Announcing the Next Master Class: Eye of a Photo Editor, with Kira Pollack

We're pleased to announce the next SPD Master Class, and most importantly, the amazing, award-winning, best-of-the-best talent leading it: Kira Pollack, Director of Photography for TIME,, TIME on the tablets, the TIME photography site LightBox and companion Tumblr, and, of course, the creative lead behind the multi-media 9/11 project that spanned print, digital, web, television and gallery exhibitions. For just one day, Saturday, December 3, Kira will be giving YOU an extremely exclusive opportunity to learn and to not only be inspired, but also to ask all the questions you want and push back on the answers. Show some of your own work. Address some of your most pressing challenges. Find out how she gets it done...and what she's looking for in the next generation of photo editors. After this 1-day intensive workshop, you'll have a new mentor, a deeper professional network, and a broader skill-set to take to work on Monday morning.

About the SPD Master Class:
The SPD Master Class series provides an intimate learning environment, pairing a "master" of the industry with a  group of 10 SPD members for a one-day only opportunity. Topics run the gamut from typography, illustration, photography, to data visualizations. The focus is on giving access for a very small number of participants to one of the most well-regarded people in the publishing industry - a truly unique experience for listening, learning, seeing how this person thinks and works. It is a casual attempt at giving an exclusive look into their particular influence, talent and point-of-view. For each class, the agenda is up to the master, and encourages hands-on experience of working examples.

**A note about workshop materials: you will need to bring your own laptop to the Master Class in order to complete the workshop assignments that day. You will also be sent a pre-class assignment to complete and bring with you that morning.
