Background

For eight years I worked throughout the Middle East and Africa for various European and US News Magazines. My work has been published in various media including Der Spiegel, Die Welt, The New York Times, TIME, Paris Match and Le Monde etc.
I have experience also of lecturing and teaching the subject of documentary photography. Recently I have put together my syllabus on how to use photography as an effective tool for social activism, and taught the same to adult students in the UK.

»Vedat Xhymshiti delivery was very articulate and engaging. His background of photojournalism has taken him to many war-torn areas around the world. Let’s face it - his job is not something for the fainthearted. His background immediately became apparent. This was one hell of a serious workshop.« - Dilip Sinah, workshop attendee at Llyfrgell Maindee Library, Newport [south Wales].

Given the opportunity, you will witness my ability to work independently, with good humour and adaptability which has contributed effectively to my high success rates and outstanding results since 2008 as a documentary photographer and journalist as well as a teacher.

Vedat's CV

I've studied print, web and broadcast journalism. I have an MA in the field of International Relations and Diplomacy. I am certified as an Investigative Journalist. I am a columnist for the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network and Foreign Policy Journal.

I have a decade’s ground experience in social activism that commenced as a documentary photographer back in 2007, and later on as a reporter, journalist and investigative journalist [click to see his website]. My role, in my words, is to expose “the good the bad and the ugly of the truth”.

My workshop is specifically tailored to help you understand the underlying political and social values that have driven government policies for the past decade and, the continuing impact of that political narrative. My counter-narrative and understanding of the world gleaned from my extensive and international experience will aid you in clarifying and solidifying your social justice goals.
