The Photography Show returns to the NEC for its fifth year, between 17-20 March 2018. This year, Redeye will be hosting advice sessions on Monday 19 March.

How do you make a living from the work you really want to do? As part of our work to support contemporary creative and fine art photographers to deliver personal or self-generated projects as part of their broader careers, we are delighted to offer two short sessions at Beyond the Lens Festival 2017. 

In partnership with Castlefield Gallery and Manchester Craft & Design Centre, we present a day of talks, discussions and workshops encouraging photographers, artists and makers to draw inspiration for their personal practice from other paid and commercial work.

Manchester's mayor has committed to end unintentional homelessness and rough sleeping. Join us for an event exploring the role photography, media and the arts, can play in helping achieve this goal.
