Come and see us at Photo North!
“Photo North Festival, run by Sharon Price, Peter Dench and friends, is back for its third year, at Bonded Warehouse, Manchester, 7,8,9 May. Building on the success of previous years, this unique photography event is aimed at the professional photographer, art-enthusiast, keen amateur and students. The festival brings together a sensational display of exhibitions, talks, walks, workshops and portfolio reviews from highly respected and emerging artists.
The Photo North small team create a lively festival where everyone feels welcome and engaged and leaves feeling nourished and inspired. There’s lots to enjoy with a programme of music, food and a licensed bar.

We will be delivering free portfolio reviews and surgeries throughout the day. We invite you to bring along some work to get some friendly feedback from ourselves, and photographic peers. As well as that we are hosting a very informal drop-in round table chat, where we ask, "Working in photography in Manchester - how is it, what’s missing or needed, what would help your career, how can we work together?".
