White Cloud Workshops are scheduled weekly throughout the year.
Where we are:
- Each workshop lasts two days, Saturday and Sunday.
- Each workshop involves only three people -- one student and two instructors.
- The cost is $895, which includes tuition, breakfast and lunch, and the six-month follow-up critique.
- We also do workshops for picture editors and photo department managers. And if you like, we'll bring the workshop to your paper.
Our country retreat is in the rolling hills of Southern Indiana, near Corydon, about 35 miles west of Louisville, Ky., and 100 miles south of Indianapolis.Food and lodging:
The nearest airport is in Louisville, about 45 minutes away.
Workshop students stay at the Kintner House Inn, a local bed & breakfast hostelry with superior hospitality and atmosphere. We'll make reservations for you when we receive your application.
Lunch is served on the premises. Dinner is available at a diverse bunch of restaurants, from Jock's Lunch to El Nopalito, with nearly every fast-food franchise known to man. It's difficult to spend more than $10 for dinner.How to apply:
After you are accepted:
- Mail us your name, address, phone and a deposit of $375 plus a $25 application fee -- a total of $400.
(Make checks payable to White Cloud Workshop.)
- Include a CD or DVD with all the pictures you shot for three different assignments. Every frame; no deleting.
- Prepare a thoughtful statement of your goals and ambitions as a photographer.
- Indicate the date(s) you'd like to attend. Please list both a first and second choice of dates.
If your application is approved, the remainder of the workshop fee must be paid in full at least four weeks prior to your starting date.
Once you are accepted, we will ask you to outline what you want to learn or gain from the White Cloud Workshop. We may even ask you to refine or expand your statement of goals.
You will need to bring the following with you when you come to White Cloud:
- One month's work. Every frame of everything shot -- no cheating! -- even mug shots and the stuff you did "just for the fun of it." Where applicable, each set of contact sheets should include a copy of the original assignment, if employed by a newspaper or magazine, or an explanation of what the "job" was for, if you are a freelancer or a student. Include captions where helpful or necessary.
- Your complete portfolio.
