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
