The Photography Foundation

THE PHOTOGRAPHY FOUNDATION

The Photography Foundation creates pathways to professional photography for less advantaged young adults in London by offering education, work experience and routes to a career in the creative industries. It’s a simple philosophy with a lasting impact for good.

Our
Approach

For many young creatives, a lack of financial resources, opportunities or network connections mean that a career in their chosen industry is out of reach. The Photography Foundation believes that talent and motivation should be more important than who you know, or where you come from, and it’s their mission to make that a reality.

Through training programmes and community outreach, they remove barriers to entry and open up photography careers by welcoming in the next generation of diverse creative talent. Jamma is proud to support Shoreditch-based The Photography Foundation to help make society a little more equal for tomorrow’s creative visionaries.

Making society a little more equal for tomorrow’s creatives.

Over the course of three months, The Photography Foundation’s trainees are given the tools and education they need to develop the foundational technical skills for a career in photography. Through professional training from industry teachers and hands-on workshops with creative experts, trainees learn the basics, as well as finding the freedom and inspiration to develop their own creative voice.

“This is a place where young people can find inspiration, technical knowledge and an understanding of the creative industry, in a space that offers them the freedom to experiment and find their creative voice.” - Jess Bonham, Photographer

“We may hail from different countries, backgrounds and industries but we have one important thing in common: we all want to make society a little more equal, and we think the Foundation is one way to do that.” The Photography Foundation

The vision of Jamma International is the wellbeing of the planet and its people, we feel passionate about supporting projects that will empower people to improve their wellbeing. We know how to take care of our body but we know very little about how our brain works. If you understand how the brain works, you have the ability to change your behaviour. The first project in Life Skills being developed will focus on the Brain, how it creates our reality and affects our behaviour. Not in a detailed brain science way, but in a way that can help us understand how little the brain has changed since cave men and how this can cause a lot of suffering in todays life.
