Starting Points for Project Editing

I was really excited to do a workshop recently with London Independent Photography, working with photographers to edit their projects. The quality of work that people turned up with was excellent, and we had a very productive day discussing possible outcomes and how projects could be further developed to meet those goals. There is clearly a big demand for such guidance in editing, so more workshops are definitely to come in future!

Thank you to Stefanie Reichelt for sharing these images from the day!

Buzzing into 2012!

It’s just shocking to realise how quickly time can disappear, and I do wish I had more time to update this site with new images and stories about all that I’ve seen and what I’ve been working on. It’s been very difficult to focus exclusively on my own photographic work since I spend so much of my time now working on other projects including fLIP magazine and, in 2011, leading workshops. More of the same is in store for 2012. For the month of January I will be travelling in the US, and in mid-February will lead a workshop on project editing. All this time I have been shooting and building up an archive of work that I want to share, but some of it will just have to wait until I can give my full attention to presenting it in the ways that I envision…

For the duration of the holidays though, I’ll share some pictures here that I took at Zagreb Zoo in autumn, in the gallery called ‘Pets.’

I wish you all happy holidays and the best of all you can imagine for 2012! X

More workshops with Photofusion!

My first two workshops at Photofusion on Approaching the Street were a great success! The participants were all very keen and it’s been a real pleasure to see the results they have produced for their course assignments. There is some seriously great work coming out of it, and I’m sure some of these photographers will see wider exposure in the very near future!

I’ve just received an email from one participant who said, “The expertise and info sheets you provided were very helpful in steering my process and edits toward cohesion as I managed to secure a Magnum Workshop with Ian Berry and have group work projected at the Whitechapel Gallery. A very positive experience for me…”

Exciting feedback!

Another session will run two Sundays, 25 September & 9 October – to register see the Photofusion website for details

Upcoming workshop: Approaching the Street

I’m leading a workshop over two Saturdays next month at Photofusion, with ten participants – will you be one?

The course runs 9 & 23 July (two Saturdays), with the opportunity to complete a project in between. We’ll cover different approaches to the genre of street photography, discuss the progression of ideas and working methods. There will be a practical shooting session and the follow-up session will focus on feedback, editing advice and ideas for further project development. More than all that even!

Organised to run during the exhibition On Street Photography: A Woman╩╝s Perspective which I’m taking part in, which in turn is also a part of the London Street Photography Festival.

Update: New dates added July 31/August 14, 2011
