Live online class in German co-presented with Forum Journalismus und Medien Wien (fjum) in Vienna, Austria. This class will be presented entirely in German.

In diesem live online Fotografie-Workshop lernen Sie, mit Bildern Geschichten zu erzählen. Der Schwerpunkt liegt dabei auf journalistischer Dokumentar- und Reportage-Fotografie, sowie aussagekräftige Portraits von Menschen in ihrer Umgebung zu machen. Gemeinsam wird analysiert, wie eine gute Fotoreportage aufgebaut ist. Durch Hands-On-Übungen mit der Kamera zwischen den Online-Sessions setzen Sie das Gelernte um und verbessern so ihr fotografisches Storytelling. Arbeiten historischer, wie zeitgenössischer Dokumentarfotograf*innen werden besprochen, um Sie für Ihre eigenen Fotoprojekte zu inspirieren.


Anja's course helped me to get out of my comfort zone and grow as a photographer — the assignments and the feedback helped me to be more honest about my work and challenge myself more. I cannot stress enough how useful her courses would be for anyone looking to improve as a storyteller and photographer. I really enjoyed the interactive part where you can speak and see the other people in class in real time — it really brings up the learning experience.

Anja's class helped me much more than I was expecting. I was a bit lost in proceeding with my raw idea in the beginning, but the classmates from diverse backgrounds were there with me along the whole journey, sometimes as a critic and sometimes as a supporter, and their thoughtful feedback pushed me forward a lot. I recommend Anja's online classes to anyone who wants diverse feedback and the intimacy of the classroom experience.
