Photo Mentorship with Panos photographer Lianne Milton
Panos photographer Lianne Milton, and member of The Everyday Projects and Panos Pictures is offering a 3-month mentorship for emerging Brazilian women photographers in Rio de Janeiro who want to improve on building their documentary reportage by examining elements of storytelling, discuss issues related to photojournalism, and the editing process.
I will select three photographers based on their portfolio or an on-going project, and we will meet once a week for a three-month period. Collectively we will examine your projects – what works, what doesn’t work and why. I will also share my career path, examples of personal projects and assignments but mostly we will look at your work every week. Students must already be engaged in a project, if not, then I will help you select a story to work on for the duration of the mentorship (or I may assign everyone a new story just for the mentorship). Because I am not fluent in Portuguese, the mentorship will be conducted mostly in English but I will do my best to speak Portuguese. I also welcome a translator to join us!
I am volunteering my time, therefore the students I select will also have a dedication to the craft and to the mentorship. I am also a working photographer, and some days I may have to postpone or reschedule due to an assignment. This mentorship is ideal for students currently studying photojournalism, recent graduates, or early-career photojournalists working as a freelancer or newspaper photographer. The goal of the mentorship is to provide support and guidance for Brazilian women photographers.
About Me: I began my freelance career in 2009, after working for three years as a newspaper photographer in California. I have been working for international publications, both print and online, and NGOs. My personal work is focused on the effects of policy on people and their environments. I’ve been based in Brazil since January 2013. www.liannemiltonphotography.com
Location: TBD – will be located in Ipanema/Copa neighborhood
Application: Please email Lianne – firstname.lastname@example.org – with a brief introduction, goals for the mentorship and a link/pdf to your portfolio or project.
Deadline: Friday, February 10
Starts: February 14 or 16 (with regards to Carnival, we can decide if you still want to meet or skip that week).
Ends: May 9

A fotografa da agencia @panospictures Lianne Milton, e membro do @everydaylatinamerica esta oferecendo uma orientação de 3 meses para fotojornalistas brasileiras que desejam melhorar a construção da sua foto-reportagem documental, explorando elementos de como contar histórias visuais, discutir questões relacionadas ao fotojornalismo e o processo de edição.
Selecionarei três fotógrafas com base em seu portfolio ou em um projeto em andamento, e nos reuniremos uma vez por semana por um período de três meses. Coletivamente, examinaremos seus projetos – o que funciona, o que não funciona e por quê. Eu também vou compartilhar a minha jornada de carreira, exemplos de projetos pessoais e trabalhos, mas principalmente vamos olhar para o seu trabalho a cada semana.
Os alunos já devem estar envolvidos em algum projeto, se não, vou ajudá-los a selecionar uma história para trabalhar durante a orientação (ou eu posso atribuir a todos uma história apenas para a orientação). Por não ser fluente em português, a orientação será conduzida principalmente em Inglês, mas vou fazer o meu melhor para falar Português.
Essa orientação é voluntária, portanto, os alunos que eu selecionar também terão que se dedicar ao ofício e à orientação. Esta orientação é ideal para estudantes atualmente estudando fotojornalismo, recém-graduados ou fotojornalistas de início de carreira que trabalham como freelancer ou em jornais. O objetivo da orientação é fornecer apoio e orientação para mulheres fotógrafas brasileiras.

While working as a volunteer in a refugee camp in Varaždīn in Croatia in 1992 during the Balkan wars Panos photographer Björn Steinz met 6 year old Bosnian boy Elvis.
Though the two couldn’t communicate, they quickly became friends. Björn taught him how to ride a bicycle and photographed him standing on a field gun.
Over the ensuing 25 years Björn periodically remembered Elvis and thought of getting back in touch with him. Finally, in 2017, with the help of Radio Free Europe and an appeal for Elvis to get in touch broadcast on Bosnian television and on the RFERL Balkan Service web page, the two made contact and met in at Elvis’ house, 25 kilometres outside Sarajevo where he now lives with his family.
To view a short clip of their first meeting on the RFERL website, click on the play button below.
Björn is going to return to Bosnia to document Elvis’ life now in the context of the current situation in Bosnia and the experiences of a refugee who returned after the war.
