“The one-on-ones, the professionalism, knowledge, and experience the instructors possess gave a real sense they want us to grow and learn. Momenta had really taken my needs into account when pairing me up (with a nonprofit). It was a perfect fit and a joy to experience.”
“I had just started on my photography journey and found Momenta Workshops. I went on their workshop to Myanmar, (aka Burma) with Jamie and Seth. At the time, I was only focused on the pictures I was taking then. I stopped today to look back on the photos from that trip in 2009 and to think how much more they gave me. Now, I am a full-time freelance news photojournalist. Thank you Momenta for all that you do for the photography community and world.”
“I can’t say enough good things about Momenta! The Project India nonprofit workshop was life changing because it made me a better photographer. However, the Bali workshop was life changing because it made me a better photographer and a better person. I would go on a Momenta workshop again in a heartbeat!”
“With the caveat that there were a plethora of things I loved about my experience with Momenta, the one thing that stood out to me was the spirit of collaboration and comradery that the Momenta team created. The instructors freely shared knowledge and were invested in our success.”
“If you are considering a career in humanitarian photography or want to know how to approach NGOs for work, this workshop is for you. Jamie and the panelists share their practical real world knowledge and show you how to fund your dream projects. At this cost, it’s a no-brainer.”
“It was everything I had imagined and more. The business lecture was incredible. I’m so thrilled to have been apart of a Momenta workshop, and I will do my very best to do another one soon!”
“If you’re looking for a way for your photography to help make a difference, and to continue your education on editorial and documentary photography, I can’t speak highly enough of Momenta. I started out with a 1-Day workshop on The Business of Nonprofit Photography and fell in love with the group which had me participating in Project Los Angeles last year. I love being a part of their family!”
“Having the freedom to pursue Liberty’s Kitchen’s story without the pressure of there being a financial exchange was a truly great experience. Being there in thanks to The Lori Minden Tancer Award, I knew I had to make the absolute most of my experience and I really feel like I did. I got up with the sun and kept going until way past midnight. Being able to come back to the workshop headquarters and enjoy conversation, photos, and overall good vibes added so much to the experience. It made me feel like I had a home base in a brand new part of the country. The business workshop on Sunday was really helpful. I left feeling better able to grow my own business.
“The long-lasting friendships I made with my story subjects and with the other participants was the pinnacle of my workshop experience. Knowing I was able to help enact change in the Portland community was so worthwhile!”
