canadian Press will offer years of sage advice and experience. You could not ask for two better individuals at a workshop. Highly recommended! Use this link for details.
Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist Barbara Davidson is speaking at Concordia on Sept. 14. A friend of our program who has helped many a student and who was instrumental in establishing the initial scholarship honouring her friend and colleague Shaun Best, won by 2014 grad Marta Iwanek, is giving the Keynote Homecoming address at her alma mater. Well worth the drive to see her! For details on the event, use this link.
Just a few days away now! Use the links below for first and second year timetables for Orientation Week only. We will shift to the regular class schedule on Monday, Sept. 8.
