Redeye is beginning regular Critique Surgeries for photographers looking for informal advice on their work or practice, the first of which takes place on the 30th November 2015 with advice available from Redeye Director, Paul Herrmann and Paulette Terry Brien of International 3. Free for Redeye members, these sessions will be 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 always 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). 

Time, venue and booking
Space is limited, so when you follow the link at the bottom of the page, you will be given a chance to book a specific 30 minute time slot between 5pm and 7pm on the 30th November 2015. These time slots will be based on a first-come-first-served basis. The venue for the first review session is upstairs at Terrace NQ, a bar on Edge Street in the Northern Quarter. The best way to access the room is by going in through the back door of Terrace (on Edge Street, opposite Yard & Coop and Common) and turning immediately right up the stairs. 

If you have accessibility requirements, please get in touch with Charlie via as alternative accesible venues are available. 

We aim to make the Critique Surgeries a regular addition to our events programme, with surgeries every quarter 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.
