ITP+ Course, Photography & Documentation: Report and Handy Guide

In December 2017, 10 ITP fellows attended the second ITP+ course, Photography and documentation, held at the British Museum.


ITP+ courses are five-day workshops on selected themes that focus on particular themes, responding to our alumni’s stated interests and development needs and helping to address identified challenges within their home institutions.

Read the report below for more about the Photography and documentation ITP+, including the programme schedule, quotes from fellows and facilitators, photos and evaluation outcomes.

Please also find below a link to a course ‘handy guide’. The handy guide summarises the lessons learnt and shares the hints & tips delivered throughout the sessions. The guide covers many aspects of photography and documentation, including: documentation policies; collections management systems; creating object entries; looking after your camera; aperture, shutter speed and ISO; a glossary of terms; and more. We hope you find it useful!
