Our most recent Face-to-Face event took place at the stylish Montgomery Club in Chicago. This intimate evening brought an international group of AtEdge photographers together with the top industry photo buyers and producers.

Over 40 photographers plus their agents flew in specifically for our May 12th evening and most took the opportunity to visit individual agencies as well.

Our exclusive Face-to-Face evenings are held twice a year in selected cities. Unlike traditional portfolio reviews, Face-to-Face events give AtEdge photographers the opportunity to introduce themselves and their work to some of the industry’s busiest creatives in a relaxed and comfortable environment, away from the chaos of the work day.
