As expected students were wowed by Dave’s vision and teaching. His photography is among the world’s finest social documentary photography. His big heart, stories and ability to relate to people had the group growing photographically and splitting their sides with fun.

One regular student at HarryNowell.com, Prasad, had this to say about the workshop:

Harry – thank you for introducing me to David.  This course has changed the way I take photographs.  More importantly it has changed the way I see myself and the world around me.  It’s not about WHAT we see in the world through the rectangular viewfinder but HOW we see the world.  My journey through photojournalism will begin with a smile and a hand shake, not the sound of a shutter.

This is me.  This is what I want to do.
