WORKSHOP | Diego Vergés Travel Photography Masterclass

Sunday, October 09, 2011

I was recently invited by Joseph Leh, one of the six finalist of the DPP-KLM-Lonely Planet On Assignment Europe to attend an upcoming workshop featuring award-winning travel photographer Diego Vergés.

Diego who, you might ask? Here’s a short description of the guy:

An Audiovisual Communication Degree graduate from Universidad Complutense of Madrid, Diego started traveling and documenting different cultures in Gabon, Africa in 2008. Between 2009 to 2011, he has been to India, Nepla, Sumatra, Sulawesi, Nusa, Tengara, Papua, the Philippines, Guatemala and Ethiopia.
A Luis Ksado Photojournalism and Fotografia Solidaria DKV-Intermon Awardee, his works had been published in various well known magazines such as Super Foto, Siete Leguas, Digital Camera, Light Magazine and Photo Creator.

He is currently one of the Getty Image Global Assignment Photographers.
