Find a Writer, Find a Photographer

One of the purposes of the Center for Writing and Photography is to bring writers and photographers together so that each may increase his or her rate of publication for their corporate photography events. To this end, the Center publishes a quarterly newsletter, Find a Writer, Find a Photographer. Each edition contains a database of writers and photographers who want to collaborate for publication.  The database is accessible to editors, advertisers etc. who may be interested in purchasing your work.  For an additional fee, each subscriber can have his/her own page in the Web site for their portfolios.  The newsletter includes writing and photography tips and “how-to,” new markets, writing leads and ideas, and techniques.

Writing Your Travel Photography Budd Titlow

To get the most out of your travel photography, you need to think like a writer.  Every time you take a trip, pretend you’re on assignment for National Geographic.  Assemble a photographic narrative, visually describing what you see and experience.  Document the “five w’s”, the who, what, where, when and why of the place you’re visiting.  Capture the people, the architecture and the food, in addition to the scenery.  Photographs of southern France, Venice, Trinidad, Costa Rica, the Galapagos Islands, and Machu Picchu will demonstrate the approach.  No Discounts.  This workshop follows “Travel Writing”by Christine Ridout.   View his work at http://www.thewritephoto.com/budd_titlow.htm
