Graduate Takeover is a short season of events, advice and inspiration led by last year’s photography graduates, to help you hit the ground running. It’s free and open to all, especially new graduates and new starters, and co-delivered by RedeyeFuse and Short Supply.


Our Careers Clinics are open spaces for discussion, each week looking at a different element of running a profitable creative practice. On Wednesday the 23rd June Redeye’s Rosie Dale and Paul Herrmann will lead the conversation on business models, and how you can set up a successful photography business despite the pandemic.


In her role as a Research Assistant for Redeye Rosie has been producing a series of case studies about the business models of photographers, and how they have adapted them to survive the financial impact of the pandemic.


In this session Paul and Rosie talk through how to plan your business model, and use it strategically to monetise your practice and build your career. They explain which areas of work offer the most scope for new businesses, and which traditional skills are still highly relevant.


The second half of the session will be dedicated to discussion and a Q&A, so please bring your questions!


Rosie Dale is an emerging artist based in south west England. Her work is created through an intuitive process, often focusing on themes related to philosophy, ethics and her own personal relationships.

She graduated from the University of West England in 2020, and has been working for Redeye, the Photography Network since January.


Paul Herrmann is an organiser and leader in photography. He is director of Redeye and of The Photographic Collections Network, an equivalent to Redeye for photography specialists, archivists, scholars and historians. He has started and steered a range of projects, and brought people together, in photography and the arts. 

He talks, writes and advises on a range of business and professional issues in photography.
