The Power of Project Based Photography - Stewart Wall

Event info

Limited to 12 places - this workshop is for RPS Members.

Developing projects and creating a series of images is increasingly being seen by photographers as an enjoyable and successful way of engaging with photography.

The projects often engage with telling stories and we see the photographers showing their work through exhibitions, or competitions, or by publishing photobooks. Working on photographic projects can energise your photography in many ways and take it to new levels of engagement and enjoyment, both for you and your audience.

Where do you start, and how do you know when your project is ready to share with others?

This workshop provides guidance and shares knowledge and experience of the process from the concept to the completion of making work for photography projects.

During the course we will consider:

  1. How to come up with powerful ideas for projects.
  2. Write and develop your project brief to ensure your project is cohesive.
  3. How to create your images to fit the brief and support your project narrative.
  4. Edit your images to get the best from them.
  5. Sequence your images and show your project to others.
  6. Discuss how others have successfully disseminated their work through photobooks, exhibitions, and other means.

The workshop runs from 10am until 4pm and includes lectures and opportunities during the day to write a brief and shoot the first images in response to it. Towards the end of the day there is an extremely popular session where the tutor will give you feedback on your project and images, and will suggest ways you could develop your project even further, and suggest how you can share it, which might be in a photobook, or exhibition or for a competition etc.

Past attendees to this type of course have included professional photographers, keen hobby photographers and college students looking to develop methods to complete projects for their course. What you photograph is not important, it could be a wedding, flowers or a documentary style story, the workshop will work with you.

After the course you will receive a full set of notes to enable you to continue developing your future projects.
