On the first day of the Photographic Futures unit, we were given ideas of places in which we could do work experience in. Some ideas were galleries, magazine, websites and studios. We were also informed about the insurance policy forms in which we would have to fill out as well as the employer who was taking us up on work experience – this is a requirement that covers any possible injuries. If the employer does not have public liability insurance then there is a website in which we can purchase it ourselves via Artist Newsletter (https://www.a-n.co.uk/about/insurance/).
I had a short tutorial with Jason to discuss places in which I would be interested in spending my 10 days work experience. I have always been drawn to staged photography so things such as theatre and film intrigue me, I will contact theatres and film/tv studios. I will also contact places such as Sky, IVT, BBC and Channel 4 in addition to theatre companies and schools.
