I attended the ‘How to fund your photography project’ led by Photographer Cinzia D’Ambrosi in November. I am working on a personal photo series to exhibit in March and wanted to learn from Cinzia how best to approach companies for funding, whether it be the Arts Council or a financial company with a budget for sponsorship. Myself and the other participants shared our project with the group, which was helpful in getting feedback from Cinzia and the other participants. It allowed us to all find out what we needed to work on and what the strengths of our project was. Cinzia was great in sharing her knowledge of past funding experience and in giving us tips on how to approach companies for sponsorship. The knowledge passed on, gave me the confidence to approach more companies that I believed would be interested. I found this workshop to be invaluable and found Cinzia to be helpful, knowledgeable and approachable.  I look forward to her future workshops. – Nyla S.

“I trained as a photojournalist/documentary photographer but have been working in other areas and projects over the past few years. I wanted to refresh and update my knowledge and saw the workshop ‘How to become a Humanitarian Photographer’ run by Cinzia. I looked up her background and photojournalism experience and as the cost of the workshop was very reasonable I applied to attend. It was a great workshop attended by a small enthusiastic group. Cinzia shared her knowledge and experience, was friendly and informative and her enthusiasm, skills and knowledge were greatly appreciated by myself and the rest of the group. I would highly recommend her as a workshop facilitator and will attend future events and exhibitions that she is running. ” – Gerry

“The workshop provided us with great practical exposure into humanitarian photography. Cinzia is a very knowledgeable and experienced documentary photographer. Thanks to the low number of participants, the interaction and the exchange of information has been great. Highly recommended, Cinzia is very approachable and gave real life examples and tips on how to improve or start a career in humanitarian photography.” – Edoardo
