Dreaming of a career in photojournalism or just want to take your cell phone pictures to the next level?

This Thursday, award-winning multimedia journalist Alex Stonehill will take participants through the basics of composition, help you get comfortable shooting photos in public, and show you how to unlock the advanced functions of your camera. Stonehill will also be giving a primer on basic photo editing.

“Great pictures can really draw people into a story,” Stonehill says. “Even if you don’t think of yourself as a photographer, that extra effort to learn to take a nice photo can really pay off — Anyone can do it.”

Our special guest, the talented Globalist photojournalist Jama Abdirahman, will be sharing some of his work along with Stonehill, over Cafe Ibex’s delicious Ethiopian veggie platters. 

The “Boost Your Photo Skills” workshop launches our new yearlong community workshop series, “Your City. Your Story. Your Voice” dedicated to harnessing the voices of Seattle’s diverse communities through new media skills and publication opportunities with The Globalist.

What to bring: Your photo-snapping device of choice (doesn’t have to be fancy). Ideas for a visual story you’d like to tell for the Seattle Globalist.

When: 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, June 18, 2015. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

Where: Back room of Cafe Ibex (must be 21+) at 3219 Martin Luther King Jr. Way South, Seattle, Wash. 98144
