Webinar Topic: In this feature packed webinar, Stacy Pearsall, a retired Combat photographer and current director of the Charleston Center for Photography, will take you through some of the most difficult shooting environments that she encountered while being a photo journalist. Stacy will share some of her lighting techniques and elaborate on her successful shots that she captured while working in demanding environments.

Webinar Description: Stacy Pearsall is the most decorated female war photographer of our time and an award-winning photojournalist. In this hands-on practical guide, Stacy offers photojournalists and photographers covering either combat or domestic assignments the techniques, insights, and inspiration they need to be successful photojournalists. In line with her recently released book, A Photojournalist’s Field Guide, she’ll give an overview of photojournalism, and then dive into the daily grind of what it takes to operate on a day-to-day basis. She’ll provide keen insights into preparing for long- and short-term assignments, living and working in harsh conditions, maintaining physical and mental health, and managing relationships with subjects. Stacy also discusses her personal shooting techniques and offers tips on equipment, giving readers suggestions for getting the best shots they can, even under potentially difficult circumstances.

Stacy Pearsall started as a military photographer at the age of 17. During my time in the service I traveled to over 41 countries and attended S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. She is one of only two women to win the NPPA Military Photographer of the Year competition, and the only woman to have won it twice. Her work has been published in various national and international media as well as documentaries. She’s even shared her experiences as a female combat photojournalist with the world through Popular Photography, Newsweek and even Oprah. She now owns the Charleston Center for Photography, which is a photographic education center and studio rental source in Charleston, S.C. She continues to travel the world teaching photography and photographing assignments for editorial and commercial clients.
