Welcoming Our New Emeritus Members & Mentor Program Photographers

We are very excited and proud to announce new members into VII.

New Emeritus Members

It is a great honor to welcome Philip Blenkinsop and Seamus Murphy to our Emeritus Membership. They are both long-standing collaborators and friends. Philip and Seamus are sensitive and empathetic storytellers with a rich and cultured history in photography. They add a great deal of experience, accomplishment, and wisdom to the agency and will help strengthen our storytelling, our education programming, and our legacy. 

New Mentor Program Photographers

We are also thrilled to welcome nine new mentees from diverse backgrounds and traditions into our Mentor Program. The VII Mentor Program is an important commitment from our photographers to transfer knowledge and experience to a new generation. It is the first of its kind and has inspired many imitations, which is a testament to the strength of the men and women who have passed through it, many of whom have gone on to great prominence in our industry. We look forward to working with this new group and seeing them evolve over the next two years.
