Welcome to the new Momenta Workshops monthly newsletter!
Happy Fall, everyone! Those nice folks over at Emma have given our newsletter a facelift and we are ready to roll with this month’s updates for all of you! We’ve been on a hiatus for a long time but you’ll find in this issue that all your favorite features are back. We’ve got workshop information, info on our Fall FotoFridays discounts and opportunities in photography featuring grants, scholarship and awards for professional, amateur and student photographers.
We will be adding new features to the newsletter over the next year including links to our student’s work, special discounts and much more. Also, don’t forget to join our social media networks to keep up to date on daily photography news. Finally, please feel free to share this with your friends too (they can opt in at the bottom). Enjoy the newsletter and we’ll see you in the field!

Project DC 2012: Only 5 slots left!
We are so excited for our first year of the Project DC workshop in collaboration with Leica Camera! This year’s workshop will be lead by Director Jamie Rose and our newest instructor Justin Maxon. Justin was awarded top prize by the Alexia Foundation and Cliff Edom’s New America Prize this year. Also joining us is Leica Akadamie instructor Tom A. Smith who will be on hand to loan out Leica M9 cameras to our students for work on their projects. This workshop is proving to be very popular and we have only five openings left so we recommend you get your registration in today. Click here for info on this great workshop!
Everyone’s flipped for Fall FotoFridays!
Every Friday from now until November, Momenta is offering one FotoFriday discount per week. Starting at 12:01 a.m. through 11:59 p.m. every Friday, we are offering discounts up to 25% off tuition on one workshop in our line up. The discounts will be announced on our Twitter, Facebook, Google+ & LinkedIn profiles.
Opportunities in Photography
This section of our newsletter is devoted to grants, scholarships and awards available to photographers at all levels. Please read the rules and regulations very carefully for every contest before you enter. Please note: Momenta does not endorse, support or have any influence over these organizations. We are merely seeking to increase your awareness of the opportunities which can help support your photographic career. Good luck!
