“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

f22 launches today to coincide with International Women's Day!

Over the last year there has been a surge in photography groups, 
organisations, awards and initiatives set up in an attempt to equal
out the discrepancy between the numbers of women and men working as 
commercial photographers - currently only 18% of photographers at the
AOP are women!

f22 will exist to provide a dedicated network for open discussion,
share knowledge and most importantly lobby towards changing the 
gender inequality within our industry. #thefstartshere!

If you would like to join the AOP there is a new Accesss membership
@ £25 for the first year.
Or simply follow our progress on Instagram @f22aop

HAPPY WOMEN'S DAY!
