Responsible Photography Photo Projects

Responsible photography photo projects - collaborative and participatory photography
 Introducing and encouraging people of all ages to develop skills and explore life through cameras and photographs

Responsible Photography was founded by Gail Ward to develop collaborative and participatory partnerships and activities in education, culture and photography.

The main aim of Responsible Photography Photo Projects is to give people who may not otherwise have the opportunity, regardless of age, ability or background,  the chance to do something so many of us take for granted - enjoy photography.

Through using cameras and photographs, Responsible Photography facilitate projects, shared experiences, opportunities to learn and develop new skills,  and encourage participants to explore life whilst having lots of fun! 

Responsible Photography Photo Projects:-

  • Encourage respect, understanding and positive experiences
  • Encourage children, young people and adults of different abilities or with learning challenges, to have fun with photography
  • Provide an opportunity for expression and creativity
  • Help participants gain confidence in themselves
  • Enable those who are, often not from choice, the subjects of photography to be able to take their own photographs
  • Give opportunities to children, young people or adults who are often over-looked.
  • Develop skills or resources for participants to use
  • Encourage children and young people to pursue their education and further studies
  • Most important of all - photo projects are fun, collaborative and participatory for everyone involved!

Outcomes of  Responsible Photography Photo Project's include:-

  • introducing photography as not only fun, but as an educational or income-generating resource
  • providing a direct perspective on life, for example,  in a village or environment, through the eyes of the people, and in particular, the children, who live there.
  • encouraging the use of photography as a form of inter-cultural communication between participants and people from different  countries who speak different languages and who have different ways of life.
  • gives someone the chance to have their own photographs of  where they live,  or of themselves.
  • developing an economic benefit by turning photographs into cards and gifts which can be sold to generate income.
