Description

Have you ever thought about telling your research story through the universal language of photography?

This training will help you reach diverse audiences even simply by taking photographs with a smartphone! The workshop will look at how you can use photography as a tool to translate the key messages in your research work, the different styles and techniques to do so, and basic technical & software editing skills to perfect your shots.

You will have the opportunity for a one-to-one 20-minute session with the trainer where you can discuss your ideas and questions and get project specific help.

The training will be led by Domininkas Zalys. Dom’s career in the creative industry began in Florence and further developed studying photography at the Cambridge School of Art. Dom has worked with Wired Magazine, Jordan Belford, Prof Stephen Hawking, and many more established people and businesses around the world.
