We are very pleased to announce a two-day workshop at the National Portrait Gallery led by photographer Eddie Otchere and Film’s Not Dead.

Through this workshop you will investigate the early years of fashion photography, which saw a shift from illustration to this creative, edgy and boundary-leaping new medium. Using film and classic cameras such as the Rolleiflex and Leica (provided) which pioneered the earliest fashion photographs, you will explore the relationship between illustration, photography and magazines, working with a model in vintage dress both in the studio and on location. The course also allows participants to enjoy the Vogue 100: A Century of Style exhibition. This workshop is suitable for all abilities.

Tickets: £150 (£125 concessions and Gallery Supporters) Book online, or visit the Gallery in person.
