Basecamp is our high-intensity photojournalism crash course. Spend a week with editors from national geographic, the new yorker, & vanity fair as well as photojournalists who regularly work for the new york times, washington post, wall street journal, and more. You'll take a project from inception to completion on-location in one of the most culturally interesting sections of the Eastern seaboard (which also happens to be the site of our next issue). Some of the best stories to come out of our week together will have the chance to be recognized and published in this issue of The Collective Quarterly

This is for serious photojournalists who want to hone their skills while connecting with industry professionals who hold the keys to the next chapter of their careers. Prepare to work—hard. This is not a vacation. You’ll be responsible for hunting down potential feature stories, selecting one with the help of your edit team, and workshopping it throughout the week.  

Spaces are limited, so act fast.

Application process is competitive and requires a portfolio submission.
