TraineeshipThe Photography Foundation
- London, United Kingdom
In 2022 I completed The Photography Foundation’s traineeship, a Charity funded photography-based organisation that aims to educate photographers from underrepresented backgrounds. In the traineeship, we were shown all of the skills to run a successful studio as well as gaining hands on experience with using a wide range of professional equipment. During the course we had many established photographers come in and deliver in person sessions such as a workshop with Ken Lam on natural lighting and still life photography. The 6 month traineeship was split into two sections, the first three months of the traineeship we were set the individual task of creating a commercial brief. This consisted of; designing a treatment to send to our client, reaching out and forming a team to collaborate with, and ensuring on the smooth production of the whole shoot. For my project I chose to work with a selection of musicians to create content for promotional use on social media and music platforms. For the second half of the course, as a group we where tasked with creating a series of professional studio headshots for the staff of a charity called The Young Brent Foundation, as well as shooting a series of photos for the unveiling of their new community hub. In this we were given a budget to acquire all of the kit we would need to create a remote studio for the portraits, the equipment needed to shoot photos, the new location as well factoring in the cost of transporting all of the kit. The photos where displayed on banners at the launching of the new space. The program culminated in an exhibition of all of the work that we hand created during the traineeship, showcasing our newfound skills.
