Thank you to the 2012 selection committee for inviting me to be one of a 100 of photographers in the 25th Anniversary class of the esteemed Eddie Adams Workshop. I’m honored and grateful for the opportunity to connect with and learn from such an amazing community of leading professionals.
The Eddie Adams Workshop is an intense four-day gathering of the top photography professionals, along with 100 carefully selected students. The photography workshop is tuition-free, and the 100 students are chosen based on the merit of their portfolios.
A panel of over 30 judges selected 100 applications (50 students and 50 professionals).
Eddie Adams, a pulitzer-prize winning photojournalist:
…covered 13 wars, beginning with a stint as a Marine Corps combat photographer in Korea in the early 1950s and ending in Kuwait in 1991. He did three tours of Vietnam with the Associated Press and won the Pulitzer Prize for photography for his shot of a Viet Cong lieutenant being executed at close range on a Saigon street by a South Vietnamese general.”
