Six days prior to the World Press Photo Award Days kick off in Amsterdam, I received an email that I was chosen as one of the 12 participants for the Canon – “Storytelling after dark” workshop. Immediately I booked a bus ticket to head over!
Not only the workshop was amazing, to be able to work with Magdalena Hererra (Director of Photography GEO France) and Ziv Koren (Photographer and Canon Ambassador), meeting new & likeminded people is always the best!
On top of everything we had full access to all talks, lectures, panel discussions. And parties.
For the overnight assignment I visited a local fire department. I took pictures of the “real” behind the scenes: in their words, 90% of the time theres not much to do accept to hang around. Thanks again for letting me in!
