Lights, Camera, Reflect: Using Photography To Tell Your Nonprofit Story


Lights, Camera, Reflect: Using Photography To Tell Your Nonprofit Story

This one-hour workshop is designed to equip nonprofit employees with the technical and narrative skills to document their nonprofits' efforts and to properly tell the stories of the communities they work with. We will go over basic photography concepts and practice them with activities, and also discuss photography ethics and best practices. The workshop will be very interactive - we will be practicing interviewing, working with light, portraiture techniques, and documentary/storytelling/narrative techniques. Participants are encouraged to have their cameras ready, but they can also learn everything using their camera phones.

Cole Montgomery is a photographer and arts educator for ten years working extensively to help nonprofits tell their stories, and training long-term community stakeholders in documentary practices. He lived in Bangkok, Thailand, establishing photography programs for several grassroots nonprofits, and for the past six years has been with Venice Arts, enabling middle and high school students to create year-long projects about family and identity, which culminate in self-published books and exhibitions. He has a Master's degree in photography from Cal State Northridge.
