What you will do

2 hour class

Daytime

If you are about to apply to an undergraduate course, a foundation course or you’ve got a specific interest in photography and filmmaking then I think this one-on-one class could be perfect for you.

  • The class will take place in my studio within the heart of Shoreditch.
  • Over the two hours I will do a thorough check of the pupils portfolio and edit down the content to 10-15 pages.
  • I will also carefully look over any moving image work and do a thorough re-edit where necessary.
  • I will provide an insight into some of the legalities of the industry.
  • I will make recommendations to the student about photographers and filmmakers to research as a bit of context within their practice.
  • I will show each student the different types of cameras that I own and use for different parts of my practice.
  • There will be a little trip down the road to my lab, Rapid Eye Darkrooms, where I print my work and get all my negatives processed. This is so that students can see where all the magic of analogue processes happen. Rapid Eye is where all the top fashion and documentary photographers print their work in darkrooms. It’s also 20% off for students.
  • The student will also have access to my large collection of photography books to view on site.

A little bit about me…

Having assisted Jamie Hawkesworth, Camille Summers-Valli, Nick Knight and Thurstan Redding as well as building up a substantial quota of established clients, I have had a fundamental amount of experience in the film and photography industry.

My practice has included portraits for i-D Magazine, editorial shots with the CSM graduate designer Rahemur Rahman and commercial shots for L’Óreal. Alongside this I have been developing a documentary around the queer South Asian community in East London. My skills stretch over analogue and digital photography, filmmaking and art direction within fashion, documentary, art, music and beauty.

In 2012 - 2013 I studied Fine Arts on the Kingston university Foundation Course. I then took a year out where I worked for Mario Testino, Michael Hoppen, Blink Productions and Pulse Films. I decided to pursue a degree in Graphic Design and so I built up my portfolio, landing myself places on the leading Graphic Design courses at Chelsea College of Arts, Camberwell and Wimbledon, settling for Chelsea. Within the three years I trained in Graphic Design with a focus on film and photography. At the same time I freelanced by assisting on set and creating visuals for the music industry. When I graduated I assisted some of the top photographers in the industry, worked at Rapid Eye Darkrooms and developed my own practice on top of this.

I have had a fair bit of experience working with young creatives developing their portfolio including conducting C.V checks at Kingston university for the media and communications undergrads. I have acted as a supporting interviewer for the Kingston foundation course. As well as conducting a couple of lectures at St Francis Holland School to the 6th formers about my career.

Lily was very welcoming into her creative studio where she held the class. It was a very relaxed environment, but we managed to get through a lot in the amount of time. She handled criticism constructively and with sensitivity. By the end I felt very equipped with a brand new set of skills to tackle my commercial and artistic work. Being a budding film director myself, Lily also spent some time sharing her experiences and mistakes which gave me a great understanding of the film and photography industry. I would definitely recommend this class if you want to learn some skills from someone who seems to have had a lot of experience in the industry.

Photography and Film Portfolio Review by Lily Vetch Studio - photography in London

About your host, Lily Vetch Studio

Lily spent three years practising Graphic Design Communication BA at Chelsea College of Arts. Since graduating she has started her own studio with a focus on film and photography. After uni Lily spent a couple of years assisting photographers in and out of the office such as Jamie Hawkesworth. Alongside this she worked at a photographic printing lab where she learnt all about analogue photography. Lily works in a mixture of digital and analogue processes. Many hours are spent refining her photographic prints by experimenting in the darkroom. She has been editing films since the age of 16 and so is often hired by high end clients because of her skills in making low budget films look professional. Lily studied the work of Terence Malick, Paolo Sorrentino and Steve McQueen in the way they have used wide angle lenses to create a sense of 'epicness'. She's really keen to teach the vast amount of skills that she's acquired in filmmaking and photography to a class of students who also have a keen interest in these exciting mediums. Lily continues to support a handful of young creatives and it gives her great joy to see them blossom. Lily's set up is in her studio/home which is in the heart of Shoreditch, walking distance from Liverpool Street and Old Street. There are many places to eat, drink and explore in the area.

Previous clientele has included i-D Magazine, Hero Magazine, Astley Clarke, L'óreal, Red Light Management, Arkitaip, Secret Spa x Kiehl’s, the RAF and LAB Records.
