The Social: Photography Tips & Advice

TPG was founded as a home for photographers; a way of providing an essential exhibition and meeting space for the photographic community both in the UK and beyond. From its earliest days the gallery has welcomed and encouraged photographers at every stage of their development, with a programme of practical courses and workshops, a specialist bookshop and a variety of formal and informal events to extend knowledge and skills, and to grow networks.

One of our regular – and most longstanding – advice and networking events is The Social. Every other month practising photographers and industry experts share tips and offer ideas around a theme, in an open and informal forum. A selection of take-away tips are collated here. This will be updated, so keep visiting to collect more.
