Folio Friday (online)

12.00 - 17.00

Group-based Folio Fridays take place once a month on Zoom and each session is open to twelve UK-based photographers. Read more about the two types of Folio Fridays we are currently hosting here.

These sessions include two presentations by photography professionals, an opportunity for participating photographers to make a short presentation about their work to the group and opportunities for networking in the main room. As part of this session, each photographer will receive two, 15-minute one-to-one reviews by the two photography professionals.

Reviewers for this session are: D. Wiafe and Anthony Lam.

This event takes place from 12.00 - 17.00 and photographers are asked to be present for all group presentations and networking, prior to and after receiving their two one-to-one reviews. The rough breakdown for the day is:

11.45 arrivals

12.00 introductions & break out groups

12.15 presentations from two reviewers

12.45 voluntary 3-minute presentations of work from participating photographers

13.00 one-to-one 15-minute reviews begin

16.30 reconvene for final group chat

17.00 close

These sessions are free of charge, on a first come first served basis.
