At Hundred Heroines, we understand the need for community. Providing a space where like-minded individuals can learn, discuss, create and progress their careers during such isolated times has never seemed more important to us. Enter: Bootcamp!

Bootcamp is a two week online programme that offers an invaluable opportunity for participants to contribute to raising the profile of women in photography, develop new skills and the chance to be creative.

Bootcampers work on employable skills such as researching, writing and nailing the perfect CV. Alongside this, there’s the opportunity to express yourself creatively and connect with others.

So why take part?

As well as beefing up your CV and learning new transferable skills, Bootcamp offers the opportunity to connect to other creatives and photography fans by fostering relationships.

It also encourages you to kick-start and explore your more creative side!

Bootcamp is open to all, regardless of experience or knowledge. Whether you’re a dab hand at photography or have recently changed careers, Bootcamp is perfect for you. We acknowledge everyone’s skill set ahead of time to ensure that you are supported during Bootcamp!

Oh and did we mention: Bootcamp is FREE to join!

Many of our past Bootcampers have now graduated to volunteers and regularly produce written work for our site and join our volunteer meet-ups!

These last few days have been important as it enabled me to critically analyse pieces, learn about incredible women in photography and film, and interact with other intelligent women.
