We had the pleasure of helping organise the twelfth event for the Photographers’ Dining Club, which took place on Thursday 6th April 2017.

Held quarterly, the Photographers’ Dining Club is an evening of photography talks, great food and new connections. With the theme for this event being “Getting Commissioned,” the evening consisted of 4 fantastic guest speakers followed by a Q&A panel discussion.

Speakers and Special Guests:

David Wren (Photographer and filmmaker, recently signed by agent Germaine Walker)

Steve Ryan (Food and portrait photographer and Co Founder of Root + Bone and 40FT Brewery)

Dannie-Lu Carr (Communication and Creativity Specialist, TEDx Speaker)

Guests enjoyed a lovely 3 course dinner, including sharing food platters and plenty of beer and wine to go round!

We took care of all the logistics; from finding the venue, sourcing the catering as well as setting up on the day. We needed an interesting and versatile location to host the event, and using our location library we were able to provide the perfect setting in the heart of Brixton; Location #3913.

We look forward to seeing where the next event takes us!_X8A9794
