SCN Networking Nights
What happens at Networking Nights?
Our meetings are totally informal. Just come along, grab a drink, and join us for some good old-fashioned chitchat. We don’t have an agenda or any specific routine to our evenings, we’ve always kept them completely open to whatever may happen…
You’ll find several of the SCN Group Admins at each event, so don’t be frightened if it’s your first time attending, there’s always familiar faces!
In 2014, we’ll return to our old habit of issuing name stickers for everyone – it’s much better to help put names to faces that way. It’s also a good way of recognising who’s involved in the Networking Night so you know who to look for!
You’ll usually find that we have a slideshow running either on a big TV or projector at the event. If you’ve decided to come along, you should make sure that you send us some of your images to show. You’re not going to have your images judged*, so don’t feel intimidated by that. We started to do these slideshows so that we had a talking point – we’d see people’s recent work – and talk about what we’re all up to.
If someone says to you, ‘what styles do you shoot’ or something like that – you can just direct them to the TV – ‘I do that’. It’s always better to show and share! Great for inspiration too.
But the point is still the same – the people who come to our networking nights do so for a reason – to come and see if they can find other creative folk to work with. That applies equally to photographers, models, makeup artists and the other creatives who are starting to join in.
So if you have an idea for a shoot, or a bigger project… come along, and see if you can find someone to help you realise it.
Just a couple of housekeeping tips though:
- All of our events are FREE to attend, with no pressure or no commitment to anything. Even if you’ve never done any modelling, or are just getting into photography, it doesn’t matter.
- All our regular monthly events start at 7.30pm.
- Our Glasgow event in particular is held in a licensed bar, so please ensure if you’re lucky enough to be not-far from 18yrs old.. that you have valid photo ID, just incase.
So, what are you waiting for?

See you at Networking!
* We’ll probably introduce a ‘favourite image’ picked by one of the attendees from each slideshow in 2014. But don’t worry, it’s not going to be a full-on judging panel!
