Gerd Ludwig is teaming up with former National Geographic Director of Photography Kent Kobersteen to teach a masterclass at the Sun Valley Center for the Arts from September 30 – October 5, 2016. They will also present a joint lecture the night before, on September 29.
Participants in the masterclass will be challenged to produce their very best work on subjects about which they feel strongly. Students will select a subject and shoot an essay during the week. The daily work will be critiqued by Ludwig and Kobersteen, and suggestions will be offered. In addition, Ludwig and Kobersteen will give presentations of their and other photographers’ work to make instructive points and to inspire.
Kent Kobersteen was Director of Photography and Senior Editor at National Geographic magazine from February 1998 until January 2005. He joined the National Geographic in 1983 as a picture editor. Kent currently conducts photographic workshops and lectures internationally on the philosophy, ethics, and business of photojournalism.
In the evening presentation on September 29, Gerd Ludwig will speak about several of his projects for the National Geographic Magazine and show his work. Kent Kobersteen will speak about the Geographic’s philosophy of photographic communication and present a show in which three National Geographic photographers show their work and talk about their working methods.
