Metro sponsors Young Photographers' Alliance 'Home' exhibition

10 December 2012
Metro Imaging is thrilled to be once again involved in sponsoring The Young Photographers’ Alliance and is printing and mounting in the region of forty C Type prints for the upcoming group show “Home”: YPA Mentoring 2012 which opens at Margaret Street Gallery on the 8th January 2013.

Metro Imaging has been an active supporter of the charity for two years which was created in 2009 to nurture young photographic talent, helping photographers aged between 18 and 29 to develop both the technical skills and business acumen required to build successful and sustainable careers.  

Metro views the YPA as one of the most important schemes in their mentoring programme to which we are extremely dedicated. Individual staff members at Metro provide one-to-one mentoring to the young photographers, passing on industry knowledge, advise and information whilst also offering support in what can be a very tough and competitive industry.

The YPA Mentoring Programme links emerging artists with established photographers and picture editors/art buyers, teaching the mentees how to work to a brief while honing their technical skills and creative approach. The small teams of young photographers are collectively assigned a common brief for which the theme this year was “Home”. The mentors met regularly with their teams and offering support and guidance from the initial conceptual stage through to the final editing process they are given two months to deliver their final projects.
The exhibition itself features one image from each of the UK mentees and a small selection of pictures from the US and Thai teams.
