Who is it for?
The Critique Surgeries are designed to be informal sessions 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 to show your work. You might want advice on improving your work or to discuss career moves. 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. Find out more information on our FAQs page.
