Graphic with an image of photographs displayed on a blue wall, between two grey panels with text reading: 'Professional Development Series, TALK: PROTECTING YOUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, Nicholas Chard, Intellectual Property Office, 24 march 2021, 11am (UK), Free to attend, open to all', and to the right 'Shutter Hub Professional Development Series'

Professional development is essential to us at Shutter Hub and we want to enable our members to learn from experts in their field. Following the hugely successful Professional Development Day at Bermondsey Project Space in 2019 we are now delivering an accessible Professional Development Series online we’d like to you to join us!


The sessions are for all photographers who want to take their profession further and learn in a friendly environment, whatever level you are currently at. We want you to come away having learnt something that will benefit you in your career, help you feel inspired and empowered.

Each session is one hour long and we’ll vary the days and times they are held to allow people with different schedules more chance to attend. There is one speaker per session and the sessions aren’t recorded so you will have to attend in order to hear the talk and ask questions – we want this to be as similar as possible to attending one of our actual events, the most benefit is gained from being present, and we feel this leads to more open and honest discussion. The sessions are free but donations are welcome.


On 24 March 2021 we are pleased to welcome Nicholas Chard from the Intellectual Property Office.
