25th Anniversary Barnstorm Workshop
The Eddie Adams Workshop is an intense four-day gathering of the top photography professionals, along with 100 carefully selected students. The photography workshop is tuition-free, and the 100 students are chosen based on the merit of their portfolios.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Workshop, which was founded by photographer Eddie Adams, with his wife and our current director, Alyssa Adams. Over the years, we have built a strong network of alumni including some of the top photographers and editors in the field.
Here is what some of them have to say about the Workshop:
“There are no other days in the year where a free flow of ideas, mutual encouragement from all participants for the purpose of making meaningful images, in an atmosphere of phenomenal energy, exists in the world of photography quite like that which occurs at The Eddie Adams Workshop each Fall.”
— Howard Schatz“The EAW was one of those rare defining moments that shaped my career as a photographer forever.”
— Alana Goldstein, Barnstorm XXII“No sleep, no time, no room for failure. The Eddie Adams Workshop separates out the photographers who have what it takes to succeed.”
- David Griffin, Visuals Editor, Washington Post
“It was a place to make lifelong friendships and connections. An incredible experience that goes beyond the ‘photo’ in journalism, and a must for any inspiring photographer.”
-Afton Almaraz, Barnstorm XXI“The Eddie Adams workshop is an incredibly enlightening experience, the amount of raw talent that surrounds you is amazing.”
— Colin Crawford, Deputy Managing Editor, Visuals, Los Angeles Times
