We recently participated in the Mentorship Program to Ghana with the NGO Photographers Alliance and I am so glad we did. There is no substitute for learning in the field. Our mentor was very professional, approachable, and a great teacher. He took our learning seriously and worked to help us grow. In one short week I noticed improvement in my images, and changed how I looked at each new shooting situation. After participating in the workshop, I feel confident in being able to help an NGO with their photographic needs. I’d recommend anyone interested in NGO photography to sign up for a Mentorship Program and get hands on training in the field.
