The exhibition is on Friday 8th March 6.30pm to 8.30pm. at The Towner Gallery in Eastbourne. I’ve had two photos selected, Birthday and Bluebells. Just delivered them today. It felt great to be selected for such a big gallery. This is a first for me. It’s great to begin to get some recognition for my work. It was fabulous to wander round and take a sneak preview of the exhibition.
I’ve put the prices up now too.
Posting a photo from the private view at Photofusion on Thursday night. It was packed, but luckily my photo was at the top, near the ceiling, so could be seen no matter what. My friends, Suzie and Robert, are kindly pointing it out, pretending that its causing a sensation! Really enjoyed the whole evening and went for a meal afterwards. It was also the seven year anniversary of Barry and me meeting (6th December.) We met at the Hayward Gallery at a Christmas private view, so it was quite fitting to be at a private view with one of my photos on the wall. Had a couple of people come up to me and ask if it was my photo. Apparently, I look a bit like Meryl Streep in the photo.
I will be exhibiting my photo- Birthday, from “Photos I’ll never take” at the Annual Photofusion Salon. Its in London on Thursday 6th December 2012, 18.30 -21.00. 17a Electric Lane, Brixton, London SW9 8LA
Its a Group show and will be on until 18th January.

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. Left: Jane Ward | Right: Daniel Ali 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. Left: Olivia Poppy Coles | Right: Richard Pilnick Membership at Photofusion offers a support network and creative environment in which artists can develop and exchange skills, knowledge and improve business acumen. Ranging from working professionals, amateur hobbyists, through to the new generation of emerging young photographers, this exhibition is a celebration of our Members’ dedication to the photographic art form and an opportunity for them to showcase their talent Click here for a full list of Members’ Benefits This year the majority of the work on display will be for sale.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org before Monday 26 November, saying “Yes, I’m interested in London (or Brighton) workshops” TRI-POD NETWORK 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. EXHIBITION OPPORTUNITY 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.
