What you will learn in this course.

Lynsey Addario is a photojournalist whose work covers conflict, humanitarian crisis and women's issues across the Middle East. Her work has been featured across publications usch as The New York Times and National Geographic.

This piece is supported by Nikon and talks to how to approach working in conflict zomes, and in journalism in general. We'll discuss how she approaches these types of topics; journalism has to take an unbias approach in order to tell the full story. We'll also talk to access and career building.

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.
