Project New Orleans
This workshop is our longest-running and most popular program because New Orleans is a city unlike any other. This year has changed the city in ways not seen since Hurricane Katrina. The effects of COVID-19 have taken away many nonprofit safety nets and left their clients in serious need. As we work side-by-side to help the local nonprofits in their recovery, this workshop will be more powerful and more necessary than any we have ever seen before. Trust us when we say: your photography will never be more needed.
Momenta is deeply rooted in New Orleans.
For every year since our founding, Momenta has been working with the incredibly dedicated nonprofit teams in the Crescent City. The nonprofits benefit from your brilliant photos by using them to tell their story to the world and you will learn real-world skills to documenting humanitarian issues.
You can be a force of change.
On this inspirational workshop, you will be paired with a local nonprofit to create a powerful photo essay about their staff and all their efforts to fulfill their mission. You’ll also have a full day of educational lectures, hands-on instruction to help improve your technical skills, as well as daily one-on-one editing sessions. We will end our week together with a huge public slideshow party celebrating the amazing nonprofits from your projects!

COVID-19 NOTICE: The safety of our students and staff on the ground is paramount to us and we take it very seriously. With the situation changing so quickly, we want to ensure, when we all gather in person to support the nonprofits who desperately need us, it is the best environment for your learning and creativity as well as safety. As we prepare for all our workshops in 2021-2022, we will continue to follow city, state, and federal guidelines for safety protocols and working with our advisors to ensure every precaution possible is made. In addition to the usual safety preparations and PPE we use on our programs, we will also be implementing stringent personal and group hygiene protocols during all workshops. Since our programs are limited to small groups and are first come-first serve, we recommend putting your deposit in for the workshop program to hold your place. If you decide you’d like to transfer to another workshop in the future, we are waiving all transfer fees through January 2022 to allow you to feel most comfortable with your decision to travel with us.
