Here are the two places for accommodations:



JONI KABANA is a visual artist and communications specialist who is most happy when she is deep into a world which is unfamiliar to her. She can be found at home or in remote villages across the globe working on magazine, NGO, corporate, advertisement and personal projects trying to stretch her beliefs and imagination as far as they will go.

Joni graduated with an honors degree in Psychology, loving her study of human behavior. She also holds post degree certification in computer programming and enjoyed an earlier corporate career leading teams that produced technical interactive projects.

Her work has garnered numerous awards, is shown in galleries internationally, and has been published extensively. She currently teaches for several institutions and organizes her own street and international photography workshops.

She gives back to the community by balancing her creative commercial work with humanitarian non-profit projects. Her recent work with Mercy Corps International in India and Nepal and her work with rural hospitals in Ethiopia garnered two American Society of Media Photographer’s “Best of” designations, and she has helped numerous charitable organizations relay their unique purposes.  She has served on many committees and boards, including The Children’s Cancer Association, The John Day River Territory Agri-tourism Project and Photolucida.

Joni is available for consultation, lectures, workshops and classroom teaching, in addition to commercial advertisement and portrait/editorial assignments. She can collect still imagery, video, and sound content in addition to producing multi-media pieces. She is often hired to be a guest social media and blog writer, expanding the reach of many organizations.

See extensive galleries of her work on her Photoshelter account in addition to this curated website.

This workshop is PPA-accredited; PPA attendees who attend the entire session will receive one PPA merit.
