Continuing its long-standing partnership and support of Brighton Photo Fringe, Metro Imaging is delighted to be the official print sponsor again for this year’s citywide celebration of photography, delivering the highest quality exhibitions in an innovative and exciting way. It really is an honour to be the official partner of an organisation that supports emerging photographers and lens-based artists, showcasing new talent and allowing all kinds of people to enjoy and experiment with photography.
The festival takes place throughout the month of October, and its 8th edition takes inspiration from Marvin Heiferman’s 2012 book and project for the Smithsonian Photography Initiative: click! photography changes everything. BPF18 explores how photography influences how we see and understand the world around us, hence by showcasing a vast range of photography the organisation aims to engage the community in debate about how we might harness photography to create a better world.
As main partners of Brighton Photo Fringe, every two years Metro awards BPF £10,000 credit to produce a series of exhibitions and all signage for the event. This includes the Open Solo Exhibition at ONCA with an installation by Sarah Howe; OPEN18 Young Photographers; and the Danny Wilson Memorial Award, with a premier portfolio prize with folio review and judging panel support.
Key Festival Events include:
29th September – Launch Events from 5pm.
30th September – Talk by Sarah Howe, OPEN18 Winner.
20th – 21st October – Photo Publishers Market.
27th October – Panel Discussion and International Festival Showcase, ACCA Various dates – Talks, Workshops, Guided Tours.

Prints ready for collection from 4 hours, or for delivery worldwide. We are able to produce bigger and better C-Type photo prints than anywhere else in the UK. Our photo prints can go up to 120 x 72 inches (3m x 1.8m) in size, giving you a huge choice of sizes when it comes to producing your prints.
While all of our colour and black and white photo printing services are of gallery quality, a lot of photographers and artists like to produce their fine art prints on Giclee watercolour paper, using archival pigment inks.
We can produce real Silver Gelatin 'Darkroom prints' from your digital files. Working with Ilford, we are able to print directly to Ilford Galerie Silver FB Glossy fibre based bromide photo paper and Ilford Galerie Digital Silver RC Pearl.
After your photos have been printed, our mounting team are able to mount the prints on a range of substrates, ranging from the lightweight foamex, foamboard or kapamount. We can also mount ctype photo prints onto more sturdy materials such as dibond or aluminium, backed with either battens or a subframe, depending on print size.
When ordering online, we offer a limited range of classic photo frames, in three finishes: white photo frame, smooth black photo frame or a solid light oak frame. Alternately, just order your prints online to take advantage of our great value online ordering system, then contact us to discuss alternate framing styles and our range of thousands of frame mouldings.
