TPF Talks

TPF TALKS are free monthly events that amplify under-represented voices to encourage the next generation of photographers and creatives to be part of the conversation, build their networks, and create space for themselves in the industry.

What to expect

TPF TALKS are a space for young people to ask questions, network and support each other to grow in the industry. Our events are aimed at 18-25 year olds in London who are from an under-represented background, and here’s what to expect on the day:

  • Photographers talking about their work and sharing their journey into photography, focusing on representation
  • Networking with other photographers and creatives
  • An opportunity to speak to current and past trainees about our Training Programme, and register your interest if you’re considering applying
  • A chance to look around our studio and space
  • Drinks and table-tennis, because why not!

TPF Talks 2021 Monthly Programme

June 15th

The first instalment of TPF TALKS will take place during Pride month and will be focused on the voices of the Queer community and folks that centre the LGBTQIA+ community in their work.

July 13th

As our launch of TPF TALKS missed this year’s International Women’s Day, we will have a belated celebration and use July’s event to centre the voices of women in photography.

August 10th

August is a month associated with carnival, and we will use this event to celebrate migrant communities that have settled and impacted the culture of their new homes.

September 28th

Usually a time to prepare for the return to school, college or university, we want to flip the script and use our September event to celebrate youth culture, focussing on both emerging photographers and people who centre youth culture in their work – book your free ticket here.

October 19th

October marks Black History Month, one of the most important dates in the calendar. We will amplify Black photographers and people telling stories about the diaspora – book your free ticket here.

November 16th

With movements such as Movember encouraging men to talk about their physical and mental health, we want to use this event to spotlight male photographers who centre men’s vulnerability and deconstruct toxic masculinity – book your free ticket here.

December 14th

As the year draws to a close, December’s event will be a chance to gather and reflect on the turbulent year gone by and imagine our hopes for the year ahead. There will be drinks and festive snacks aplenty, as ’tis the season to be jolly – book your free ticket here.
