What you will learn in this course.

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 from 24th May for a week of inspiring, entertaining and educational events that reflect the diverse passions, skills and views of our community.

Malkia Roberts is a professional photographer and editor. Working for over 10 years in fashion and beauty photography, she has spent most of her career mastering the art of imagery for editorial purposes. She takes photographs that are unapologetically beautiful and memorable. Having works featured in various international publications, Malkia says ‘I am proud of the deliberate way in which I impose my style on an industry that often overlooks diversity.’

This course is supported by Canon. Malkia will be on-hand during the session to answer any questions you may have.
