Gwen Thomas has worked behind the scenes for nearly 40 years on behalf of photographers, ending up as the Legal & Business Director of the Association of Photographers, with an unparalleled knowledge of the law and business as it affects professionals. At the end of September 2015 she retires. We’re delighted to publish this short interview with Redeye’s Paul Herrmann to mark her unique contribution to photography.
On Monday 14th September, the third Redeye Lightbox course started at CFCCA in Manchester. After receiving a record number of applications, we are pleased to announce the 25 participants taking part, selected by our expert juding panel (Andy Adams, Gemma Padley and Karin Bareman). The course continues throughout 2016 and will culminate with three group shows at a major UK photography festival in autumn 2016.
