Do you have a project you would like some feedback on? Would you like to meet other photographers in the Manchester area?

Our Come and Chat sessions are friendly, relaxed and welcoming spaces to show your work, chat with photographers about their work and business and help you feel reconnected and inspired!


For this event we would like to invite anyone to show some work and share your current practice with other photographers. You can bring along printed imagery, such as images from your portfolio, which can be spread out along tables. Or, if you don’t have anything printed at the moment you can bring along your laptop to show some images on the screen. This event is the perfect place to practise presenting your work, and to meet with other photographers and artists in the region, and get some friendly, supportive feedback.

Or if you don't have anything to show, just come along to look and chat.


It's all very informal along the lines of our previous Stay and Chat events, and as ever you are welcome to come along and participate or sit and listen to the conversation - no need for fears! This is also a great opportunity to reconnect with the photo community and meet other artists working within the region.


Redeye's network meetings are a great chance to meet, discuss and be inspired by other photographers and those working with photography, and the exciting possibilities within photographic practice.




For this come and chat, we will be within Robert Watson's exhibition 'The Sky Above her' which will be up until 5th January 2024 at Manchester Central Library.


Robert Watson is an internationally exhibited, award winning photographer with work in private collections throughout the UK and Europe. His portfolio spans over two decades. Many of Watson’s photographs are shot on film; using his Hasselblad and Leica cameras to produce the documentary and portrait photography for which Watson is held in high regard.

He has published two books, been published in Aesthetica Magazine and his latest exhibition is featured by The BBC in the news and interviews on BBC radio.


Who is it for?

This event is for any photographers, artists or anyone working in a connected field, looking to meet new people, practise talking about their work and gain new professional connections. It's open to photographers and artists at every level, and is highly recommended for experienced and non-experienced networkers alike!

If you're not sure what to bring, please feel free to get in touch for some suggestions.



This event runs from 6pm on 5th December 2023 until 7:30pm. Come along from 5:45pm to set your work out on the tables. Once you sign up you will be given two name badges, one for your work and one for you to wear.
