saint petersburg masterclass

In March 2010, the NOOR Foundation organized the annual NOOR-Nikon Masterclass in Documentary Photography in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

Fifteen young documentary photographers and photojournalists hailing from seven different countries were selected and gathered at the Foundation of Informational and Cultural Projects “Foto Departament”, to team up with three NOOR photographers.

During a five-day intense workshop, a host of information about the profession was shared in sessions in which professional experiences were discussed, personal portfolios were reviewed and editing skills improved. The participants worked on a story around the theme of ‘climate change’ in preparation of the class, in line with NOOR’s climate change group project. The project was accompanied by a public lecture.

The annual NOOR-Nikon Masterclass in Documentary Photography is realized with the generous support of Nikon Europe BV.
