Sponsoring First Women by printing exhibition materials for the First Women Project. The partnership was formed after Metro featured the project in 2014 following a creative consultation to review the First Women Portfolio.
Photography organisation that offers support, and networking for creative photographers worldwide. We work with them to provide opportunities to promote their work and make new connections via meetups, talks, and exhibitions.
Metro Imaging has a reputation for longstanding collaborative approaches to the photography and visual arts industry. At its core it recognises the need to work closely with individuals and institutions – so it was only natural that the company developed a programme to support projects and organisations by the way of partnerships. The aim is to maximise every opportunity to support and promote the partnership and to engage with the wider creative community.
Each partnership is bespoke and as individual as the group and it’s objectives. Metro Imaging constructs a support network that might include member offers and discounts for production; cross-promotional PR and marketing strategies; portfolio reviews and advice, competition judging and prize giving to workshops, lab tours and guest lectures.
