 "As a young boy I dreamed of becoming a magazine photographer. The brilliant photo essays of Henri Cartier-Bresson,W. Eugene Smith, Dorothea Lange, and Robert Frank that graced the pages of international picture magazines that came into my home were my first sights and smells of the world "out there".

The photo narrative form was to become my life. By the time I was 28, I was shooting essays for National Geographic Magazine and I continue to do stories for them now. The way I work on essays for magazines is the same way I stitch together my books like Divided Soul, Living Proof, and the very recent (based on a true story) photo novella set in Rio.

I am passionately convinced that learning how to shoot a photo essay will help you as nothing else will in photo education. For any type of photo style.

I prove this every time one of my workshop students shows their work to an audience after a week with me as their coach/mentor. My classes are not easy. They are designed to take you forward to your personal next step. I teach authorship and personal style.

Hard work? Yes. Rewarding? Nothing quite like it.

So come to Dubai. I am in the middle of my own personal essay there so you will be working in real time alongside me. You will also most definitely be on your own and finding your stylistic voice.

One of the great things about this Dubai class is that it will be in the middle of GPP2014  and you will be bumping elbows with many greats like Gregory Heisler and Joe McNally and a host of others.

Dubai is a terrific place to shoot. Safe!! Just unreal in its opulence and architectural grandeur and a new born nation out of the desert has such a unique history. A real phenomenon.

If you have not been, I think you will love Dubai. I knew nothing of the Emirates until last year when invited to GPP. I became fascinated.

So join my team. We produce premium workshops and we make sure you are totally rewarded with your investment.

The team  joining me for this workshop are the picture editors of Burn Magazine, an online and in print journal for emerging photographers, which I founded and have curated for 5 years: Diego Orlando, our Director of Photograph;, and Kaya Berne, Picture Editor will be with me in Dubai.

As you may imagine, this would be a really nice time to get yourself "discovered" 

Cheers, David
