What you will learn in this course.

Join award-winning photographer Anna Neubauerfor this free behind-the-scenes piece on her unique style of portraiture. This course is supported by Canon. We will be talking to her work on representation and confidence-building, alongside gaining insight into how she creates these stunning images.

Her work gives a voice to ordinary individuals from different ethnic, socio-economic, and cultural backgrounds. She aims to expand our understanding of beauty, and explore what we value in ourselves and and in others. Each portrait is an observation and a contemplation; an attempt to outwardly express an internal narrative, to amplify the beauty of the subject and work towards equal representation.

The piece will cover:

• An in-depth discussion around the project.

• Creating a comfortable environment for your subjects.

• Capturing the final image.

• Q&A around the aims of, and ambitions for the project.

Whether used for stills photography or filmmaking, a camera offers the user a unique opportunity to tell a story. Here at Wex, 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 backgrounds, exploring the benefits of photography as a tool to provide therapy, raise awareness and drive social change.
