MA Commercial Photography host a workshop at The Photographers’ Gallery to show the prospects of a Photography Career.

The Seminar welcomes three successful young Photographers to speak about the work they make and their careers, two of the speakers are AUB Photography alumni. The Seminar takes place on the 23rd February at The Photographers’ Gallery, Ramillies Street, London between 2 – 5pm. To book a place please email Prof. Paul Wenham-Clarke, pwenhamclarke@aub.ac.uk

MA Commercial Photography Course leader, Professor. Paul Wenham-Clarke explains:

“In recent times we have heard a lot of negative comments about the future of photography as a career, and how difficult it is now to make it. However, there are young photographers out there full of positivity and talent that are making waves. They prove that changes in the industry can be viewed as a threat, or better thought as an opportunity. The three photographers gathered here will provide a wonderful insight to anyone else that chooses to follow them.”

Speakers at the event include:

MOLLIE ROSE

She is an Instagram sensation with over 16 thousand followers and uses social media to create new opportunities and promote her photography business.

Her clients include: ASOS, BAFTA, Lazy Oaf, Peta, Puma, Tommy Hilfiger, Schwarzkopf & SkinnyDip London. See Mollie’s work on her website.

CHARLIE CLIFT

No photoshoot is the same for Charlie, he has dangled CEOs upside down, been shouted at by political leaders, waded up to his chest in floodwaters, dived with sharks, gone undercover with cops, and discussed peace with Nobel Prize winners. His drive is to tell personal stories in an intimate and unique way. He clients include The BBC, BAFTA, The Sunday Times Magazine, The Premier League, AXA, The British Council, Action for Children and many others. When he’s not on commissions you will find him shooting personal work like Brits in Europe, a collective portrait of British emigrants, and Let’s Talk, his current project encouraging people to share their mental health difficulties. He is a rising star of photography and you will have seen his work in The Creative Review Photo Annual, the Taylor Wessing Photo Prize, The Association of Photographers Awards and the British Journal of Photography. See Charlie’s work.

MITCH PAYNE

After graduating from AUB Mitch soon found an agent and his very proactive attitude paid off quickly. He shoots predominately commissioned still life work, but this also includes cars and models. Mitch is one of the new breed of professionals who also shoots video as well as stills. He has his own London studio and has worked on many campaigns we have all seen, for clients such as British Airways, Transport for London, Wired, Adidas, Ferrari, British GQ, Esquire, Seiko, John Lewis, Marks & Spencer, Nike Global & Financial Times.
