Prague Photo Workshop:
Meet Our Experts
Photographer and filmmaker Ami Vitale’s work has taken her to more than 90 countries—she’s lived in mud huts and war zones, contracted malaria, and donned a panda suit, all in keeping with her philosophy of “living the story.” Early in her career, Ami focused on conflict photography, and her first National Geographic magazine story documented the last rickshaws in Kolkata, India. More recently, Ami has turned her lens to wildlife stories, including efforts to reintroduce white rhinos and pandas to the wild. From 1997 to 2000, Ami lived in Prague covering politics and news from Eastern Europe for newspapers and magazines around the world including The New York Times, The Guardian, and Newsweek. Ami will join the Prague photo workshop.
