You are putting all your effort in your research. You have a story to tell. But how do you show this to the world? Visualize your PhD! Come to the workshop and learn from a professional photographer how to capture your research with your camera! The workshop will focus on aesthetics in photography with an introduction into storytelling + editing. All you need is your phone camera and enthusiasm, but more advanced photography equipment is welcome! Basic photography skills (technique and core concepts) are required for participation in the workshop.
