This summer, i-D is giving you access to our collaborators; the stylists and photographers, designers and directors who create our world. How? With courses inspired by the ‘Learn and Pass it on’ ethos on which the magazine was built.

i-D’s Summer School teams up with leading industry names for a series of video workshops and how-to guides, so you can continue to create, learn and network from home. It sees mentors issue a brief to anyone who applies , from which we make a selection to be critiqued and developed -- essentially, the chance to get or work seen by industry professionals. Plus, it’s free on Youtube.

First up, our own Editor-in-Chief Alastair McKimm, who gets interviewed by i-D’s Contributing Editor on how to pitch your story to a magazine (hopefully i-D). “Not only must we keep our community of creatives close, connecting and sharing and inspiring each other, but also to give them access to our platforms that everyone can share the vast audience that we’re so lucky to have,” says Alastair. “I’d love to take this opportunity to really harness our creativity.”

In addition to Al’s class, his industry friends and collaborators have made their own videos -- from Mario Sorrenti talking about how he got his start as a photographer, to stylist Julia Sarr Jamois’ views on being kind to people.
