The Fredric Roberts Photography Workshops are led by the award-winning photographer as he brings his passion for storytelling through still images to high school aged students in Third World countries. With assistance from a faculty of world-class photographers and teachers, each workshop will train a group of 20 students, half from rural areas and the other half from urban households. The class will also consist of an even number of boys and girls. Over the course of each seven-day workshop, using a format developed by Mr. Roberts, the participants will take photographs centering on a particular theme, such as the environment, health issues or education.

When each workshop ends, Mr. Roberts will donate two cameras plus photo software so that participants can continue to develop their skills. (He will also work with local partners to secure photographers from each country who will participate in the workshop and will continue to mentor the novice photographers.) He will also use a private website so that students can continue to improve their skills and continue their photographic education.

He established the first Fredric Roberts Photography Workshop in 2011 in Udaipur, India, and recently embarked on a continuation of these workshops across the world. The first of these took place in Bhutan in January 2014, followed by a second workshop in Nicaragua in May 2014 and a third in Tajikistan in October 2014.

In 2015, Roberts and his team returned to Bhutan and Tajikistan, where they led an advanced workshop for returning students, along with another beginners’ workshop. More recently, they conducted workshops in Kyrgyzstan, Hyderabad (India), Los Angeles, Toronto and Lisbon.
