Ger Tierney – Commissioning Photography.
Ger Tierney is Photographic Director at Rapha and Founder of The Court, a magazine dedicated to women in sport through the lens of stunning photography launching in 2020.
Ger (short for Geraldine) comes from an editorial background working at i-D for many years where she developed a real interest in seeking out emerging talent in photography and styling and creating a platform for them. Then moving on to British GQ as Photo Director working across GQ and GQ style on covers, features and fashion stories. Ger’s other passion in life is sports and in particular cycling and so she jumped at the chance to work at Rapha the prestigious cycling apparel brand. This year she has developed a magazine dedicated to women in sport that seeks to respond to the challenges, stereotypes and misconceptions that face female athletes through stunning photography and bold writing. The Court will launch in 2020.
BenQ – Preparing Your Images for Web and Print.
Successfully preparing images for web and print is not just about having a great image, it’s about controlling your workflow. BenQ, a leading brand in professional monitors, will be sharing their knowledge on the important aspects that are often overlooked by many, e.g. colour accuracy and gamut range, and what these mean for you as a creative. Focusing on colour accuracy for photographers and graphic designers, they’ll help you to develop more skills in preparing your images for print and web, understanding what we see (and what other viewers see) and how we can optimise this. They’ll also bring some equipment to demonstrate and give you the chance to get hands on.
Intellectual Property Office – How to Protect Your Creative Work Using Intellectual Property.
In this session you will learn about the different Intellectual Property Rights and how they can be used to protect your work. IP covers Patents, Trade Marks, Registered Designs and Copyright. We will explain the differences between each of these rights so that you can develop a clearer understanding on how these apply to you.
Every creative business will own IP, by the end of the session you should be able to determine which IP right is more applicable to you and how you can use it to add value to your work.
See you there!
