Workshop Description

Science and science communication rely heavily and extensively on photography. This includes recording, illustrating and explaining scientific studies for teaching, divulgation and publication. The aim of this workshop is to teach scientists to be more "visually literate", which will empower them to more effectively communicate their science.

This practice-focused workshop will include photo-shooting sessions in Zoo Zurich and different laboratories from Zurich University and ETH.
