BPARG Talk: David Birkitt – ‘The beauty about photography is…’

27th June 2013

BIAD, Margaret Street, Birmingham

From 6.30pm

After studying photography to degree level and assisting on shoots, David Birkitt decided to put down his camera and embark on a career as an agent for other photographers, a job he never even knew existed when he was at university. He now heads up DMB Media (www.dmbcreatives.com), bringing like-minded people together for ad hoc projects and long-term ventures, and working with established and emerging practitioners, including the likes of Martin Parr, WassinkLundgren, Simon Roberts and Finn Taylor.

David will talk about how he has been able to carve out a
career around photography, using his background studying and working as an assistant to understand photographers’ ways
of thinking, and facilitating communication between them and their clients in a language they can both understand. As he commented in a recent interview, it may take time to become established, ‘but the beauty about photography is; if you make it work for you, you never have to retire.’
