I’m a little overawed to have been asked to give a guest lecture at the august Edinburgh College of Art this Tuesday, in the main lecture theatre, on the topic “Haggis and Vodka: working as a documentary photographer in Scotland and Russia.” ECA nowadays is part of Edinburgh University. What an opportunity to talk ‘at’ a semi-captive audience about things that interest me! The plan is to tread a delicate line between keeping the audience awake but not actually have them stampeding for the doors.
I’ll be talking about my own work, but also about some business aspects of working as a photographer – negotiating with clients, running personal projects alongside earning a living, that kind of thing. I am looking forward to it!
Here’s a copy of the poster:
