Mentorship in Documentary Photography

Fseven invites applications for a 3 month program in documentary photography. This is a hands on – on the job instruction module that will require the mentee to work on a live documentary project. By the end of the mentorship period, the mentee would be able to conceptualize a project, research and bring together resources for the same and bring out photographs in suitable formats – exhibitions, books, et al. The mentorship period will follow a schedule of topics and activities/ interactions which would be additional to the project shooting.


Each mentee would be assigned a mentor (current Fseven Member) who would be the point of reference for the mentorship period. However, during the mentorship period the mentee/s will interact with all Fseven members as and where required. To facilitate detailed and personalized attention, at any time, each mentor has only two mentees associated with him/ her.


No of open positons – Eight only. Selection of a mentor will be largely subjective and basis a series of interactions with members of the Fseven Photographers collective. Invited students would be required to showcase their existing portfolios as part of their applications for the program.

Rs 20,000/- for the entire program. The fee is payable in installments. Information on payment modes and timelines will be provided at an advanced stage of discussions.
