Last Saturday marked the end of our week long photography seminar here at YWAM Los Angeles. Luis Maximiano, a talented and well known photojournalist from Brazil taught everything from the technical use of your camera & shooting techniques, to photography history, to practical advise on how to start a business. The students had class with him in the morning, and then went out to shoot every afternoon. From the Arts District to Santa Monica, they had a great time exploring Los Angeles with their cameras. They were also given an assignment where they were paired with a staff member here and asked to document in a very photojournalistic and storytelling format what an average “Day in the Life” looked like for that particular person. The students had a great time, we had a great time, and if you scroll through to the bottom you can see some exciting news about the future.
Here are some of the shots the students captured throughout the week:
