Breaking into the creative industries is tougher than ever before. That’s why we’ve partnered with IdeasTap to offer 20 photographers an incredible training opportunity.

Aimed at photographers at the start of their careers, Magnum’s Professional Practice event is a two-day masterclass hosted at Magnum Photos’ London Print Room, organised as part of IdeasTap Inspires.

During the weekend high profile photography experts will discuss the practical business of photography and pass on their invaluable industry knowledge.

Topics covered may include: the commercial print sale market, advertising shoots, commissioning for NGOs, image licensing, publishing photographic books, the modern editorial market, funding and organising exhibitions.

A second day will provide photographers with an opportunity to have an honest, constructive critique of their portfolios, by our industry specialists.

The weekend is a unique opportunity to begin establishing a professional network of peers and useful industry contacts, and to identify entry realistic routes into employment.

Previous speakers have included Monica Allende – Sunday Times Magazine, David Birkitt – DMB Media, Steve Macleod – Metro Imaging, Cheryl Newman – Telegraph Magazine, Michael Mack – MACK and Greg Hobson – National Media Museum.
