Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, this is an all-day career enhancing event on the 1st of April that will explore storytelling through imagery, and coach aspirants on how to work professionally in the field of documentary photography.
Starting with a candid talk between two heavyweights in the industry, photographers Aria Shahrokhshahi and Barry Lewis, who will share with attendees their approach, experiences and provide practical insights into the medium.
Following on from the talk, photographer and co-organiser of Fail Better Talks, Nina Maria Allmoslechner, and Port Magazines photo editor Jodie Michaelides, will join the panellists to workshop with the attendees. Each group will have a chance to get feedback on bodies of work, projects, pitches or ideas they’re working on.
The talk and workshop aims to develop the practice of budding photographers and guide them further along their creative development, as well as arm them with tools on how to turn documentary photography into a viable career. Key topics like process, equipment, planning and pitching will be covered alongside the creative aspects that make this medium a truly unique method of expression.
(We cannot offer spaces to people who do not have a body of work or project to discuss as there is a workshop element to this event.)
