SANTA FE WORKSHOPS - Santa Fe, NM: May 17 - 26

BROOKS INSTITUTE - Ventura, CA: August 16 - 25

MAINE MEDIA WORKSHOPS - Rockport, ME: October 13 - 19

A 21st century digital storyteller has to be producer, writer, camera, sound, editor, and everything else. Just like the millennia-old Platypus, a mashup of otter, duck, and beaver, has evolved and survived, so must the modern photojournalist.

This class teaches you how to find a story, how to interview, how to shoot video sequences that keep your audience enthralled, and how to edit it all together.

During the workshop you'll learn how to be a digital storyteller using DSLR cameras, compact lights, wireless microphones, and professional editing software. The class is led by one of the icons of photojournalism, Dirck Halstead, formerly Time Magazine's Senior White House photographer. Dirck was an early visionary in the convergence of stills and video journalism and produced video stories for such venues as Nightline. Also contributing their knowledge and experiences are Beth Corwin, an award winning network news cameraperson, and Tom Wolsky, one of the gurus of Final Cut Pro.

This workshop is hands on and filled with professional tips, tricks, and solutions, as well as exemplary and inspiring work - it will change your life.

The Platypus Workshop has trained hundreds of photojournalists in the art of Video Storytelling since 1999.
