Redeye, the Photography Network

Redeye, the Photography Network, is a not-for-profit Community Benefit Society set up to support photographers at every level, and build networks across photography. It is based in Manchester, UK, and has subscribers and users across the UK and globally. It aims to form a clear picture of the ways photographers and photographic artists are working now, and give them access to events, opportunities, advice and information that are relevant to their work and difficult to find elsewhere. Alongside this it works to bring photographic and other organisations together, to encourage ethical and best practice, and to build a voice for photography.

“Redeye is a leader among a strengthening body of nationally significant photography-focused organisations that address career development for professionals.” - Arts Professional

How can I get involved?

As a network Redeye depends on your participation and involvement. If you want to find out more about Redeye, please come along to one of our events, in particular our Network meetings, where you can meet our staff and hear and share ideas. We have a small team of regular volunteers: click here for more information.

Redeye's programme

Redeye delivers a range of events for photographers at all levels and genres. If you've never been and want to find out more, a Networking event would be a good place to start - they take place regularly in Manchester and Liverpool. We also have regular talks, walks, masterclasses, portfolio critiques, and workshops and seminars covering business, creative and technical matters. Our flagship annual event is the National Photography Symposium. Our long-term course devoted to helping people show their work is called Lightbox and runs every two years. We also provide a range of information and opportunities via this website, email newsletters and social media. Most of what we do is open to all, and all are welcome. Members get priority access and reduced prices on our events and activities, and there are occasional exclusive members' events and opportunities.


Redeye is very pleased to work with a large number of partner organisations to deliver its events, such as galleries, universities and other photographic and arts organisations. Redeye is a member of the following umbrella organisations:
