What you will learn in this course.

Mohamed Abdulle is an internationally renowned photographer currently shooting with F1’s Lewis Hamilton. He is a Somali creative, born and raised in East London. His stunning street shots of local legends saw him rise to fame. He now works with incredible brands such as Adidas and Meta, but East London will always be his home. We’ll be exploring the streets of Brick Lane and Whitechapel (Banglatown) to meet and capture some of the local heroes that call this cultural hub, a home.

This piece is supported by Canon UK and talks to how to accurately capture the traditions and culture associated with the Bengali and Pakistani communities that reside here.

Whether used for stills photography or filmmaking, a camera offers the user a unique opportunity to tell a story. Here at Wex Photo Video, we recognise the value of those stories and believe they all deserve to be heard, as they provide an insight into the spectrum of human experiences lived across a nation of creative people.

Our #ChangeTheImage campaign showcases a selection of talented individuals from a variety of cultural backgrounds, all of whom live and work in the UK. Join us for a week of inspiring, entertaining and educational events that reflect the diverse passions, skills and views of our community.
