Redeye’s Hothouse photography event took place on Saturday 10th of March. Photographers gave presentations of their work, there were portfolios, books and other stuff on display.
People met, networked and generally immersed themselves in photography for the day. There was delicious coffee and tea on tap (for a small flat fee). The venue was The Studio, on Lever St, very modern and well equipped. Best of all it was free and open to anyone to attend.
I think I’m right in saying that everyone who attended Hothouse enjoyed it and benefited in some way. Here’s how I benefited.
- By listening to photographers, I learned new things and was inspired.
- I learned about the best way to prepare a photographic portfolio, and what to do with it.
- I met some new people, including one or two very talented photographers and a keen blogger.
- I met up again with people I know including some well known photographers!
- I saw some great photography in the portfolios on display.
- I drank a lot of very nice coffee, and some wine at the end, and was offered a piece of birthday cake by one of the UK’s leading photographic publishers!

I wasn’t there all day as I had one of my photographic walking tours in the afternoon, but I brought my students into Hothouse for the final hour.
Congratulations to Paul Herrmann and all at Redeye for another excellent event, which really brought people together. I highly recommend Redeye, they are doing a great job. See www.redeye.org.uk.
