The Market Photo Workshop, in partnership with the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund, is pleased to announce Davina Jogi as the recipient of the 2012 Media and Advocacy Photography Mentorship at the Market Photo Workshop.
About the Media and Advocacy Photography Mentorship
The mentorship is aimed at the development of photographers with an interest in documenting societal issues that go unacknowledged in the mainstream media. The mentorship is for photographers interested in specialising in reporting, with a particular commitment to coverage of advocacy issues affecting diverse communities.
Billed as the global photographic event of the year, the Sony World Photography Awards celebrates the very best in photography from around the world, from the next generation of emerging photographers through to the established masters of the art.
The Nikon D800 SLR Digital Camera is more than a DSLR, it's a broadcast quality video camera as well. Powering both still and video capture is the FX-format CMOS 36.3Mp sensor and the powerful EXPEED 3 image-processing engine. Backing up the heart of the camera you'll find an optical low-pass filter that reduces false color and moire and an ISO range of 100-6400 that's expandable to ISO 50-25600 equivalent. Additionally, the D800 boasts 14-bit A/D conversion and 16-bit image processing. What's more, the camera's Nikon F mount accepts a multitude of NIKKOR lenses, included DX lenses and AF-S lenses; and Nikon Speedlights provide exceptional flash capabilities
The D800's Advanced Scene Recognition System with a 91k-pixel RGB sensor brings out precise, accurate colors in every scene, for natural-looking results. Face detection and a detailed scene analysis support more accurate autofocus, auto exposure, and i-TTL flash exposure for any number of compositional and lighting situations. When combined with auto-area AF and subject tracking in 3D-tracking, your images are even more fine-tuned. In addition, the 3D color matrix metering III feature results in pleasing auto exposures, especially when human faces are in the scene.

an exhibition by David Goldblatt
Founder of the Market Photo Workshop, David Goldblatt, celebrated his 80th birthday in November last year. In recognition of his extensive contribution, not only to the Photo Workshop, but also to photography in South Africa, we cordially invite you to the opening of his first exhibition at The Photo Workshop Gallery: Fale le Fale.
Fale le Fale is an exhibition of works selected from both Goldblatt’s historical oeuvre as well as the work he actively continues to produce, which explores the shifts in significance over time and the ways in which meaning is made through processes of representation. Goldblatt’s photographs are often invested in similar ways, enacting multiple and layered perspectives and questioning the function of photography as a medium of representation. Fale le Fale is Sesotho for ‘There and There’ referencing the curatorial process of selecting photographs from ‘there and there’ for this exhibition, but also as a suggestion of the ways in which Goldblatt’s practice has encompassed not only a wide coverage of places and times, but also of meanings, of ideas.
