A Great Day Out Enjoying Photography and Creating Projects for Photobooks

Contrasting Landscapes : Project Photography and Photobooks Workshop
Skegness and Gibraltar Point
From the Urban Jungle Landscape to the Silence of the Wilderness
in a Day

Wednesday September 18th 2024 10am – 4pm
The workshop focusses on three main areas to develop skills in creating Project Photography and Photobook Content
  • Creating Photography for Photobooks: Participants will learn and apply advanced photography techniques tailored to capturing diverse landscapes, enhancing their ability to create visually compelling images, and how to expose images for a photobook
  • Project and Photo-Essay Development: Participants will develop skills in conceptualising and organising their photographs into cohesive projects and photo-essays, suitable for inclusion in a photobook.
  • Integration of Text and Images: Participants will learn how to effectively combine text with their images to create more engaging and informative photo-essays, overcoming any fears related to writing and enhancing their storytelling capabilities.What stories will you tell?
    This one day workshop is a great way to improve your story-telling photography, learn some new project and photobook skills, and spend time enjoying photography at a relaxed pace with a small group of like-minded people.
    The itinerary is carefully planned around a series of activities and assignments that will help you create projects and photo-essays that are ideal for creating content for cohesive and distinctive photobooks.
    Led by professional photographer Stewart Wall, who wrote the criteria for the RPS Photobook Distinction Genre, he will share with you the skills he learnt as a press photographer in how to create story-telling photography projects for photobooks.

    At the start of the workshop you will be give a complimentary copy of the workbook that Stewart has created to guide you through the activities. You will use the workbook, with Stewart’s guidance throughout the day, and then take it home with you to remind you of what we did.

After the workshop you will be invited to submit work for a collabrative photobook, and you will be sent a complimentary copy of it. The book is part of very special series and has a beautiful hard cover and a lovely paper inside. As you enjoy looking through it you will be able to learn more from seeing what projects and photo-essays your workshop colleagues created at the same time as you created yours. The photobooks prove very popular amongst attendees and some have started to build a collection of them. The photobook above is from a previous workshop to Skegness and Gibraltar Point.

Return to Skegness and Gibraltar Point

These two landscapes are very different to each other, and yet are only a few miles apart. They are ideal for making very interesting project and photobook content. We visited them both earlier in the year and now return in September, during a different season to see how the landscape has changed. Below are some of the pages from the earlier visit.

Sometimes workshop attendees worry about adding words to their images. The workshop content helps you overcome these fears and gives you methods to do so. You can just supply the images through and we will add the words for you if you prefer.

 We stop for many breaks to socialise during the workshop

The Tutor: Stewart Wall

In 2020 the Royal Photographic Society commissioned Stewart to write the criteria for a new distinctions genre called ‘Photo-books’ which he chaired for the first two years of its existance. He is also a Chair and Assessor of the Licentiate Distinction. He is an avid creator of photo-books and has plans to create 100 photo-books in 2024.

Stewart has been a professional photographer since he was taken on as a staff press photographer for The Brentwood Gazetter in 1978 whilst he was still technically a school boy. He went on to freelance for Fleet Street supplying images to newspapers such as The Sunday Times, The Express and the The Daily Mail.

In more recent times, over the last decade he has returned to school and completed a BA (hons) degree in Photography, an MA in Visual Communication (using photography) and a Level 7 PGCE teaching qualification in Lifelong Learning.
