_MG_6052

Background: 

Visual reportage was born out of the desire to make a difference through photography and inspire others to do the same. Since 2007, VR has travelled the globe, partnering with NGO's, and telling the stories of interesting cultures, people and ways of life.  

Our Mission: 

To learn, live, grow and make a difference. 

LEARN 

A photographers journey never ends. We are always learning. We will never truly, 'arrive'. In light of that, our proven imaging workshops are for everyone. Whether you are a working professional or just learning how to hold your camera; whether it is your job, your hobby or what you give your life to, there is something for everyone in our workshops. They offer hands-on opportunities to develop and polish your skills as a photographer and storyteller. Each workshop provides day to day, one on one support from working professionals. They will encourage you to push boundaries, take risks and work more fully on developing your photographic vision. 

LIVE/GROW 

Our photography workshops are the best way to connect your heart to help people, your developing camera skills and your desire to see the world. You will be introduced to others of like interest and connect with them in a lasting way. In partnering with NGO's we take the stress out of coordinating the mechanics of travel arrangements, ground transportation, etc. so you can focus on making the pictures. With our amazing partners, you will be able to leave the beaten path and experience parts of our world in a way that most tourists would not. Our NGO benefits from you and you benefit from them. A win-win situation is a beautiful thing.  

MAKE A DIFFERENCE 

We believe strongly that the best of our work be used as an instrument of change; to give voice to the voiceless. Our workshops come out of a commitment to doing good, taking great photographs and having a deeply enriching expereince. 

We believe you can make a difference. Sometimes this is by documenting and photographing, sometimes this is by physically getting your hands dirtly and pitching in with the work of NGO's and other times it is by simply listening to the story of the less fortunate. There is no limit to what you are capable of and the influence you can have; with your photography as a photogrpaher and even more so with yourself as a human being. 

For 10 to 12 days we will be immersed in the local culture and explore photographic passions as we do our small part in making a big difference. 

Our invitation is simple...join us.
