Family Photography Blog
Welcome to the family photography blog from This is Reportage: Family! This is the area of the site where we'll be bringing you all our latest features; a veritable treasure-trove of documentary family photography goodness! Check back regularly for new features.
An honour to reveal our judges for Collection Six! Thanks so much to these wonderful photographers for giving up their time and expertise in judging for us: (Clockwise, from top-left) Marisa Martins (Portugal), Siliang Wang (United States), Dominique Shaw of York Place Studios (UK), Gareth McGaughey (Ireland) and Elke Van Rulo (Belgium).
There’s just a few days left now to submit: Deadline is 23:59 BST on 24th May 2021. Members receive 60 Reportage Family Award (for the best individual captures) and 18 Family Story Award submissions (for a series of 15 – 20 images of a single family) per year, all included in your membership fee.
The exclusive re-watch of our very first Live Photo Critique is now up in our members’ area! This is the *only* place to watch if you missed it live (we remove our live videos from Facebook an hour or so after the live session has ended – only TiR:F members are able to re-watch the video at their leisure).
This was *such* an interesting and fun session, with the fab Julia Rose-Greim and Nienke Koedijk sharing *so many* brilliant insights and advice in this almost-two hour session; so good – thanks so much to them both!
Join us for our very first Facebook Live! On Tuesday May 4th 2021 (7pm BST / 8pm CEST / 2pm EDT), the fab Nienke Koedijk, Julia Rose-Greim, and myself (Alan Law, TiR:F Founder) will be doing a live critique of some of our members’ documentary family captures.
The Live will be over on our Facebook page, and viewable for everyone; not just members (but only TiR:F members are able to submit images to be critiqued, and, after the Live, the video will only be available to re-watch for members, too.)
Hope to see you there!
We’ve teamed up with This Detailed Life to give one lucky TiR:F winner an amazing prize of ALL 3 editions of the magazine to date – QUARANTINE, CELEBRATE and COLOUR (see details below)!
We’re honoured to have one of our recent judges (for Collection Five) – the fab Sara Paolucci – write this piece for us today, where she explores her thoughts on judging, and tips for becoming an award-winning photographer. She also shares some of her personal favourite awards from the Collection. That’s Sara above, along with her own Reportage Family Awards, won in previous Collections.
