Learn Documentary Storytelling at the Hellenic Center for Photography

Through the workshop, aspiring photographers will be able to develop their skills in documentary photography, working on their own projects.

The Hellenic Center for Photography is offering a 3.5 month workshop teaching documentary storytelling to aspiring photographers.

The course is aimed at individuals with working knowledge of the basic principles of photography, who are looking to develop their skills and understanding of using photography to document reality, and create narratives through images.

Together with classroom time, participants will hone their skills in the field, working on personal projects. The instructor, a highly experienced professional photographer, will provide expert guidance on all stages of the development and execution of a project, including researching stories, technical aspects and editing bodies of work to create coherent narratives.

Should they choose, participants will also have the option of augmenting their works with audio and video, creating multi-layered cross media projects.

“The ultimate goal is for participants to work intensively on a new or existing photographic work and to creatively use classic or more innovative narrative tools, enhancing their skills and the quality of their photography,” the HCP writes.

The workshop will run from March 16 to June 29 and include 12 three-hour classroom sessions held at the Hellenic Center of Photography in Koukaki. The lessons will be provided in Greek.
