    What you will learn in this course.

    UK Black Female Photographers – UKBFTOG – is a photographic community who is dedicated to amplifying the voices of black female photographers and videographers in the UK. In this interview, we discuss the community’s mission that strives for fairness and equality in a male-dominated industry and to discover the creative talent that so often is missed.

    The Living The Dream Exhibition, held at FUJIFILM House of Photography, is a celebration of the UKBFTOG’s community talent. Showcasing 51 black female photographers, this exhibition invites us to witness a moment in history - a moment in history where black female artists are given a platform to share their work, have their voices amplified and connect with like-minded individuals.

    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.
