London Photo Festival 2013 Portfolio Reviews

On the 16th and 17th May we both took part in the London Photo Festival located at The Crypt – St George the Martyr Church near Borough underground and Borough Market. A bi-annual event for amateur and semi-professional photographers the LPF offers the opportunity to exhibit photographic work, gain professional feedback and to join a thriving community of photographers. All the images in the exhibition were for sale with several successful sales to the viewing public.

Two hundred people attended the private view on the opening evening. Giles Duley was this years judge for the travel themed exhibition choosing the Best in Show and a 1st and 2nd runner up. The Best in Show prize went to Katelynn Mingyu and her photograph entitled ‘Passenger – NYC 2012′.

This year we were both asked to participate in the portfolio review program set up by LPF. It was great to meet fellow photographers keen to improve their skills, for us to offer advice on breaking into professional photography and inform them on possible avenues to explore furthering their fledgling careers.

We also had the opportunity to meet with Miriam Otterbeck and her colleague from ThePrintSpace for a chat about their printing, blog posts and future opportunities for collaborations with ThePrintSpace.

Whilst in London we managed to visit both the Tate Modern and The Photographers’ Gallery for a browse of Fine Art and photography as well as the glorious Borough Market for some fresh fruit and veggies including breakfast at ‘Roast‘ a restaurant located above Borough Market. A visit to the new Central Saint Martin’s Art School in Kings Cross completed our creative field trip where a 9 year temporary art project is taking place. At the moment there is a lightening bolt of silver adhesive vinyl spread 542m across the entire school by Swiss artist Felice Varini. This temporary site-specific installation will be up for 3 months and there is a viewing platform opposite the front of the school and directly in front of the vast Google development that is going on. The development in this area is a 25 year project and we definitely witnessed a shift towards bringing more people, retail and the arts to this part of London.

We both had a great time in London, using our trusty travel friend airbnb.com (£40 for a room in central London!) for our accommodation and are looking forward to attending more LPF exhibitions in the future.
