Women Who Photo


Women Who Photo

 

Women Who Photo is a campaign launched by The Photography Show and The Video Show 2019 to shine a light on some amazing female photographers and filmmakers in this male-dominated industry. The aim is not to exclude or bash men in the industry, simply to encourage women in this field to shout more about their work and their passion for these mediums, as well as inspiring other women to consider it as a career or hobby.

The show has partnered with a fantastic group of 15 women who all come from different backgrounds, are at different stages of their careers and cover various aspects of photography and filmmaking / videography. They’ve shared their stories about how they got into the industry and why they love it, as well as submitting a piece of work they’ve done that has made them feel empowered. These works will be on display at the show in March.

Many of the women involved will also be speaking and hosting events at the show, so please visit our ‘what’s on’ page to find out more.
