Boston University’s Summer Journalism Institute introduces a specialty track for high school students focused on photojournalism. It’s a unique opportunity for students working for their school newspaper, magazine or yearbook, or simply interested in learning how to take great photos from a professional photojournalist.
With the world of news now viewed on everything from televisions to phones, visual reporting is becoming more important than ever. Most journalism outlets require their reporters to take pictures. A single image or short video clip can add greater detail and emotional punch to every written story.
The photojournalism track is taught by Stephen Haines, a veteran photojournalist and a lecturer at Boston University. He spent most of his career at The Boston Globe where he worked as a staff photographer, assignment and photo editor. He has taught at Boston University for 14 years where he concentrates on the creative controls of photography, teaching students to take powerful, storytelling photos from which readers can learn.
The photojournalism track is limited to 12 students, and offered during Session 1 only, June 22 to July 3, 2020. DSLR cameras will be supplied to students for their use during the session.
