FinditinWorcestershire member, Studio B61 launched in August 2017 and is committed to providing opportunities for people in Worcestershire to break into the creative industries.
In November, they hosted their first free ‘Mix & Mingle’ event for local photographers and creatives. They have a fully-equipped photography studio at their site on Sanders Road, which has been designed to help beginners and amateurs learn the art of studio photography. November’s event was well attended by over 20 Students, amateurs and professional photographers from local photography groups and everyone was keen to help each other learn and experiment.
They now plan to open their doors again on Thursday 22nd March for another free ‘Mix & Mingle’, where they will be providing a model and all the equipment and tuition needed for budding photographers to try their hand at working in a studio. The team behind Studio B61 will also be attending The Photography Show at the NEC over the weekend and are looking forward to sharing what they learn with attendees. Sian Conway and Hannah Dudley, are both photographers themselves so they’re keen to help others develop the skills needed to get into this rewarding career.
“There’s some very talented amateur and professional photographers in Worcestershire, and a growing community online. We’d like to give them a space to meet, collaborate and share their love of photography, as well as learn some new studio skills too” Marketing Director Sian Conway said.
“Hiring models, studio space and equipment to build your portfolio up can get expensive. Hopefully by running events like this we can help people come together to form a creative community in Bromsgrove.”
Studio B61 will host a Creative Mix & Mingle Event on Thursday 22nd March, 4-7pm.
