2. “ED HORWICH photographer
Ed talks about his beginnings in the commercial industry, his early days exhibiting in galleries as an ‘independent photographer’, printing for Martin Parr, teaching gallery workshops, and his year long commission to photograph the whole of London.
Ed has worked in the corporate area, design, book jackets and CD covers, and editorial, as well as creating work for sale in galleries.
He also covers the concerns of the photographic industry, from his time as a non-executive director of the Association of Photographers.

3. “Social Media, the Internet & The Photographer”
Ed was an early adopter of both the internet itself and its most recent manifestation in Social Media.
A bi-product of this has been his establishment of an internet company servicing small businesses including photographers and artists.
Ed was also at the forefront as a founding member of the UK’s Digital Imaging Group, which sought to establish working standards and codes of practice across the creative and advertising industries.

Ed offers Portfolio Reviews, and general workshops looking at work development.
These can be in association with being a guest speaker, or as a stand alone offering.
Appropriate for photographers at any stage, Ed will focus on the needs of the group or individual.
Those attending should bring along as much work as possible, so they gain the most benefit.
