It was a real pleasure to train six British Council staff members from across their South Asia offices at a duckrabbit ‘Photography for Multimedia’ workshop. They were incredibly motivated to learn and even embraced the downpours of last week to go out into London and get practising!
The course was designed to develop the participant’s skills in photography for use on the ground in their programmes, at the same time as giving them foundations in one of the key building blocks for photofilms – looking ahead to multimedia production.
The participants, from Sri Lanka, Afghanisation, Pakistan, India and Bangladesh, wanted to develop their skills to be able to communicate the stories from their programmes across both print and online media.
It was an action packed workshop where we combined technical training with discussion, demonstration and practical exercises to train the participants in fundamental photography skills and storytelling and the transition into shooting and commissioning photography for multimedia productions.
It was fantastic to work with a group so energetic to learn and to see their skills develop over the course.
Here are a few shots of them in action:
