Photography workshop with Jonathan Perugia

Join us for an in-depth photography masterclass with photographer Jonathan Perugia.

Jonathan has worked for a number of NGOs over his career and advocates for charities and media to be more mindful of power dynamics when commissioning photographers.

We will be looking at a number of issues including how UK-based media officers can most effectively work with freelancers. The event will be chaired by our Advocacy Director Gareth Benest. Topics covered will include:

  • Working with in-country photographers.
  • Preparing effective briefs.
  • Photography discussion.
  • The decolonisation agenda.
  • Considerations for photography aimed at publishing in various media outlets.

The event will last from 10am to 1pm on Wednesday 13th December over Zoom.
