British Journal of Photography have teamed up with Magnum Photos to offer a brand new programme of professional development workshops starting November 2016
With an ever-changing arts market and increasingly competitive photography network, there has never been a time more important to know how to market, sell and distribute your work.
A fresh programme of workshops led by industry professionals and Magnum photographers taking place over the coming months, will provide an invaluable insight into the dos and don’ts of the photography market, and present highly valuable training opportunities for photographers at any stage in their career.
There will be four workshops each lasting two days, with the first starting on 19 November.
Each will address a different aspect of the business, including how to establish a professional network of industry contacts, how to understand the requirements of the market and what the realistic routes into photographic employment are.
A selection of carefully curated lectures from speakers addressing specific areas of the photographic industry, sharing practical advice on how to succeed in their particular area, will take the lead in activities for the first day.
On the second day, photographers will have the chance to present their portfolios and get honest and constructive individual feedback from the speakers and Magnum staff.
Each workshop, which will be held at the Magnum Print Room in east London, is open to 40 applicants and places will be allocated on a first come first served basis, so don’t miss your chance to sign up!
