Description
Flashpoint Labs is a socially innovative professional photography agency and training academy. We provide corporate photography services and run changemaking photography programs with young people from diverse backgrounds.

The Agency

We deliver brilliant imagery with exceptional customer service and social impact. We provide a full range of corporate, event and advertising photography services. On every job, where possible, a young apprentice from a diverse background, particularly Indigenous or recently migrated, works alongside a professional photographer getting valuable on-the-job industry experience. All profits from our photography services go directly into supporting our apprenticeships and changemaking photography programs.

The Academy

We deliver a range of changemaking photography programs, workshops, coaching and events for people of all ages and skill levels. We focus on engaging and empowering young people from diverse backgrounds with the intention of employing the most committed as apprentices in the Agency. Changemaking photography is melding social innovation and photography, it’s trying to improve society through conscious image making and powerful storytelling.

Our programs use photography to engage people of all ages and skill levels in breakthrough learning experiences. In supportive and cohesive groups, participants are given the opportunity to learn about technical photography, strategic storytelling and social innovation while developing critical and systems thinking skills, creative expression and confidence. Our programs are informed by the latest research in empowerment and changemaking through digital media and by our own unique experiences and innovative approach.

Our mission is to empower young people from diverse backgrounds to be creative professionals and changemakers by delivering breakthrough learning experiences and providing on-going coaching, support, and connection to industry.

We are self-funding, we generate revenue through the agency to run the academy.
