Learn to tell stories through pictures from three of L.A.’s top photojournalists during their inaugural Venice Beach Photo Workshop, a daylong instructional walking tour of the boardwalk, canals and hidden walk streets of Venice.
Ted Soqui (The Argonaut, LA Weekly, Time, Robert Berman Gallery) and Jonathan Alcorn (Reuters, Getty Images, The New York Times) lead the hands-on workshop, which also includes a lunch discussion with Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Nick Ut. While a Vietnam War correspondent, Ut captured the unforgettable photograph of a girl running from a napalm attack that has become an iconic representation of the horrors of war. Soqui covered the Los Angeles riots.
The day starts at 11:30 a.m. at Alcorn’s Venice Boulevard studio and wraps up on the beach at dusk after visits to the Venice Beach graffiti and skate parks as well as the Venice Beach Freakshow. Tuition is $200; bring your own camera and enough memory card space for hundreds of pictures.
