Welcome to Masterclass!

In Masterclass, photographers select their favourite works and, in an interview with us, discuss their image-making process from start to finish.

In each Masterclass, you’ll learn the what, how and why of each featured photograph, as the photographer discusses their approach in the making of that image, from the selection of exposure values, to decisions informing composition, to post-processing techniques used to create the final photograph.

If you’re a beginning photographer, you’ll find Masterclass a valuable learning resource; for more experienced photographers, Masterclass provides a peek into the mind of another creative image maker!

A new Masterclass will be available every few weeks, so come back soon to find out who our next featured Masterclass photographer will be!
