Initially set up in 2011 to celebrate and promote the rejected images from the world-renowned Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize
, Portrait Salon 2015 is bigger and more inclusive than previous years.
Every entrant to Portrait Salon 2015 will this year have the opportunity to have one print selected from the portraits they have had rejected by the 2015 Taylor Wessing competition. The resulting exhibition will take place in London in November 2015.
Visitors to the print exhibition will be able to vote on their favourite three portraits and the three most popular photographers will be able to choose from the following prizes: a bespoke 1-1 session with our expert technicians here at Metro Imaging, a portfolio review with Lucid Representation Photographic Agency
, a full days retouching at Stanley’s Post
, and a career advice session with Creative Advice Network
There will also be a collaboration event with Miniclick and Portrait Salon during a ‘The Heart Grows Fonder’ event at The Embassy Tea Gallery that will include all the portraits selected in this year’s Portrait Salon. Participants will have the chance to create their own, unique Portrait Salon ‘zine’.
Metro is also involved by offering open days for collection and drop of off images involved in Portrait Salon 2014 and 2015. See below for all dates and information.
