We're excited to announce the first Ffoton month-long photography exhibition during October in partnership with the very lovely team at Littleman Coffee Co. in the centre of Cardiff!
Not content with bringing you talented Welsh photographers via our website and Podcast, we thought photography fans and the wider general public might like to view work up close by some of the people we've spoken with to date and some others who are up and coming.
Ffoton Wales are delighted to have Eleri Griffiths, Matt Botwood, Dan Wood and Rebecca Thomas showing their work - each for a week through October - in the main Cafe space in Littleman Coffee Co. And in the downstairs space we're showing the work of four other new photographers sourced jointly by Ffoton Wales and Littleman Coffee Co. We'll be using #ffoton4/4 on Twitter to promote and give updates on the show.
The Ffoton Exhibition 2015 kicks off on Saturday 3rd October with the work of Llanwrst-based Eleri Griffiths but we'll be celebrating with all the photographers with a preview from 6.30pm on Friday 2nd October - and we'd like all photography fans to join us for informal drinks, discussion and a great chance to meet other photographers.
To help us organise the show we've had some support from great local businesses in South Wales: the Welsh co-working pioneers IndyCube; technology PR & Marketing experts Cohesive Communications; mobile Application and Games developers Rant Media; Craft brewers The Celt Experience; exhibition display experts Semaphore; and photography-sales API developers Pwinty and their new pwint.ly service.
Putting on a show - even a small one - needs funding to help organise, get signage and have some print bits produced. So we've decided to create a Ffoton Wales Tip Jar as an easy way for photography and Ffoton followers to make a donation to our efforts. Big thanks for any amount you can spare - it all helps! You can help Support Ffoton here.
We hope to see you at the launch bash on 2nd October!
