The Kalish Workshop

The Kalish Workshop is an inspirational and intense five-day experience in editing visual storytelling. It is designed to benefit anyone who touches photography with a narrative storyline for online and print.

It is a hands-on, collaborative learning environment with daily in-depth discussions and exercises about the best practices to edit, produce and publish successful multimedia and interactive stories. Most faculty attend every session and are accessible to participants (AKA Kalish Kampers) the entire week, making the workshop unique and rewarding in a casual environment.

The end goal: The workshop engages participants to develop an exceptional eye for excellence in visual editing, its value, the process and its purpose in the workplaces of the participants.

The registration fee is $750. Applications require a deposit of $100. Balance is due on April 30, 2014. (No refunds can be made after April 30.) Apply online.
