Studio 1854 works with photographers to create narrative-led projects that explore the world we live in.
By focusing on themes that are culturally and socially relevant, our commissions offer paid opportunities for photographers to collaborate with clients on projects that matter.
Our bespoke commissioning platform – 1854 Commissions – matches contemporary photographic talent with clients to achieve the best possible results. We share client briefs with our global community and select the optimum candidate based on a range of factors including style, creative approach and past work.
“To be given all this creative freedom and told, ‘make what you want, here’s loads of time and a good amount of money’ – that doesn’t happen very often.”
Catherine Hyland, 1854 commissioned photographer
“Working on a brand commission with 1854 has really opened my eyes to the potential. Using the power of real photography to cut through the noise and create meaningful conversations between brands and their communities. The photographer wins. The band wins. The audience wins. It’s a massive opportunity!”
Laura Pannack, 1854 commissioned photographer
