RPS Documentary Group: Photography Workshop - What makes great photography?

05 July 2016

SIG: Documentary

10 September 2016 10.15 - 17.00 




This workshop is designed to take us through the kaleidoscope of photographic genres, to look at what makes a great photograph, what we ourselves want from our photography, a collective review/discussion of our own and others work and a wrap up discussion. 


In the course of the day we will:

1.     Take a look at:

What makes great photography?

Why we take photographs? 

What do we want from our own photography?

Different genres


2.     A review and discussion of participants work

3.     A discussion on outcomes and what we learn from examples from other photographers.

The workshop is led by 

Andrew Mills, MEd, MA, Cert Ed, ARPS, LBIPP, who is an award winning professional photographer specialising in Advertising, Editorial and Commercial photography for over thirty years.

His personal photography is concerned with art and documentary.   As an exhibiting art and documentary photographer he continues to work on a variety of projects. 

He is a qualified lecturer in photography and the media in general and has taught at degree level courses in university and higher education as well as at beginner level and beyond for groups and in companies for staff development.

Over many years he has built a large library of images covering many subjects, which form the basis for this work on genres.
