Project Puerto Rico 2022
After our company co-founder returned from teaching this workshop in 2018, Jamie was quoted as saying, “This was one of the most profoundly moving workshop experiences we have had in ten years of Momenta.” The nonprofit staff and Momenta photographers worked side-by-side to illustrate the dedication and passion of the people of Puerto Rico for the past two years and this coming workshop is sure to produce equally powerful work.
Momenta stands with its fellow citizens. As the people of the island continue on their path to recovery from the hurricane, the devastating earthquakes of 2019-2020, and COVID-19, Momenta will be there to document the island’s resilience and take part in the recovery. 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 in Puerto Rico. On this inspirational workshop, you will be matched with a local nonprofit to create a powerful photo essay about their staff and all their efforts to fulfill their mission. We will have lectures, hands-on instruction, as well as daily one-on-one editing sessions. We will end our week together with a celebratory slideshow of the amazing nonprofits from your projects for the public!

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.
