Apply for the Eddie Adams Workshop

Each fall, one hundred promising young photographers from around the world are invited to come to a farm in upstate New York, where they are treated to four days of intense training and shooting. The teachers and staff are some of the best photographers and picture editors in the world.

Throughout the four days, the attendees will get almost zero sleep. There's just too much you'd rather be doing. It's awesome.

It's called, "Barnstorm," and this year will be Barnstorm XX, which is the 20th edition.

I was a student at the second Barnstorm, back in 1989. I can honestly say that, photographically speaking, it was far and away the best week of my life. Ask anyone else who has been lucky enough to attend, and they'll likely tell you the same thing.

Oh, and the workshop is free.

The only catch is that you have to be chosen - by portfolio, application and recommendation - to attend. You must be a college student, military photographer or a pro with three years (or less) experience.

The deadline to apply is May 14th. To anyone who is eligible, I would strongly recommend applying. If you are a Barnstorm alum, please leave a comment, along with your year and and what you thought of the experience.
