About the presenters:
Based in London, Hanina graduated from Ravensbourne in 2018, with a first class honours degree in Digital Photography. Having wanted to be a fashion photographer since she was 14 years old, she has already shot for Nike, Office, UGG, Sleek Makeup, Boohoo, Hypebae, Timberland and Skinnydip, to name just a few international clients. Her style is a blend of colourful, empowering, fresh and youthful images that she achieves by combining her skills behind the camera and working with her models both on in the studio and on location.
Born in Adelaide, Australia, Shelby is a documentary and street photographer based in Bristol. She gained a BA (Hons) in Documentary Photography at the University of Wales College, Newport where she spent time exploring ideas of lost childhood and loneliness and the notion of the family.
As a grass-roots documentary photographer, portraiture is a huge component in Emma’s work. Whether working on commissioned projects on location such as the current Our Living Levels or working with her commercial clients on high-end portraits in the studio, Emma is an adaptable and variable professional photographer.
Indira’s most recent project with Great British racing drivers, supported by Epson, will be exhibited at the new Silverstone Experience Centre opening soon. Featuring racing legends such as Sterling Moss and Nigel Mansell she also focuses on emerging talent such as Jamie Chadwick whom was the first ever woman to win a British F3 race.
Julia is a worldwide acclaimed and exhibited fine-art photographer. Her work now encompasses 12 major projects spanning a decade of engagement in the field. Her more recent projects consider social issues, often covering controversial subject matter. For example, in ‘Feral Children, 2015’, Julia re-enacts fifteen reported historical cases of feral children.
Anastasia is a creative portrait photographer with an emphasis on movement and dance. Being a professional dancer for the last 10 years, she is greatly passionate about incorporating movement into her fashion and lifestyle portraiture.
With over a decade in the photographic industry, covering weddings and teaching photography, Amanda currently works a Team Manager in the Contact Centre at Wex Photo Video. Her photographic credits include working as a photographer for world-class polo teams including the Gold Cup winners in 2012.
An award-winning photographer and Zeiss ambassador, Verity shares her secrets to capturing images out on-location. From landscape to architecture, her work excels in showing stunning, hidden gems around the city.
Amy Moore is Wex Photo Video’s Technical Editor for Photography. Amy enjoys numerous types of photography, especially landscapes and meteorological photography.
Polly is a London based photographer and street photography educator, with a background in the travel industry. Polly freelances for a variety of clients as well as owning and operating The Photo Weekender – a company offering small group street photography weekend tours in Europe.
