“The capacity to learn is a gift; The ability to learn is a 
skill; The willingness to learn is a choice.” Brian Herbert

After many requests to organise educational events more often, we are now introducing a new membership program every month.

Helsinki Photo Festival is a community which has grown over the years to a well connected network of photo enthusiasts and photographers. Our Membership program provides opportunities to learn new things about photography, visit inspiring photo exhibitions, and make good lasting memories. 

Our first FolioMeet (Portfolio Review) is scheduled for February 3 from 11am-2pm. The location we will confirm once we know how many have signed up. We have various suitable partners in downtown Helsinki we can chose for ths educational event.

FolioMeet is a free, monthly portfolio review group for members. This program provides members, both emerging and established, with the opportunity to discuss their work in a casual and supportive environment with members and a guest artist, writer, curator or other professionals from the Helsinki arts community.

The review is run like a group critique: Each participant has 20 minutes to share a project and receive feedback from the reviewer and the rest of the group. Before the review, participant should prepare 5-20 images from a single body of work that is nearing completion as well as a few questions to guide discussion.


You can join our community and review our membership benefits on our membership section.
