We are here to make a difference
AfroShoot is a platform with the mission to foster the conversations between Africa & its diaspora to reach out to the world and share unseen narratives to the mainstream while supporting photographers and nurturing a new synergy.
We want to make a change
AfroShoot is thriving at supporting artists on the path of recognition, engaging the dialogues around photography and deconstructing false representations of Africa. We will commit to share our multitude of narratives through seminars, exhibitions, talks, also engaging with you for trainings and workshops.
Our mission is to foster conversations between sub-Saharan and North Africa, between the continent and its diaspora and promote them to a very diverse mainstream while giving full support to photographers on the path of recognition.
African photographers are under-represented. Medias are western-centred and promote false clichés of Africa. We want to change it and create conversations around the discipline of photography as a profession as well as an art practice.
AfroShoot is a platform based in London (United Kingdom) developing its presence and integrating projects worldwide. Our network includes photographers from Africa and its diaspora as well as professionals within the field of photography from all over the world.

As photographers from a huge continent the diversity of our narratives is immense. Africa makes us live within our experiences. Why isn’t it more exposed to the mainstream ?
Working in togetherness is of high value, we are seeking concrete collaborations as humans & organisations because it is where lies the strength of serving a purpose.
The London African P. Festival is the major & biggest project AfroShoot will be building upon through the time. We see it happening in 5 years time.

Defining the place AfroShoot can held in the UK is an important step that we will build over time, with you. We want to have a real impact and build relationships with you.
Zoom on Africa
Many of us are residing in Africa, we are thus dedicated to find missions to work with local organisations on the access to photography as a profession or artistic practice.
We have a network of photographers from Africa & its diaspora around the world. From amateur photographers to professional or artistic photographers, we invite you to join our network for more exposure, more opportunities to be part of our events such as exhibitions or seminars. Additionally, we are currently curating & designing programmes of trainings and workshops for your own needs and interest.
You don't want to miss on that, do you? Get in touch now at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest of being part of the network.
