“I’ve made it my mission to support women working in the creative industries”

 

Sheryl Garratt former editor of The Face and Observer magazines is hosting a new workshop with her aim to help independent creative women thrive in the photography industry.
Wednesday 6th November 2019 18.00 – 20.30
NUJ Offices, Headland House, 72 Acton Street, London WC1X 9NB

“The creative industries are all in a state of flux, and the old ways of earning a living from our work no longer feel reliable. How do we find security, certainty, focus and direction in a working world that feels like it’s constantly changing? How do we step up and make the work we really want to make? And as women, how do we juggle it all without burning out?”

Sheryl Garratt has earned a living as a writer for more than 30 years. She was the editor of The Face and The Observer magazine, and has worked closely with some of the world’s best photographers. She is also a life coach working with freelancers and creatives of all kinds, helping them create a life they love, do work they are proud of – and get paid for it.

In this two-hour workshop, she’ll present ten foundations to put into place, to help you grow your business and do your best work.

 “I believe that the world needs new stories, new ideas, and innovations with integrity. It needs our creativity more than ever, which why I’ve made it my mission to support women working in the creative industries. 

I don’t know all of the answers. But I have some very good questions which can help you find your own way.”

The workshop is hosted by f22 the new women’s photography group at the Association of Photographers

 

 

I am truly delighted to receive a prestigious Association of Photographers' 
GOLD award!
The AOP Awards are generally acknowledged as the photography BAFTAs and
gold is their highest accolade.  There is no given with a gold; some years
there are none awarded, it is simply at the discretion of the judges.
This year there were eight golds and two of them went to women photographers,
this ratio reflecting the current statistics of women photographers working
within our industry.
I received my award in the Fashion & Beauty category, and my fellow female
awardee is the talented Tina Hillier for her Documentary series. 
Click to see all of this year's finalists.

My thanks to all of the team who worked on this story with me: Art Director
Jo Bell, Stylist Maria Francolini, Hair & makeup Lizzie Court, Photo Assistant
Julie Stewart and of course Liddie Holt & Vincent(pictured) and Forever
Young magazine for publishing.
Although the nature of our industry has changed in recent years as traditional
magazines disappear from the newsstands, it is our love of photography
that continues to fire our passion to create what we always hope will
be beautiful, memorable imagery. 
Pictured with me above are my friend and talented art director Jo Bell, and
also my wonderful and supportive agents Anita Grossman & Rosie Harrison
of A&R CREATIVE who have been representing me a record-breaking twenty five years!
Massive thanks to Clara Mercer from the British Fashion Council who judged
my category and chose my winning picture!  And to Seamus, Rachel, Nick and all
team AOP for putting on a cracking show at the East Wintergarden, Canary Wharf.
See you all next year!

p.s. The exhibition showing all 200+ Awards finalists is still on show
at One Canada Square until the end of May and, as overheard at the Awards
party, "I've just seen the exhibition and was surprised at how much better
the pictures looked in print than on my screen." Now there's an idea...
