Graduate Takeover

9 June 2021, 14:00 to 2 July 2021, 19:30

Graduate Takeover is a short season of events, advice and inspiration led by last year’s photography graduates, to help you hit the ground running. It’s free and open to all, especially new graduates and new starters, and co-delivered by RedeyeFuse and Short Supply.

Many people have asked us if there are more affordable alternatives to the "industry standard" imaging and page layout software, Adobe Photoshop and InDesign, since Adobe moved to a subscription model.

This event will be an introduction to Affinity Photo and Affinity Publisher, developed by Serif in Nottingham, England, and priced at a fraction of their Adobe counterparts.

 

Snapshot: Bookbinding

25 November 2020, 19:00 to 19:30

This introductory session will take you through the fundamental skills and tools of bookbinding, before demonstrating a simple pamphlet stitch. The techniques can be adapted to a range of materials to make your own notebooks, zines or photobooks.

This introduction to self publishing will talk through some of the different approaches to making your own edition of photobooks. Starting with the project as the focus, this talk will cover the basics of planning, designing, funding and producing your publication.

Redeye's Snapshots are a series of skill sharing workshops, offering quick introductions to new creative ideas and techniques.

Join us for a 30 minute demonstration from fine-art photographer Scott Hunter, providing insight into exploring this traditional printing technique from your own home without the need for a darkroom. In this introduction to Cyanotype printing, you will gain understanding into mixing chemistry, coating papers, selecting objects, and exposing the prints.

 

Redeye's Rethink Sessions aim to help photographers and artists navigate and adapt to the COVID-19 crisis; to reprioritise, and find new ideas and income during the pandemic and beyond. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed our daily lives. Moving forwards we know how effectively we can collectively adapt and reprioritise; should we and how we can apply this to the climate crisis?

For the next Rethink Session Phil Korbel, social entrepreneur and co-founder of  The Carbon Literacy Project, will join the discussion. We will look at how artists can get more actively involved; make their own arts practice carbon neutral; and use visual communication skills to spread the message. Can we make a positive impact on the planet an integral part of this ‘new normal’?

The Photography Show returns to the NEC for its fifth year, between 17-20 March 2018. This year, Redeye will be hosting advice sessions on Monday 19 March.
