On Wednesday 25th March 2020 you can book a Skype appointment with Ger Tierney,  Photographic Director at Rapha and Founder of The Court – a magazine dedicated to women in sport through the lens of stunning photography which is launching in 2020. 

Ger (short for Geraldine) comes from an editorial background working at i-D for many years where she developed a real interest in seeking out emerging talent in photography and styling and creating a platform for them. Then moving on to British GQ as Photo Director working across GQ and GQ style on covers, features and fashion stories. Ger’s other passion in life is sports and in particular cycling and so she jumped at the chance to work at Rapha the prestigious cycling apparel brand. This year she has developed a magazine dedicated to women in sport that seeks to respond to the challenges, stereotypes and misconceptions that face female athletes through stunning photography and bold writing.


You can ask Ger anything about commissioning photography, how she finds new photographers to work with, how to pitch your projects and ideas to editors and directors, and anything else.
