Aspiring photographers are set to be given advice from renowned professionals in a day of lectures and portfolio reviews to be hosted by the Royal Photographic Society (RPS).

The event, called Creative Photography and Commerce, will take place at the Watershed in Bristol on 22 March.

It is primarily targeted at students and ‘early career photographers’.

Portfolio reviews will be open to photographers aged 35 and under, while a series of lectures – accessible to all – will focus on the ‘relationship between personal work and commercial practice’.

RPS director general Dr Michael Pritchard said: ‘Making a career in photography is challenging and making commercial success of your photography can be much harder.

‘The Society is pleased to bring together established photographers and industry professionals, to give the photographers of tomorrow the benefit of their experience.’

Photographers lined up to host portfolio reviews include Roger Tooth of the Guardian, Clare Hewitt and Ben Roberts.

Pritchard added: ‘This is the first time such an event has been held in the South West and we hope that those just starting their careers will take advantage of what will be a great day.’

A ticket to the lectures will cost £25, while a pass for both the lectures and portfolio reviews costs £55.
