Workshop: Creating Authentic Portraits

Two National Geographic photographers share techniques for photographing people. Bring your camera for hands-on lessons.

This free workshop will be lead by Erika Larsen and Lida Suchy, both Fulbright alumni documentary photographers whose long-term projects became National Geographic stories.

No pre-registration is required for this workshop. However, attendance will be capped, so we recommend arriving early to ensure getting a seat.

About the photographers:

Erika Larsen spent three years living with reindeer herders in the far north of Norway and Sweden. Her book Sámi: Walking With Reindeer, was published in 2013.

Lida Suchy is documentary photographer who uses portraiture to chronicle the lives of communities. In her Portrait of a Village she photographed Kryvorivnya village in 1994 and with a Fulbright grant returned to follow the same subjects two decades later.
