Join us this MAY and be a part of our Martin Parr portrait studio weekend! Pets and props welcome.
We’ve had all sorts in the studio, from giant inflatable pizzas, to sumo wrestling outfits, to a 2-person pantomime donkey costume. The most dogs in one shoot has been 5 and the most rabbits has been 4. (The rabbits and dogs were not in the same shoot!) We’ve seen many colour-coordinated families, traditional outfits and everything in between.
Your very own signed Parr photograph will be available a few weeks later.
The event will be held at Martin Parr Foundation in Bristol and this will be the first time we’ve held a portrait studio for three years.
Tickets are £300.00 and this guarantees you a portrait session with Martin Parr and a signed 12×8 inch print made at Martin Parr Foundation.
Please select from one of the time slots available. Your shoot will then be allocated a specific time within your chosen slot and you will receive these details by email.
You can expect to spend approximately one hour at Martin Parr Foundation, which will include the registration process, prep time, and of course having your portrait taken by Martin Parr, followed by image selection with Martin’s team.
Additional print sizes are available and these can be ordered on the day alongside any multiple copies of your favourite portraits.
