I am a freelance photographer based out of Los Angeles, CA. I have traveled, worked, and/or photographed in over 35 countries. The Middle East, especially Kurdistan, has been one of my main areas of focus over the last several years and I would be happy to offer up advice for anyone that is interested in traveling to that region.

Video Mentor Needed in Philadelphia

The Tiziano Project is set to launch a program connecting youth in Philadelphia and Kabul, Afghanistan through concurrent new media training programs. The course will be eight weeks long and will start immediately. Classes will occur twice per week, two hours per session.

The course will focus on video, and will cover all elements of good multimedia production from framing a shot, to capturing good audio, to editing a quality piece.

We are currently looking for a mentor with outstanding video journalism skills to lead the program in Philadelphia.

The Tiziano Project will provide curriculum support and will oversee the collaboration between the training locations in Kabul and Philadelphia.

This is a paid contract position.

To apply, please send your resume and portfolio / video samples to: jobs@tizianoproject.org


About The Tiziano Project (http://www.tizianoproject.org)

The Tiziano Project provides community members in conflict, post-­‐conflict, and underreported regions with the equipment, training, and affiliations necessary to report their stories and improve their lives.

We develop and encourage first-­‐class collaborative journalism on a global scale, while expanding knowledge and access to information worldwide, though empowering communities to tell their stories.

By creating opportunities for professional journalists and filmmakers to work side-­by­‐side with community members, we develop collaborative documentary projects that transcend mainstream media and help to change perceptions of the regions in which we work.

The Tiziano Project has led programs in Iraq, Israel, Palestine, Turkey, Latvia, Somalia, Rwanda, DR Congo, Kenya, and the United States.

In 2010, The Tiziano Project launched the 360 Kurdistan – 360.tizianoproject.org – an immersive, nonlinear website that provides an in-­‐depth look at Kurdistan through the eyes of both the local community – including Kurds, Arabs, and Christians – and their professional journalist mentors.

The website received international recognition, including the Online Journalism Award for Community Collaboration, a Gracie Award for coverage of Women’s Issues, SXSW’s Award for Activism, and honors from the Society for News Design, Adobe, and the Webbys. We are currently developing this website into a global platform for collaborative storytelling through a Knight News Challenge grant cosponsored by the Knight Foundation and Google.
