A full day symposium focusing on how photographers and artists engage with communities and establish networks that help them to forge successful careers. This event is in partnership with the University of Salford School of Arts and Media.

How do you make a living from the work you really want to do? As part of our work to support contemporary creative and fine art photographers to deliver personal or self-generated projects as part of their broader careers, we are delighted to offer two short sessions at Beyond the Lens Festival 2017. 

Join Rob Hornstra on 28 February 2018 for a one-day intensive workshop for photographers, designers and storytellers who want to learn how to construct and present long-term photography projects.

In partnership with Castlefield Gallery and Manchester Craft & Design Centre, we present a day of talks, discussions and workshops encouraging photographers, artists and makers to draw inspiration for their personal practice from other paid and commercial work.

Successful Contemporary Photography

A series of short talks at The Photography Show in Birmingham that look to the future of photography and the steps professionals are taking to combine meaningful work with continued success. 

A full day workshop empowering photographers and artists to fundraise effectively and create a financial strategy for their practice.

Unfortunately we have had to postpone Rethinking your business model. We apologise for any inconvenience caused but we are hoping to reschedule with a new date for this workshop in Spring/Summer 2017.

The second 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 Open Eye Gallery Exhibitions Coordinator Thomas Dukes and Salford Art Curator Lindsay Taylor, in addition to Redeye's Paul Herrmann. Currently free for Redeye members, these sessions are programmed quarterly to provide regular informal support to photographers from Redeye and experts in the field. 

Many of you will know that Redeye recently converted to becoming a Community Benefit Society (or Bencom). This is our first members' general meeting as a Bencom. It takes place from 17:30 to 19:00 on 20 July 2015 at Redeye. All Redeye members are welcome. Members can pre-register here or just turn up on the night. Make sure your membership is up to date on the day.
