With celebrated photographer, Honey Salvadori

Smartphones, cameras and social media have revolutionised creativity and how we see the world. This lunchtime class will offer you time to explore your creative instincts and develop your technical expertise in digital photography in a practical and interactive way.

No previous experience of photography or other qualifications are necessary, but you will need a digital camera or smartphone capable of taking photographs.

Through a series of creative challenges, explored on photo-walks and in the CLCC studio, your tutor will help you to develop your creative photographic ‘voice’. You will learn how to get the best from your camera or camera phone through editing and post production workshops, and explore social media and website creation using your photographic images to build an audience for your work.

At the end of the course you will graduate with a portfolio of photographic images that will be the foundation for your own future creative practice in photography.

Photograph of Honey Salvatori

After leaving Art School, Honey Salvadori began her career in editorial and commercial photography by working for several press offices, including the London Film Festival, and contributed to magazines including the Face and Time Out.

In the late 1980s she began working for Q magazine which led to a five year long phase of documenting bands on tour with her trademark satirical eye, including Bros, Joe Strummer and the Pogues, Texas (in Texas), the Beautiful South and L7 amongst many others.  She also worked for Vox magazine, the Telegraph and Sunday Times magazine during this time.  

Honey then went on to spend a decade as a photographer at Channel 4 and the BBC producing promotional photographs for series like the BBC’s Airport and Jailbirds and Channel 4’s Cutting Edge and the Girlie Show.  At the same time she contributed documentary features to magazines including Elle, Marie Claire and Italian Moda.

Honey is represented in numerous collections, including the National Portrait Gallery.
