GLA Photography & Journalism Programs
On this program, your photography will become a service to the local community in Peru. You'll collaborate on portraiture and post-production to come up with a memento that the students and their families can enjoy. You'll also take part in community development projects that target infrastructure-, education- or health-related concerns. Through volunteering, you’ll have the opportunity to get to know families, shoot their portraits, conduct interviews and create human interest pieces for exchanging with our group and your subjects.
