How to show ageing from a new perspective
January 26 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
In this webinar, you’ll hear from experts on imagery and on anti-ageism discussing what it takes for a photo to accurately capture the diversity of old age. This webinar is aimed at photographers of all abilities, as well as those who regularly download and use imagery in their profession or communications.
Find out what the common pitfalls are when it comes to photographing and tagging images of people aged 50+, and learn how you can avoid them.
You’ll hear from Ageing Better about why it created the Age-positive image library and how photos commonly perpetuate ageist stereotypes, causing serious harm. The content licensing platform Alamy will share its insights into inclusive captions for photos and the secrets behind photos that catch your eye on their platform.
This short and interactive webinar is hosted by Ageing Better and Alamy who have joined forces to run a photography competition challenging old-age stereotypes. The competition is open to everyone and is an opportunity to produce inclusive imagery that avoids the stereotyping and objectifying of older people. The competition runs until 31 March – enter now.
