Accumulate x Metro - Pay it Forward Folio Reviews

POSTED: 04 February 2019

Have your photographic work reviewed by established photographers, influencers and curators from within the industry


Professional photographic lab Metro Imaging has partnered with Accumulate for an interactive event - featuring folio reviews, professional development advice and pro-lab guided tours.

Your creative work will be constructively critiqued by industry professionals and will be included in peer-review groups facilitated by Metro Imaging. Attendees will also have the chance to take part in guided pro-lab tours, where they learn about preparing image files for professional printing as well as learn about different paper profiles and printed portfolio presentation.

Your ticket guarantees you four individual portfolio review sessions with each acclaimed reviewer and the money raised will be paid forward to fund Accumulate participants (people who are young and homeless) to have their creative work reviewed and then showcased at an exhibition at Autograph's Shoreditch gallery in spring 2019.

Accumulate is a charity helping young people affected by homelessness to reach their potential through their participation in creative workshops, education, and activities.

Participants at the Accumulate x Metro Folio Review will also receive a discount code worth 20% off your next self-service transaction at Metro Imaging.

All money raised from tickets goes straight to Accumulate.

YOUR WORK WILL BE REVIEWED BY

Dan Gaba – Photographer, Photo Editor for The @WSJ & @WSJPhotos in London/EMEA, formerly with The @NYT. Support you with editing your work.

"Artists whether established or emerging are always looking for impartial peer feedback on their projects - it helps to ascertain direction, gauge responses and seek ways in which to improve or see their works. Portfolio reviews are just one of the ways to help to do this.

I would suggest to anyone coming along - do some research into us as reviewers, prepare some questions you might have about your work and think about the way in which we might be able to help you. I am delighted to be supporting Accumulate through this initiative with Metro Imaging."

- Bindi Vora, Curatorial Project Manager at Autograph
