Three Magnum photographers: Carl De Keyzer, Mark Power and Donovan Wylie will be leading a five day workshop for advanced photographers providing an exciting opportunity to build a new body of work under the guidance of experienced practitioners. The event is organised in collaboration with Brighton Photo Biennale and will be held at the Centre for Research and Development at The University Of Brighton.

The Masterclass

22 successful candidates will spend five days with all three photographers developing visual language, technical and conceptual skills and individual photographic identity. Through an intensive five days of progressive picture taking, candidates will produce an individual project under the same structure as professional assignments.


The workshop is aimed at advanced photographers, both amateur and professional, who will be selected on the strength of portfolios submitted online to the lead photographers. These portfolios should consist of 10 images and reflect the individual photographic interests and style of the applicant. Portfolios should include projects shot over a significant period of time and ideally be edited in the form of photographic essays.


£800 plus VAT (does not include travel, accommodations or on the ground expenses)
