Open + Opening Soon Workshops
Travel Photography Workshops are the meat and bread of what The Giving Lens does. Our travel photography workshops are custom built by photographers for photographers to maximize photographic opportunities in-country, ensure an excellent partnership with the NGO (and that the work will be meaningful, inspiring, respectful, and valuable), and build in downtime to edit, share, critique, and unpack all that we see, do, and photograph. We also do what we can to stay locally, eat at local-owned spots, hire locals for tours and guiding and translating, and otherwise build ethical, responsible travel experiences. The trips have several days with an NGO doing humanitarian and documentary photography – whether documenting, teaching, or both – and more days to focus solely on travel photography. You will have two professional photography leaders with experience and expertise in both travel and different genres of photography. Read on to see what travel photography workshops we are offering this year and which might best suit you and your journey!
