Flashpoint Labs is not a typical photography agency or training academy.
Our agency prides itself not only on brilliant imagery and exceptional client experiences but also on social impact. On every job, where possible, we have young people from diverse backgrounds working as apprentices alongside professional photographers to get real on-the-job work experience. All our professional photographers are also mentors to the next generation of socially conscious creative professionals.
Our training academy runs changemaking photography programs and workshops that explore more than just how to use a camera and create beautiful imagery. We focus on how to tell a story, how to convey a powerful message, how to make change and how to build a sustainable career as a socially conscious creative professional.
Our programs are based on action learning, because photographers and changemakers learn best by doing, and they learn best from their peers and practitioners in the field.
Our uniqueness also lies in the depth and length of our support, and in the emphasis on supporting and developing the whole individual. Our support is ongoing, though we are committed to seeing our participants go on to learn and earn on their own.
