PAN reader Anna Stevens, Producer at London based editorial photo agency Panos Pictures, writes: “Hi Will, I’m producing a workshop for Panos for NGO staff on assigning photography”
Panos’ industry workshops are aimed at communications, digital and media professionals wanting to explore the methods, opportunities and challenges of working with photography and film in a professional environment.
Panos’ Director Adrian Evans:
“Once part of an NGO, Panos Pictures has a unique understanding of the not for profit world and how to tell their stories. With the growth of content and outputs the space for visual communications has become overcrowded, and navigating a path through it is increasingly difficult. We are in a great position to help the NGO community find ways to do this and to share our expertise in engaging new audiences. “
The first workshop will be on 26 June 2019. A one day workshop for charity and NGO staff led by Panos’ director Adrian Evans and photographer Abbie Trayler-Smith at the Photographers’ Gallery in central London.
The workshop aims to offer commissioners new insights into the assigning process, to equip them with the information needed to achieve better working relationships on assignment, and facilitate the best results.
The workshop will focus on practical guidance for photography assignment for content and campaigns. We will look at using professional photographers and agencies to achieve an effective visual approach through critical and collaborative briefing, and scheduling for creative results.
We will explore different approaches to gathering powerful and effective imagery on assignment, and will discuss processes and paperwork involved in commissioning. The workshop will also consider the possibilities of collaboration with the photographer and agency before, during and after the shoot, in order to achieve better results. As part of this we will discuss use and opportunities of social media on assignment.
