Daniel Berehulak Profile

Daniel Berehulak


In this virtual presentation, conducted during the 2020 Eddie Adams Workshop, photojournalist Daniel Berhulak gives a deep dive into his life and career as a professional photographer, from his childhood as a Ukrainian refugee growing up in Australia, to photographing sports for Getty, to creating award-winning photojournalism stories of all varieties in countries around the world.

Daniel Berehulak is an independent photojournalist based in Mexico City. Born to immigrant parents, Daniel grew up on a farm outside of Sydney, Australia. His work has been recognized with two Pulitzer Prizes. In 2015, for his coverage of the Ebola epidemic in West Africa and in 2017 for his coverage of the so-called “war on drugs” in the Philippines, both for The New York Times. In 2011, he was also a Pulitzer finalist for his coverage of floods in Pakistan. Daniel has received several other honors, including six World Press Photo awards, two Photographer of the Year awards from POYi, and the prestigious John Faber, Olivier Rebbot and Feature Photography awards from the Overseas Press Club.

The Eddie Adams Workshop is the only tuition-free photojournalism seminar of its kind. Applicants at the start of their career submit portfolios for consideration. One hundred participants selected solely on the merit of their pictures team up with top professional photographers and editors for a four-day gathering that includes assignments, portfolio reviews, panel discussions and presentations. The Workshop began in 1988 with the goal to redress the exclusivity of professional opportunities by accepting students based on their demonstrated skills, and not on their ability to pay tuition. The all-volunteer faculty and staff, many of whom are alumni, are passionate about the mission and donate their time and expertise. The Workshop has an unparalleled history of nurturing talent, exchanging ideas and building relationships. The workshop takes place annually over Columbus Day Weekend, normally in Jeffersonville, New York. During the pandemic, the workshop has been conducted virtually.
