I have taught documentary photography in a variety of settings and to a range of different groups for over ten years. I am currently course leader of the London College of Communication’s innovative MA Photojournalism and Documentary Photography (part time), a programme which has been conducted entirely online since 2008, and which and brings student groups scattered across the globe together in a virtual classroom.
Alongside this I teach intermittently on the five other photography courses at the college, and I am also a visiting tutor at other universities around the United Kingdom and abroad. I have given lectures and workshops for institutions including the Universities of South Wales, Westminster, Coventry, and Falmouth, the Royal Academy of Arts, Netherlands , Gobelins – École de l’image, France, and The International Centre for Photography, United States.
I have also taught short courses and workshops with organisations including Magnum Photos, Photofusion, the School of Punktum, and I have been a tutor on Autograph ABP’s Album Project, an extra-curricular course for 16 to 18 year-old Londoners and which explores notions of community, memory, and social and cultural identity. I have also taught photography to school and community groups, from primary school level to adult, across a wide range of ability levels and settings including in a Category B prison. I have a Postgraduate Certificate Academic Practice in Art, Design and Communication, I am an associate fellow of the Higher Education Academy, have a 2019 Disclosure and Barring Service check and I am a qualified first aider.
I run my own program of workshops taught from my studio in south London. Going under the name of The Studio Workshops, they emphasise low cost, small groups and an intensive, practical focus. Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic these workshops have been conducted entirely online. For information on the program and upcoming workshops see here.
