Missouri Photo Workshop
Founded in 1949 by Cliff Edom, each year this venerable workshop attracts students and professionals alike to a small town for one week of photography. In 1983, Howard Chapnick of Camera Arts Magazine said "It is a teaching experience that many say is a four-year college education condensed into one fantastic, brutal, exhilarating, exhausting week."
Mountain Workshops
The Mountain Workshops began with a few Western Kentucky University students and has grown over the last 20 years to include national and foreign professionals. Participants shoot a complete picture story over one week and receive intense critiques from recognized professionals.
Eddie Adams Workshop
A very competitive, tuition-free, four-day program limited to 100 students or professionals with less than three years experience, the Eddie Adams Workshop requires a serious portfolio submission. The nation's top photographers and editors lead participants through assignments, panel discussions and one-on-one portfolio critiques.
