Under the guidance of documentary photographer and photojournalist Cinzia D’Ambrosi, this session is about having your portfolio and/or your ongoing photography project reviewed and given tailored advice for it to be submitted to an Open Call, presented to editors, or proposed for funding.
The session will not only provide individual feedback on specific project development but also consideration on what is the best way to present and publish it and guidance on moving forward. You will receive help to advance and complete the finishing phase of a project and bringing it ready for publishing.
The two hour session will provide tailored review of a portfolio of photography work with feedback on its presentation, and where best to be shown for opportunities in gaining photography commissions, assignments as well as opportunities for growing your existing photography network and business. Moreover, it will be an opportunity to also explore ideas on reaching out to the people that are envisioned in your photographic stories.
Every session is an unique experience where you can ask specific questions, receive advice and ideas for expanding your network.
Relevant key areas explored in your one to one session are: tools for improving your practice, exploring narrative choices and intentions, finding your individual vision, identifying your public, advancing your visual voice.

Photojournalism Hub in Conversation with Ryan Thomas

Som Prabh from the Photojournalism Hub was in conversation with award winning photojournalist Ryan Thomas on his photobook ‘Everything Will Kill You, So Choose Something Proactive’. The photobook is a collection of images shot from 2018 to 2022, mostly shot in Britain, with additional photographs taken in America and France. The work focuses on sublime, chaotic, and even peaceful (albeit disruptive) elements and has become an exploratory research into the similarities that bind rapidly fluid groups of people and the unpredictable energy that ensues. Ryan is a 23-year-old photojournalist currently based in Bristol, UK. He has an MA in Photojournalism from the University of Wales Trinity St. David’s Swansea. Ryan grew up in rural Wisconsin but have deep roots embedded in west Wales, the Land of my Fathers. Ryan covers a range of documentary subjects and has worked with a number of charities and enjoys being involved with intimate and personal projects just as much as the active aspects of protests and rallies. He has had editorial commissions with Huck Magazine, WalesOnline, Daily Mom, Oxfam UK, and DeafBlind UK and has had the good grace to be shortlisted for RPS International Photography Exhibition 164 2022 and reached 3rd place at the Arizona Congressional Photo Competition 2016.
