Who is the Redeye career development programme aimed at? This programme is aimed at all photographers who want to build their knowledge about the business, organisational and development side of their photography. You should get something out of the sessions whatever stage you're at; session 1 is really aimed at those who are about to start trading as photographers, or those who have started in the last couple of years, while session 3 is aimed at those setting up new businesses or collaborative projects.

Do I have to attend all the sessions? No. You can pick and choose which sessions you would like to attend and pay for each one individually or you can purchase a full programme ticket, giving you a considerable discount, enabling you to attend all sessions. Please note that you will need to complete the purchase for each event, before selecting another one.

Who delivers the sessions? The programme is managed and facilitated by Redeye, and we invite some of the leading exponents from each of the fields to share their experience, guidance and lessons learnt. We have some exciting guest speakers lined up which will be announced at

What are the benefits of attending? The programme helps participants to gain the knowledge and understanding to develop all the key skills required to become a successful practicing photographer. If you come to the full programme, by the end you should have a much greater understanding of how the photographic market works, how to build your career and run your business, find work and funding, market yourself, and the best ways to get your work seen.
