Bespoke Training

We can deliver training designed around your project needs

If you or your organisation are thinking of running your own participatory photography project, but would like some support or insight into developing it, PhotoVoice is able to provide a bespoke training course and additional consultancy support.

This is available as a 4-day in-person course (6 days online), which is based on PhotoVoice’s acclaimed training course, with key aspects of the curriculum tailored to the specific needs of your project.

We can deliver the training in person, or online.

The online training is delivered via our learning platform in a hybrid format which includes three 3.5 hour long live sessions and independent learning in-between sessions that includes videos, reading and reflective assignments. 

Available modules include: 
  • What is participatory photography?
  • Photography as a participatory medium
  • Visual literacy
  • Workshop and project design practicalities
  • Facilitation skills
  • Ethics, informed consent and copyright
  • Understanding and working with risk
  • Creating a safe space
  • Working with text
  • Participatory editing
  • Creating outputs
  • Research
  • Working online
  • Advocacy and campaigns

We will also develop a bespoke project plan for you, based on the training provided, co-designed with you on the final day. 

This course will also involve some engagement with key individuals within the commissioning organisation to ensure that the training meets their requirements. They can be delivered anywhere in the world or remotely.

Additional consultancy days can be agreed following the training. These can be used to provide reactive support during your project delivery.


Standard rate: £7000

Please note that all in person travel and subsistence rates will be in addition to the training fee above.


"Really understanding the fun and power of photos. It was good to do so much reflecting."

Chapel Hill, North Carolina, July 2022

"I enjoyed being part of the group, learning about how other people's thoughts, experiences through photos. Also the training has really made me think about how we will deliver it to particular groups, or how we would have to adapt."

West Argyll, Scotland, May 2023

"I wasn't 100% sure what to expect, but I was 'curious'. What was delivered was above + beyond. I really enjoyed adding text to photos and how powerful this can make the image - also the facilitator's enthusiasm + wealth of knowledge."

Jersey, September 2023

"It will be very useful, especially for community relationships and organisation, building trust with each other, and the satisfaction of the community."

Hargesia, Somaliland, December 2019
