The third session in Redeye's newest programme of Critique Surgeries, aimed at photographers looking for informal advice on their work or practice.
We are delighted to announce guest panelists Intern Magazine's Photography Editor Hollie Myles and Document Scotland Photographer Colin McPherson. Currently free for Redeye members, these sessions are programmed quarterly to provide regular informal support to photographers from Redeye and experts in the field.
Who is it for?
The critique surgeries are designed to be informal arenas for photographers who are looking for feedback and advice. Maybe you are struggling for inspiration, have hit a dead end with your latest project or you simply want advice on where, or who, to show your work to. These sessions are designed as a friendly alternative to portfolio reviews, and can be used to prepare your portfolio for an upcoming review or competition. Redeye welcomes photographers at all levels and at all career stages.
How much is it?
The Critique Surgeries are programmed quarterly and are currently free for Redeye members. To find out more about becoming a member go to our membership page. Price for non-members is £20 (the equivalent to five months membership if you decide to join instead).
Space is limited so please book on to a specific time slot. If you are unable to attend your appointment please let Charlie Booth know in advance at Charlie@redeye.org.uk as soon as possible. The Critique Surgeries are a regular addition to our events programme, with surgeries every few months and in different locations across the Country. If you would like Redeye to host a Critique Surgery in your City please get in touch with Charlie at the above email address.
