Behind-the-scenes of this summer's first Huck Photo Workshop - practical, fun masterclasses for image-makers of all kinds.

The inaugural Huck Photo Workshop kicked off on May 27 with an evening masterclass led by award-winning photographer Daniella Zalcman.

A multiple Pulitzer grantee, Daniella has perfected the art of iPhone photography and app-based post-production tools to create a multilayered aesthetic that she then applies to narrative photojournalism projects like her forthcoming book, Signs of Your Identity, which explores the impact of Canada’s forced assimilation education programme¬†on indigenous communities. It’s powerful stuff – brought to life in a beautiful, empathic way.

Over the course of the evening, Daniella shared some hard-won lessons and nifty pro tricks – from cultivating intimacy with a subject by shooting portraits on a smartphone, to step-by-step tips on the best post-production apps.

A whole load of great images were produced on the night. These are just the highlights.
