We’re thrilled to bring you a new photography class with National Geographic photographer Ami Vitale. Ami’s work as an award winning photographer and filmmaker has taken her to more than 100 countries where she has experienced everything from civil unrest and violence to surreal beauty and the power of the human spirit. Her distinctive photographs have been exhibited around the world in museums and galleries and published in almost every international magazine including National Geographic magazine. She is a speaker, writer, photographer and filmmaker and will be giving a series of three classes delving in deeply into the art of visual storytelling.

Ami is an experienced teacher and believes in the importance of helping emerging photographers develop their talent and offers insightful, honest advice. She has developed a special online workshop that will help you to discover your visual language as well as practical and conceptual know-how into making sure your images have an impact. Ami shares her best practices of photography and you’ll create your own hands-on project: finding the beauty in a person or an experience, and composing your images to tell a powerful story.

About Ami Vitale

“In the beginning, photography was my passport to meeting people, learning, and experiencing new cultures. Now it is more than just a passport. It’s a tool for creating awareness and understanding across cultures, communities, and countries; a tool to make sense of our commonalities in the world we share.”

Nikon Ambassador and National Geographic magazine photographer Ami Vitale has traveled to more than 100 countries, bearing witness not only to violence and conflict, but also to surreal beauty and the enduring power of the human spirit. Throughout the years, Ami has lived in mud huts and war zones, contracted malaria, and donned a panda suit— keeping true to her belief in the importance of “living the story.” In 2009, after shooting a powerful story on the transport and release of one the world’s last white rhinos, Ami shifted her focus to today’s most compelling wildlife and environmental stories. Instyle Magazine named Ami one of fifty Badass Women, a series celebrating women who show up, speak up and get things done.
