The Summit Workshops’ faculty never stop to amaze us in all the amazing work they continue to do. Below are some quick updates on some faculty and their recent accomplishments!
- News Photographer Magazine featured a select group of faculty members from last fall’s Photography at the Summit workshop in the March issue. Extensive interview Q&A stories were featured with the extensive words of William Albert Allard, Jodi Cobb, Tom Mangelsen, Jay Maisel, and Rich Clarkson. They are accompanied by full page portraits by photographer and Sports Workshop faculty, Joey Terrill.
- Brad Smith, senior sports photo editor for The New York Times, came away as an unprecedented winner of first, second and third prizes in the sports picture editing category of NPPA’s Best of Journalism competition announced April 24. Never have all three awards gone to a single person. Brad is a key faculty member at the Sports Photography Workshop — where he candidly announces each year that he is there looking for new talent. In addition to being one of the best instructors.
