WPOW (Women Photojournalists of Washington) will be hosting a Women Only benefit workshop this year to help raise money for their scholarship and grant programs for 2009. Every dollar spent on this workshop directly benefits WPOW.
This amazing workshop will be taught by WPOW members Carol Guzy, multiple Pulitzer Prize and WHNPA POY winner, and Director of Photography for AOL and photographic guru Cathaleen Curtiss.
The workshop will take place at multiple locations in beautiful Bolivia with nightly lectures on the history of photography, how women have played a role in media, understanding how to take documentary images and so much more. You will photograph every day with instructors and staff helping you craft a narrative documentary essay on Andean culture and history.
WPOW members will receive a 10% discount on this trip and special discounts are available for students and working female photographers.
Momenta is working with WPOW on this fundraising trip for all the logistics. Everyone at Momenta is proud to do a benefit workshop to help build up this great nonprofit. You can find all the workshop information at http://www.momentaworkshops.com/bolivia09.php.
Please pass this along to any female photographers, professional or starting out, who would be interested or you can call me directly at 202.203.8758. As President of WPOW, I can give you all the information about how this workshop will help our organization out and how we can all benefit by supporting this great women’s nonprofit!
