Run by two professionals within the field, Dom Bush and Alex Ekins, this unique Big Shakeout workshop will offer you the chance to learn the skills and techniques necessary to give your work direction and see if you have what it takes to become an outdoor photojournalist, photographer or film maker. Each day will begin with a group session giving an insight into the practice of outdoor photojournalism, working with the media, magazines, creating portfolios and operating in a professional manner as well as setting the assignment for the day.

Oh and don't forget... this course includes your Big Shakeout weekend ticket worth £45 and what should be a nice goody bag too!
