Workflow with Phil Melia

Tuesday, 22nd February 7pm - 8:30pm




This event welcomes Phil Melia to explain what workflow is, indentify the elements of a good workflow and helps you establish an effective workflow. This event is aimed at those who have images scattered randomly on their computer, in the cloud and on external drives, who sometimes find it hard to find photographs they have recently created or historically created, who want to organise their photographs and who want to look at effective storage of their photographs. So if that is you, then come along to this event where Phil walks you through successful organization with the introduction to Digital Asset Management (DAM). 


“Planning, being organised and having an efficient workflow are all essential parts of delivering photography in a professional capacity. It is also equally important for personal projects in both analogue or digital environments as precious images that have been hard worked for can be damaged or lost forever. It’s also important from an archival perspective, especially in documentary where the work can become culturally significant and important with the passage of time.” - Phil Melia




Phil Melia is a freelance professional photographer with a background in commercial, industrial and documentary genres. He started his career in 1983 where he studied HND Photography at Salisbury College of Art followed by staff photography jobs in Surrey, Cambridge and Manchester before going freelance in 1991.


Over the past thirty-five years, Phil’s worked on a diverse range of assignments for an eclectic mix of clients across the UK and worldwide. He has worked in studio and location environments, using analogue and digital workflows with a mixture of cameras and lighting covering both still and moving image content.
