Fourth Year

18 October 2017, 17:00 to 21 March 2018, 19:00

Fourth Year is a series of informal networking sessions for recent graduates from photography courses to gain support for their practice.

Commissioning for Change Lab with LOOK/17

In partnership with LOOK/17 Festival, Redeye presents a daylong event on improving the commissioning process and building better relationships between commissioners and photographers.  

The final career development workshop takes you on a journey through the countless ways you can get work published in print and digitally. Which ways are worth pursuing?

This event will be an opportunity to hear more about Lightbox Online and ask any questions about the course and how to get involved.  Redeye’s director Paul Herrmann and Programme Coordinator Rachael Burns will be on hand to talk through the aims of the course and work out if it is the right fit for you.

Lightbox Online is a six-month programme of talks, workshops and group critiques fostering a community of practice that will allow you to grow. There will be a focus on the skills required to sustain a career, from developing and managing standout projects, via marketing, fundraising and evaluation to collaborative working and ethical practice.

Student and graduation panel session: Where now?

Paul Herrmann and a group of mentors from across the image-making industry will come together to give quick-fire advice to those who have just graduated (or who are still studying) and are wondering what options there are to progress their careers in light of the recent global upheaval. The panellists will invite their audience to think creatively and adapt their mindset to a working environment that while challenging, could also offer some very different opportunities.

Get informal advice on your projects and career during 1-1s with specialists in photography. Our regular Critique Surgeries are a supportive and welcoming space to share your work and get feedback and inspiration for continuting to improve your photographic work.

This series, as with all our events, will be conducted online for the foreseeable future on one-to-one Zoom meetings.

Getting Your Ducks in a Row

15 September 2020, 18:00 to 19:15

Getting the business side of your practice organised is one of those tasks that always seems to slip down the to-do list. But not doing so, and not following up when your work gets misused, can be costly. Has your work ever been reproduced without your permission? Or has a client ever made more of your work than was agreed? And why when challenged do so many people say 'But it's only a photo'? This event will give you the skills and knowledge to understand when and how to push back and demand fair payment for your images. 

Our Open Space events are discussions on a particular subject. Open to all, and we particularly welcome anyone with experience or knowledge of the subject covered.

Open Space: What’s Next for Photography Graduates will allow graduating students to discuss their concerns and hear about some of the help available to graduates at this challenging time.
