AMPS: Photofusion Salon 2012
Launch Party
Thursday 6th December
18:30 – 21:00 | Free bar until 19:00 | Open to all
Now in its fourth year, our Annual Members’ Photography Show has undergone a complete makeover. Due to the growing popularity of this event, AMPS is adopting a new salon-style hang, allowing a much larger number of Members to showcase one of their images.
The images exhibited reflect the diversity of work being made by our Members, encompassing all genres from the traditional to the avant garde. Examples of social documentary and classic portraiture can be seen alongside contemporary constructed imagery, still life, and digitally manipulated photography.

This year, 118 photographers have been selected to exhibit on the walls, along with a further 43 presented on a showreel. Many are Members who have been with Photofusion from its inception and have longstanding careers as professional photographers, while others are recent Members and newly emerging in their careers.
Photofusion Salon 2012 sees the continued collaboration with HotShoe Magazine. Deputy and Online Editor Miranda Gavin will open the show by presenting this year’s “HotShoe Photofusion Award”. The public will also be able to choose their favourite entry as part of the “AMPS/12 Public Choice Award”, which will be selected at the end of the exhibition.
Following on from this exhibition, a select few will be chosen to develop their work and exhibit as part of a smaller group show, Photofusion Select, in 2013.

Do you need to set goals for your photography or lens-based personal project for the new year? Are you feeling stuck creatively? Does it help if you are working towards a concrete goal, such as a potential exhibition? Do you need to get your work back on track? Would you benefit from feedback to help move your project forward?
Tri-pod is a creative initiative set up in 2010 by deputy editor of Hotshoe magazine and educator Miranda Gavin and photographer and lecturer Wendy Pye.
Tri-pod takes a holistic approach to building a dynamic and flexible model for working with photographers, supporting participants in the development of their work using a variety of different strategies. The workshops engage the support of peers and are for photographers and visual artists using photography who have a lens-based Project in Progress.
We are looking to hold two, one and a half-day new year workshops in the last two weeks of January 2013 for people who have Projects in Progress and would benefit from the support that Tri-pod offers.
The 1.5 days will be an afternoon/evening session of three hours followed by an all-day feedback session with Miranda Gavin and two other industry professionals. Previous industry facilitators have included Laura Noble, Diane Smyth and Sue Steward. The workshop will be held in London and/or in Brighton. The cost is £120 per person, maximum 9 participants per workshop.
If you are interested in applying, please email before Monday 26 November, saying “Yes, I’m interested in London (or Brighton) workshops”
Tri-pod is also developing an extended network for its various workshop participants and will be offering informal evening and half-day follow-up sessions for ongoing support in 2013.
In collaboration with Photofusion, Tri-pod will also be offering participants a two-person exhibition to be held in the summer of 2013 at Photofusion’s gallery in Brixton, London. The photographers will be selected from all those who have attended Tri-pod workshops.

Official invitation to my exhibition at Brighton Photo Fringe

I am feeling more positive toady, so sorry about my last, bleak post, “Art makes fools of us all”

Those wondeful people following my blog are welcome to come to the private view (if they can make it to Brighton), just message me for details.

I had some very supportive comments from friends and decided there was no point in giving up after the first weekend, as there was still time to sort out whatever the problem is, about people not coming. Part of it is my fault, as I had not completely finished and so hadn’t sent out the invites to my friends. Although why no one came from the fringe I don’t know. I’ll be contacting the fringe organisers and asking what I can do to get more traffic.

Its been particularly hard getting ready for this exhibition because both my parents went into hospital and have been very ill, so I’ve had more important things to deal with. Because of that, I made a special feature of the photos I took of Mum and Dad, at the exhibition. Having them both ill, it suddenly seemed really important to feature them more heavily.

I will be continuing to work on my exhibition while I am there, so it will improve each day. Also next week, it will get bigger because Mishon Mackay are moving to their new offices down the road. I have to say that Diedre from MM has been very supportive, and everyone there has been very sweet and non judgemental about the work, so even though I feel embarrassed about showing it, it was definitely the right decision to show it there.

Here is the official invite
