About The Eddie Adams Workshop

The Eddie Adams Workshop is an intense four-day gathering of the top professionals in photojournalism, along with 100 carefully selected students.  The Workshop's purpose is to create a forum in which an exchange of ideas, techniques, and philosophies can be shared between both established members and newcomers of the profession of picture journalism. The Workshop is tuition-free, and students are chosen based on the merit of their portfolios- not on their ability to pay.


The Workshop Board of Directors reviews students' portfolios and recommendations. From these submissions the top 100 students are chosen to participate. The 100 chosen students will be divided into 10 teams of 10.  A photographer, an editor and a researcher, all professionals within the profession of picture journalism, will lead each team. The four days are divided between shooting, editing, speeches and panel discussions. Students will have the opportunity for one-on-one time with editors to discuss their portfolios at what is known as the 11:30 Club.


The faculty, who donates their time and effort to the Workshop, are the nation's leading photographers and editors. They represent  organizations such as Time, National Geographic, The New York Times,  The Washington Post, The Associated Press, Getty, Corbis, Sports  Illustrated, Reuters, Chicago Sun-Times, Dallas Morning News, Parade,  and others.  Participating faculty in recent years has included Nancy  Andrews, Pancho Bernasconi, James Colton, Bill Frakes, David Griffin,  Todd Heisler, Vincent Laforet, Tom Kennedy, David Hume Kennerly, Vincent Laforet, David Leeson, Santiago Lyon, Melissa Lyttle, Clay Patrick McBride, Chris Ramirez, Howard Schatz, Brian Storm, Michael Williamson, Steven Wilkes, and Nick Ut.
