I’m taking a group of photo students to Jakarta. I’m looking for other journalists, photojournalists to invite to our dinner May 13, location TBA. At the dinner you would meet the students and hear their story ideas and offer them them your experience, wisdom and maybe other story ideas they had not thought about.

It would be great if you could help out these budding photojournalists.

We’ll also need recommendations on lodging and fixers…
