About us

Fotofonty was founded by photographer Betsy Doak and graphic designer Maja Jones. Together, we aim to provide fun and educational photography and typo/graphic based workshops in and around Eastbourne.

Our ethos is to create workshops that reflect the environment of current affairs for children, making them aware that they have a voice, this could be of political , environmental, emotional (in the face of current events workshops with ‘positive’ values) or cultural inspiration and reference. The workshops as our name suggests are conducted using photography and graphic ideas primarily with typography.

We have experience of working with schools, art galleries (such as the Towner, National Portrait Gallery, Photographers Gallery and the Jerwood) and with local communities.

Do get in touch if you would like us to do a workshop at an event, gallery or community centre near you!
