GRAIN Portfolio Development Day: BCU Parkside Campus

GRAIN Portfolio Development Day: BCU Parkside Campus

19th October 2013

BCU Parkside Campus, Birmingham


GRAIN, the photography hub and network for the West Midlands, is excited to be delivering one of its first professional development opportunities in the region in collaboration with Birmingham City University and its project partners. The event is ticketed and places must be booked in advance.  

During the day there will be a series of talks by expert professionals Mahtab Hussain, Pete James, Louise Clements and Rodrigo Orrantia, advice sessions and one to one reviews to help emerging photographers, artists who work in photography and students to develop a professional portfolio.

For many photographers and artists a portfolio is the main way to secure work, commissions and exhibitions.  It is the way in which you show people your work and the main way in which you demonstrate your talent, your career and your ambition.

The day is a must for emerging photographers who wish to understand how to develop their work and their portfolio in order to secure opportunities.


Participants:  (Price:  £20 for professionals, concessions for students £12)

Booking is essential – please go to

All participants must bring along their portfolio or examples of their photographs.

To maximize the benefit of this opportunity, participants are advised to avoid showing their portfolios electronically but are encouraged to bring a set of 20 or more prints of their work.
