Leading up to this years fotofringe London – April 20 – we are asking photo professionals what triggers the yearly trip to Kings Place.
Alyson Whalley is a freelance Picture Researcher based in London:
Why will you are visiting fotofringe London 2016?
To meet the photo agency staff, its always nice to put a face to the voice.
How many time have you been to fotofringe?
This is my third visit.
Looking for any specific image subjects at this years event?
Nothing specific.. I visit fotofringe to see what images the new exhibiting photo agencies have and to talk with photo agencies I already use to learn about any new photo collections they are representing.
Any tips for photo researchers visiting the event for the first time?
Its worth visiting and speaking with agencies you think you already know as you may not be aware of the whole range of their collections /specialities
