Missouri Photo Workshop now accepting applications, deadline July 14

The Missouri Photo Workshop was, “a defining time for me as a photographer. I will take MPW skills with me for the rest of my life, ” said Chad Ziemendorf who last year photographed MPW61 and joined hundreds of other photographers who say that the Workshop has changed their lives.

David Alan Harvey who photographed MPW19, in 1967 has said, “The Missouri Workshop was a watershed experience in my life. It was the single most important experience that I had in my early twenties that pushed things forward for me from then on. I use that Missouri philosophy every day of my working life now at both National Geographic and with Magnum.”

MPW has documented small town America for six decades, shaping the working methods of more than 2,000 photographers from around the world. Guided by some of the world’s leading photographers and editors, participants are challenged to develop both their researching and visual storytelling skills.
