On 1st February 2018 Locate helped organise the fourteenth Photographers’ Dining Club, held at Autumn Yard in east London.
The evening includes great food and drink as well as talks from established and emerging photographers, art buyers, and creative directors on topics relevant to image makers today.
Locate sourced the event location Autumn Yard from it’s extensive location library, knowing that its relaxed, urban aesthetic and location in the creative heart of east London would create the perfect atmosphere for the evening. Its commitment to simple but delicious food was also high on our list of priorities!
The theme of the event was ‘Getting Commissioned: Unconventional Ways’, with three inspiring speakers providing insight into their own unique methods of getting work noticed.
Speakers at the event were Tif Hunter, a photographer with over 20 years’ experience and a specialism in creating tintypes*; Kathy Howes, Senior Creative Producer/Art Buyer at Proximity London; and Philippa Stanton, an artist and photographer who loves to capture everyday objects, in simple compositions.
Topics discussed by speakers and guests included:
- how to embrace Instagram and other online platforms
- projects that stand out from the noise
- what brands and agencies are looking for from image makers now
- why analogue is not dead
With a 50-person guest list, the intimate evening gave guests the chance to discuss relevant and meaningful issues with like-minded creatives, and go away with renewed inspiration for their creative projects in 2018.
We love being a part of the Photographers’ Dining Club, and look forward to the next event, due to take place in Spring.
