ESSAY – A Basic Photojournalism Workshop by Philippines Institute of Architects Photography Club (PIAPC) conducted by Edwin Tuyay last June 9, 2012 at the PIAPC HQ located at 65 East Capitol Drive, Pasig. It was attended by almost 20 participants.
The training started 9am. There was a coffee break, and a lunch break with yummy Chow King Lunch. At around 3pm, the lecture concluded for coffee break, and group hug. At around 3:30 pm, the group went for a photo walk towards EDSA.
The first day of the workshop is the lecture part which was held that day. The workshop was quite interesting. The essence of what Photojournalism, its code of ethics, captioning, how to make photo essays, how to get assignments from foreign publications are few of the topics discussed. Edwin, also showed his work and shared his experience while shooting them. He shared very good insights and tips about the field based on his extensive experience as a photojournalist for more two decades. An assignment of shooting an environmental portrait and a photo essay were given as well.
The second part of the workshop will be on June 16. This is where the two assignments given will be for discussion and critique by Edwin and a guest photojournalist.
Here are some of the photos and video of the workshop:
