Photography Ethics Symposium

Photography Ethics Symposium

Event info

This one-day Photography Ethics Symposium brings together leaders in ethics from across the industry. We will cover a wide range of topics: from practical tools to become more ethical in your work, to asking the big questions about why we photograph and how we engage in processes of representation. We look forward to welcoming speakers Anthony Luvera, Jess Crombie, Emma Chetcuti, and Franklyn Rodgers.

During the day, delegates will have the opportunity to engage in individual Project Ethics Reviews with one of our speakers. During these reviews, delegates will have the opportunity to discuss their photography process and work through ethical considerations in conversation with an expert.


Review slots are limited and are offered on a first come, first served basis. To reserve a slot, email  after first registering for the symposium. Please include in your email a brief description of your project, and you will be paired with the reviewer who is best placed to discuss your work.

This symposium is hosted by the Royal Photographic Society, and organised by the Photography Ethics Centre.
