Anita’s Classes

  • Anita teaches documentary storytelling and more for StrudelmediaLive.
Anita's course gave me the opportunity to learn more about photography, and also about myself. She was always so willing to help us and guide us to the best ways of narrating our feelings and thoughts through photography.
—Nanu (Venezuela)
It was probably one of the best classes I’ve taken and I was — and still am — pumped because Anita imparted such a wealth of knowledge on us, I seriously wish it never ended.
—Aniya (Barbados)
Anita's Documentary Storytelling class is a creatively refreshing exploration of how to broaden your documentary practice…. She helped me think more holistically about the work I was creating. I felt as though her class nurtured an artistic side of my practice that’s often lost in discussions of technical expertise, photo critique, and sequencing. She digs deep and helps her students create more powerful projects.
