2024 Autumn Online Project Development Course  

October 2024 – December 2024 online - 5 group seminars and 2 one-to-one tutorials. 



Over a period of five sessions (and two 30 minute tutorials) this online course will look at the different ways in which you can develop your personal project for a coherent starting point, or possible exhibition, publication, or professional dissemination.


The course will focus on participants’ practice, the work they are making, and how projects can be developed into coherent stories that might be told  in print, in the gallery, in photobooks.


Each session will use the impetus from participants’ projects to highlight how sequencing, text, and narrative overlap and interact. Peer-to-peer participation is a central element of the course. 


Time: 18:00 – 20:00 British Time 


Dates: Tuesday 8th October, Tuesday 22nd  October. Tuesday 5th November, Tuesday 19th November, Monday 2nd December

Plus individual sessions in October/December

Writing for Photographers (with Simon Bainbridge and the BJP)

London, 10 August and 19th October

A one-day introductory workshop on how to write about your photography. Using interactive examples and exercises, the workshop will examine various forms of writing, the different voices that can be delivered for different purposes, how to start writing, and – ultimately – how to write a convincing and engaging statement about your work.

Throughout the day, you will be encouraged to identify your interests, and to use writing to channel the purpose of your work and to express your voice. You will be given help to write your own personal statement, and get feedback on your writing in one-to-one, 30-minute follow-up sessions at a later date.

On this course you will:

  • Find ways to get started with writing

  • Develop your own project statement

  • Identify the key elements of your work

  • Gain insights into how you can use text and image

  • Do exercises on how to use writing as a tool for identifying your purpose

  • Experiment with how to simplify language and be direct in your writing

  • Learn how to engage and interest your audience

  • Examine how to adapt your own texts for different audiences

  • Get feedback on your writing in a follow-up one-to-one session with a tutor

I mentor photographers both highly experienced and those who are looking to add a critical element to their practice.

In these mentoring sessions we work together (both in-person and/or online) on how projects can be developed, how theory can tie into practice, how a visual voice can be developed, how text can add to image, how contemporary practice connects to a wider history of photography. If you've never studied photography, I will bring you up to speed on the theory and the practice.

Feel free to contact me with any questions if you are are interested.


Writing for Photographers

Need a text for your project? Do you need some words to get to the heart of your project?

Need a statement that merges theory, practice and what makes your work so unique?

If you do, get in touch. I might be able to help.
