Professional photography seminars in Brighton
Magnum’s Professional Practice seminars deliver guidance and networking opportunities from a wide range of visual imaging professionals as part of the Brighton Photo Biennale’s ‘Development Week’
In this two day event, taking place from 13-14 October, leading figures of the photographic industry deliver presentations and advice on the best means in engaging with and the realities of working in their sectors.
Speakers at the event routinely work with photographers; commissioning, selecting, editing and purchasing images for a range of purposes. In these organised seminars, industry experts pass on their knowledge to photographers wishing to further their understanding of the business of photography. A variety of sectors are covered, including advertising and corporate, editorial, gallery, NGO, museum, publishing and rights management.
The seminars are said to allow emerging photographers to begin establishing a professional network, including both peer and industry contacts, and to identify realistic entry routes into employment and paid opportunities. The event is aimed at a wide range of photographers at different stages in their careers: professional photographers working in a particular discourse but wanting to explore other avenues; emerging photographers who require practical, vocational training; or semi-professional photographers wishing to make the commitment to full time practice.
It is also an opportunity for non-photographers interested in working within the visual arts industry to receive an overview of the wide variety of jobs available in this sector; from picture researchers, to art buyers and gallery workers.
