ONE-DAY WORKSHOP: Saturday 25 May 10:30-17:30 / (12 places only) £150
A full day photography workshop with Chris Steele-Perkins and Laura Noble.
This one-day workshop is aimed at photographers that have a body of work in progress or a completed project which could potentially also be a book, series or editorial photo story. The book could be of any scale such as a Café Royale publication or a larger monograph to be produced by yourself or a publisher.
At this workshop you will discuss your work collectively, gaining advice and direction from Chris, Laura and your fellow participants. The aim is to leave at the end of the day with a cohesive direction and edit of the work to function best within the context you wish to place it. You will be given guidance if a project needs to be expanded or edited down to a concise position.
10.30 – 11: The day will begin with a brief talk from Chris about books he has produced over the years with and without text and projects he considered as book projects from their inception and those which weren’t but became books later.
11 – 13.00: Each photographer will present a brief overview of their project for a maximum 10 minutes each which will include input from Chris, Laura and the group. We will ask you to send this to us as a simple PDF document beforehand by 2pm Friday 24 May (please see the example PDF below) with no more than 40 images per project. See example here.
13.00 – 13.40: Break for lunch.
13.40 – 17.30: The afternoon will be spent as a group looking at each project on paper (see details below) individually to assess any additions or subtractions to conceive something approaching a final edit. Both Laura and Chris will work their way around the group so that everyone has one-to-one time with them. During each editing session, we expect the rest of the group to observe the advice given by both mentors whilst waiting for their own session, as most of the advice given to other participants will be relevant to themselves. (There will also be a short break midway through the afternoon)
This workshop will be focussing on content and projects specifically, not on giving advice on how to approach agents and publishers. We wish to nurture your creative output and gain the maximum impact from your project.
1. Prepare and send a PDF to email@example.com by Thursday 23 May. We will show them in the order that we receive them.
2. Each individual image printed out maximum size A6 (postcard size) for the editing session in the afternoon THIS IS ESSENTIAL as we cannot print works on site on the day. They will be laid out and arranged and rearranged for the edit (maximum 40 prints).
3. You may also bring a portfolio printed or on a laptop/tablet for reference, however this is not essential.
What to bring:
1. A notebook and pen/pencil.
2. Your project printed out as individual prints.

Chris Steele-Perkins ‘Portfolio reviews for me are about finding out about you, what you have done and how committed you’ve been to it’
Laura is happy to see completed and incomplete projects which need direction. Advising on both aesthetic, stylistic and thematic concerns she will give research guidance, from both a practical and technical standpoint. She will also advise on where your work may appeal in both the art and commercial spheres of photography. In appraising your work, from both perspectives with Laura’s keen eye for detail she will be showing you how to find and connect to your audience. Using her breadth of art history knowledge from all aspects and genres she will suggest other artists/photographers to look at and give examples of parallel philosophies to compliment your approach to your work and/or a specific project - often suggesting avenues to look into in the future, beyond the workshop sessions. Finding the historical context of your work to guide you through the theoretic areas of your photography, which can prove fruitful when exhibiting and discussing your work in the future with gallerists, publishers and curators. Laura will help you to gain confidence on both your work and engagement with the wider art/editorial world.

This is simply like a photographic gym workout that takes you out of your comfort zone. You will shoot on least four subjects or themes, over a two hour period, concentrating on the workout assignments I give you and I have no intention telling you what they will be until 16.00 on Sat 15th June.

Shooting, review and talk by Laura Noble
08:00 – 09:00 Meeting
09:00 – 13:00 Shooting new work
The best way of improving as a photographer is very simple: doing, being critical of what you have done, then doing more.
14:00 – 15:00 Talk by Laura Noble on editioning and pricing / working in a series, followed by a Q&A.
Talk: When working in a series there are many decisions to make in order to tell your story or complete your narrative. Laura will discuss the movable object which is working in a series, how to approach a project through preparation and foreseeing potential hurdles which can be overcome through her easy to follow steps. She will also discuss the presentation of said series and how different approaches can yield different outcomes, depending on where and how they are delivered and exhibited. Titling images, when is it best to title each one individually v's one series title and keeping the images all 'untitled' as part of a bigger whole, amongst other considerations?
She will also give advice on the best ways to edition and price your work appropriately for your chosen area/market. Editioning principles are very specific and important to collectors including private and public clients and institutions. Learning how best to edition correctly and how it can help your work appeal to collectors and galleries.
15:00 – 18:00 Review and edit work to establish chosen final selection.
The hope is you will have learned enough to help you on your way as a photographer. Give it a try.

Chris Steele-Perkins In Conversation with Laura Noble
Magnum Photographer Chris Steele-Perkins will be in conversation with Laura Noble about his most recent photographic endeavour. Four years in the making New Londoners documents his project whereby he photographed and interviewed 164 families in their homes (with their myriad meanings of family) from 187 countries, that are now living in London. They will discuss his own experience as a half Burmese migrant to the UK and the extraordinary insights he gained from embarking on this epic project.
There will also be an exclusive preview and discussion about his forthcoming exhibition at Photofusion 'In Brixton' with works taken from 1973 -1995, taken whilst Chris lived in Brixton followed by a Q&A. A crowdfunding campaign to raise the funds to produce a book of this unique portrait of London can be found here.

Form & Function by Chloe Rosser: Exhibition 10 May - 18 Ju
Workshop with Chloe Rosser & Laura Noble
In the spirit of the exhibition 'Form & Function' by Chloe Rosser; Chloe & Laura Noble worked with participants to create their own figurative imagery exploring the depiction of the body in unconventional ways. The morning focused on technique, shape, structure, light & form with participants working together & experimenting with the technique used by Rosser, thus re-interpreting the traditional dynamics of the model photographer relationship.
Avoiding well trodden clichés, each participant had the opportunity to photograph live life models in the afternoon, bringing their morning preparatory photographic exploration into practice. We are thrilled to share some of the resulting imagery here.
Artists featured took part in Chloe Rosser and Laura Noble Workshop see capture hover over the images.

Workshop with Sandra Jordan

Sat 22 October: Artist Led Workshop
Time: 11.00 - 17.00
£150 per person
This was a full-day workshop open to anyone over 18 with an interest in pursuing photography both personally and professionally. Participants were also invited to bring a small portfolio (max 15 images) for a review with LANG Director Laura Noble.
The workshop focused on improving visual literacy, using architecture and the surrounding streets as your playground. Participants explored the use of elements of design (line, pattern, form) to create stronger images linking them together to create a coherent body of work.
The day started with a short talk by Sandra about her work, after which the group went off site onto the streets searching for the unseen. Each participant had the opportunity to spend time working with Sandra on location, whom answered any questions they had. This was then followed by a viewing session and group discussion on their images.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable day, we were so impressed with everyone who took part; so here is a preview for you:
