Our nonprofit workshop in Los Angeles has become one of our most popular programs. The city is alive with nonprofit activity and has a diversity of cultures like no other place in America. Last year’s workshop created outstanding imagery and multimedia products for the local nonprofits and we are elated for the 2021 workshop when we can finally all be together again!
When you register for this workshop, Momenta will assign you or help you find a nonprofit organizations to work with in L.A. based on pre-workshop questionnaires. If you want to find your own nonprofit partner for the week, we think that’s a great learning experience. But don’t worry! If you choose this route, our staff will guide you every step of the way if you choose to find your own assignment.
One of the most exciting features of a Momenta Project workshop is the ability to use a loaner camera system from our Official Camera Sponsor, Sony. You will have the opportunity to take out a range of cameras and lens kits for your photo story on this workshop. If you have a Sony already, we likely will have some fun photo, audio or video gear you’ve never tried before to use with your own equipment. It’s a great chance to experience documentary photography and multimedia production in a whole new way.
Every day of the workshop, Momenta instructors will help you develop a photo story close to your personal vision. We do this through daily 1-on-1 editing with you and an instructor for about one hour. Lectures, portfolio presentations, and pre-recorded seminars will help round out the experience.
Our workshop experience ends with a final slideshow on Friday night where we invite the nonprofit staff, friends and family, the Sony team members on site as well as our students and staff. It’s a celebratory event that will live in your memory and your heart for years to come!
