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.

Dieser Kurs richtet sich an Journalist*innen, die keine gelernten Fotograf*innen sind und für ihre Geschichten eigene Fotos machen und ihr fotografisches Sehen verbessern wollen – egal ob mit Smartphone oder anderen Kameras ausgerüstet. In diesem live online Fotografie-Workshop lernen Sie, was ein gutes Bild ausmacht und wie Sie dynamische Bilder produzieren. Durch Hands-On-Übungen mit der Kamera zwischen den Online-Sessions üben Sie Linien, Schatten, Farben und Menschen auf kreative Weise in die Bildkomposition zu integrieren und verbessern so Ihr fotografisches Sehen. Gemeinsam wird analysiert, wann ein Bildaufbau funktioniert und wie Sie effizient editieren. Arbeiten anderer Fotografen und Fotografinnen werden besprochen, um Sie für Ihre eigenen Fotoprojekte zu inspirieren.


Anja's live online classes provided an intimate and safe space where I felt comfortable to present and discuss my work with other students, thus traning me for presenting my work outside of class. The assignments coupled with class critiques taught me how to formulate my point of view of other people's work, and to continue learning about things such as composition and sequencing. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is committed to advancing their photography, or who might need a little push and new prespective on where to take their work.

Thank you for all your guidance and patience with my project. There were some terrific students/talent in the class and you did a great job getting everyone to participate!
