Pitch Ideas for SNAP 2018
Today we're sharing some ideas for workshops to inspire your pitch. Before we do, we want to tell you that we are welcoming pitches from anyone within the community. You don't have to be the most experienced photographer or the most established community member to have something of value to offer. We all have different skills, experience and strengths that we can share.
If you studied photography formally at university that gives you a different perspective to someone who's self taught. If you know your way around a dark room, that gives you a skill that others might have no experience of. If you shoot street photography or fashion or sport of commercial photography you have skills and experience that you could share with the community.
Here are some ideas for possible shoot / workshop topics, based on feedback from our community about some of the topics they'd like to see covered. This list is by no means exhaustive and we're totally happy to hear what ever creative ideas you'd love to share with us.
