Elizabeth Krist: Photographing with Intention, with Lynn Johnson

Date: October 1-4, 2020
Event: Photographing with Intention: A Weekend Masterclass
Instructors: Lynn Johnson and Elizabeth Krist

This workshop provides the rare opportunity for a small group of students to come together with award-winning National Geographic contributing photographer Lynn Johnson and editor Elizabeth Krist to explore the creative process of photography.


Emphasis will be placed on the concept of “working with intention,” with a focus on critical skills of photographic image making, sensitivity to light, design of the frame, and the power of the emotional moment. Most importantly, we will discuss how to get “unstuck” creatively so you can advance your personal style and build visually driven projects.


Leica is offering one person a scholarship for the workshop, as well as student and military discounts.

Sarah Leen, Lauren Steel, Elizabeth Krist: Eddie Adams Workshop

Date: October 9-11, 2020
Location: Online
Event: Eddie Adams Workshop
Team Leader: Sarah Leen    

Reviewers: Lauren Steel, Elizabeth Krist

The Eddie Adams Workshop is a tuition-free photojournalism seminar for photographers at the start of their career, who submit portfolios for consideration. One hundred participants selected solely on the merit of their pictures team up with top professional photographers and editors for a gathering that includes assignments, portfolio reviews, and presentations. The Workshop began in 1988 with the goal to redress the exclusivity of professional opportunities by accepting students based on their demonstrated skills, and not on their ability to pay tuition. The all-volunteer faculty and staff, many of whom are alumni, are passionate about the mission and donate their time and expertise. The Workshop, with chief support from Nikon, has an unparalleled history of nurturing talent, exchanging ideas, and building relationships.

Time: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Event: Workshop and Editing
Editing: Elizabeth Cheng Krist

In this workshop, participants will gain insights from a diverse range of industry experts on advancing their project towards targeted presentation.

Through classroom talks and interactive demonstrations, you will learn the nuances of editing your photographs. Krist will work with each participant to edit images brought to the workshop, helping you to reveal the heart of your project.
