David’s workshops aren’t for the faint of heart or those who do not want to push through personal boundaries. He is part supporter, part instigator and all professional, delivering each comment at the precise moment and knowing confidently what he can get out of each student. I’ll never look through the viewfinder again without hearing his voice questioning why I’ve raised the camera at that moment and how I plan to tell the story. – Christopher Edwards

HARVEY

David Alan Harvey, Magnum Photographer and founder of Burn Magazine is a highly sought after mentor and teacher. His workshops are philosophical explorations into the heart of your work and motivation. They are about your own personal growth. A champion of authorship and voice he seeks out your personal obstacles and gives you a good shove to move yourself beyond them, then greets you with a high five and a beer on the other side. As anyone who has taken one of David’s workshops will tell you, once you take a workshop with him, you are essentially his student for life. He sticks with those who want to move ahead with their work for book publishing, gallery shows, etc. If you do the work, he will be there to help you push it forward.

WORKSHOPS

In his weeklong workshops you will be asked to shoot an essay of your own choosing. Each day you shoot, each morning there is a group review and critique session. At the end of the week his team produces a slideshow of the work created. So, in this short week you get the experience of being a working photographer, shooting, working with an editor and experiencing the pressure of a real deadline. Each workshop is different, but depending on the timing and location you may also enjoy guest teachers that include picture editors and curators, jam sessions with other iconic photographers and the occasional field trip to shoot alongside David.


"Take David's workshop if you want to stop taking tourist photos. You'll never approach photography the same way again."
- Roddy MacLeod

A few comments from last year’s NYC workshop: 

David’s workshops aren’t for the faint of heart or those who do not want to push through personal boundaries. He is part supporter, part instigator and all professional, delivering each comment at the precise moment and knowing confidently what he can get out of each student.

A truly inspirational process from start to finish! – Kevin J Mellis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada

David is one of the most insightful & inspiring teachers I have ever had. He is demanding but cares immensely about the work of his pupils. Throughout the workshop he encouraged us to push ourselves. I achieved some of my best work in his class. – Sandra Cattaneo Adorno

David’s 2016 NYC workshop was the most incredible week for me. Not only did his guidance and opinions give my own judgement and understanding of what makes a great picture a well needed boost, we were privileged to meet some of his inspiring collaborators. I pushed my own work into new and exciting areas and upon my return to the UK, I purged my portfolio of many images I now deemed under par, surely the most telling evidence of the workshop’s effect on me. – Neil Buchan-Grant
