Photo-Forum Heads Up

I know a strange title to begin with however after last months exciting talk; I thought I would give everyone a heads up as to who will be talking at the next event.

First off we have two very distinct photojournalists this month; firstly we kick off with David Hoffman Photo-Forum Co founder and a board member of the British Photographic Council, a founding member of Editorial Photographers UK, and the campaigning group “I’m a Photographer not a Terrorist"

David Hoffman has specialised in photographing social issues for more than 36 years, documenting events such as Thatcher's state funeral, the Olympic Protest and Operation Vendetta, and not forgetting social documentary locations of interest such as London's Smithfield market.

Secondly and just as equally revered is Alex MacNaughton, Alex was the on the original admin panel at Photo-Forum London.

Photo-Forum is an independently run group organising talks by photographers for photographers, we aim to create a space for working photographers to come together to share, discuss, learn and socialise.

Alex MacNaughton of course has covered events like rally for peace, Kisumu, Kenya and the M11 protest at Claremont Road, London. So this looks like it's going to be a talk that will focus on photojournalism and the working photographer is welcome to come along to the event, in fact anyone who has an interest in photography is welcome to come along.

The talk takes place at Drummond Street, London at Calumet Photographic, last month was inspirational to myself as a street photographer and am sure no doubt I will walk away with such a buzz from this talk too.

Talks are held on the second Thursday each month 6pm - 8pm. They are FREE and first come - first seated. Come and connect with fellow working photographers.

Photo-Forum is an independent group run by photographers for photographers. We encourage constructive questions, debate and discussion.
