I had the great opportunity of attending the Eddie Adams workshop in Jeffersonville, NY a few weeks back. Although I personally had some setbacks, it was a great experience overall. It was amazing to be surrounded by so many great photographers and to have the chance to meet and mingle with a lot of them.
I was a part of the Green Team with editor Jamie Wellford of Newsweek, leader Ami Vitale and producer Leah Latella. Our topic was environmental issues. My two day assignment was at Apple Pond Farm, a farm that uses many environmentally positive practices. I wanted my story to say something about consumerism and the power of do-it-yourself farming and sustainable energy vs. American consumer culture, but that didn't really pan out. In the end though, I came home with some nice images that Sonja and Dick at Apple Pond were glad to have.
