London Photo Festival - Street Photography
STREET photography is photography that features the human condition within public places and does not need a street or the urban environment.
The founders of the London Photo Festival have announced the theme – Street Photography – for the 6th biannual London Photo Festival which takes place from May 22 to May 24, 2014; photographers are invited to submit their work now.
Emma Mapp and Kit Shah, Co-founders of the London Photo Festival, said:
“We created the London Photo Festival in 2011 to showcase up and coming talent and to provide new and emerging photographers with an opportunity to exhibit their work, have it professionally appraised and sell their work to the public. We will be holding our 6th Festival in May and we hope to continue to grow and promote photographers from around the globe.”
October 2013’s Judge, Zoe Whishaw, commercial photographer, editor and art director, formerly of Getty Images, will be hosting a Master Class on From Emerging to Professional Photographer: Considerations and Practice and tickets can be obtained directly from the Festival’s website (www.londonphotofestival.org/. Early booking is advisable.
The Judge for May 2014’s Festival will be announced in due course.
The London Photo Festival continues to help, support and launch the careers of photographers, as Nico Goodden explains:
“As a first opportunity to showcase my work it taught me how to choose the right piece to exhibit, how to choose a printing company as there are so many out there and how to price your work. Seeing the reactions of people to your work is also great, or sometimes the lack of reaction, either way it tells you a lot. You can’t learn this when showing your work online. Whatever the outcome, it’s a lesson.”
