On Wednesday 19 Oct 2017 around 300 people attended the opening night of the 2017 London Photo Show. Exhibitors, with their invited guests, came along for a brilliant evening. A few photos from the night by Richie Hall.
The London Photo Show is passionate about the power of photography to tell stories, provide pleasure and grow the confidence of our exhibitors. For these reasons, we’re seeking a charity or cause that we can partner with to give someone the opportunity of exhibiting (for free) at the London Photo Show in October 2017.
We’d like someone to take one of the spaces in the show to tell a story. This could be to document the work of a charity or bring to light a cause or issue and raise awareness. It could be something else, we’re open to suggestions!
If this sounds like you, your charity, or a cause you care about, please contact us.
2017 Edition of the London Photo Show Open for Entries Giving Emerging Photographers An Incredible Opportunity
The London Photo Show is back for a third run, giving photographers eager to showcase their work an incredible opportunity to reach a wide audience and network with members of the public, the media and industry professionals.
The show is the brainchild of the 36exp Photographers’ School and was born when the founders realised that too many great images weren’t being seen. As a result, the show offers a unique platform for aspirational photographers to showcase their work and build a buzz about their images.
Building on the success of the two previous sold out shows, this year’s exhibition promises to be even bigger and better than ever. With a prime London location and the ability to connect with photography buyers and art lovers, entering the show gives keen photographers the perfect way to exhibit their work. The diversity of the images displayed, from landscape photos to abstract shots, guarantees that the show draws a large and varied audience. As well as a chance to get feedback and even sell images, the London Photo Show will also award a number of prestigious accolades recognising the best images.
Andrew Mason, founder of the London Photo Show, said “After we received such a great response from the last show, we’ve got even bigger plans this year, giving more photographers the chance to display their art. It’s tough for photographers to get their work seen, but the London Photo Show offers them an amazing chance to put their work in a well-known, prominent, central London gallery. It’s just what these photographers need to build their profile and get noticed.”
Exhibitors will also get an opportunity to showcase their work to friends and family at the launch event. Promising to be an excellent evening with a fun, creative atmosphere, over 150 guests will be in attendance on the 19th October. The guest list also includes press and event sponsors, bloggers and the media, providing an unrivalled networking opportunity.
The London Photo Show will be open to the public from the 18th October – 22nd October, at the Strand Gallery in central London. It is minutes from Charing Cross and Embankment stations.

The London Photo Show offers photographers a chance to exhibit their work in a central London location, receive awards, get feedback, sell their photos, and build their profile. Building on the success of two previous shows and organised by the same people behind the 36exp Photographers’ School, the 2017 exhibition is set to connect aspirational photographers with a wider audience.
Due to the popularity of the first London Photo Show in September 2016, we decided to do it all again in December and hosted another sold out show. This time we had 16 exhibitors displaying an amazing feast of work covering everything from travel, nature, art nude, urban, architecture, landscape and documentary photography. People displayed between one and twelve prints in their 2m space. Prints were again produced to a super high quality on everything from metal to canvas.
Bhav Gulabivala was awarded the prestigious award of the best photographer in the show. Congratulations to Bhav on his lovely body of atmospheric work from around the world.
The September 2016 London Photo Show kicked off in style with a thronging and buzzing Private View. Around 150 people came along to check out the brilliant work on display from our 16 exhibitors.
And over the opening days of the show, we had a steady flow of visitors coming into the gallery to check out the work. Photos by Lorrraine Caballero Simpson.
