Who is this for?
- People aged between 16 to 25 year olds and who face barriers to accessing the arts
Stills School is an alternative photography school for 16—25 year olds. Delivered in two distinct stages young people can develop photography skills at a pace and level that suits everyone.
The school is free of charge. All materials and equipment are provided, and we can cover travel expenses too.
Stage 1 | Contact
Contact is an introductory photography course that will teach you basic photography skills as well as encourage you to develop your own projects. You don’t need any experience in making photographs, just a passion for photography.
In a small group you will learn about different photographers and be supported to find your own style. Whether you prefer analogue or digital, we’ll make sure you feel confident using your new skills. Everyone will have prints to take home or download at the end of the course.
Stage 2 | Stills Academy
Stills Academy is a programme designed to allow participants the time and space to develop their own photography project with support from Stills tutors. In a small group you will meet weekly, where you will develop existing photography skills and learn new ones in a relaxed and supportive environment. The weekly sessions will include;
- Access to Stills facilities and equipment
- Group gallery and site visits
- One-to-one tutor review sessions
- Group discussions
At the end of the Academy you will have expanded your technical skills, learned more about historical and contemporary photographers and gained confidence in discussing your work with others. You will also be part of a large community of young people who share similar interests and enjoy ongoing support from Stills.
