Whether you're pitching a story to a news outlet or crafting a strong narrative for a passion project, getting the right selection of images in the right sequence can be a challenging process.

Join Walter Astrada, veteran wire photographer and winner of 3 World Press Photo awards, for an intimate one-day workshop on photo editing and sequencing, including individual portfolio reviews.

Aimed at intermediate to advanced photographers with a complete or in-progress body of work, this workshop is an opportunity to review work, develop stronger stories, and gain further insights into these processes.

Participants will be guided through the process of editing their photographs down to a presentation format, and consider the reasons why the selected images work better than others. They will then work on sequencing the selected photographs, and discuss how the order in which they are presented strengthens the story's coherence. During these exercises, Walter will review each participant's portfolio, discussing their work in detail.

Participants will leave with not only a strong sample edit, but also practical tips applicable to editing for various purposes, an improved eye for confident self-editing, greater clarity on their vision for their work, and suggestions on how they can further their projects accordingly.

Participants need to bring along a minimum of 40 and maximum of 120 photographs. The photographs are to be printed as small prints (e.g. 4R size). Participants should bring along the original jpg files as well. Basic photography proficiency is required.

Please note this workshop will be an indoor session and does not involve shooting.
