I've already posted this in the travel and events forums and posted a travel notice.  I'm posting here specifically looking for London artists who are interested/willing in letting me shadow/assist them.  I have already contacted a few artists I admire via their Facebook fanpage but I have unfortunately not received any replies from them.

I am hoping to get a work Visa next year so I am able to live in London for a year or two, so I want to network artists/photographers/stylists etc. Before I go there so I am not starting from scratch when I arrive.

Even if there are any artists who are willing to meet up for coffee or lunch and talk about what it's like to live/work in London, that would be fantastic.

I would love to hear if anyone has advice as to other ways I can network while I'm in London, and good ways to go about finding/contacting artists who would let me shadow and assist.  I have thus far not had much luck.
I will be there from the 13th to the 20th of May.

Cheers,

Hi! I'm also looking to assist other artists at the moment so I can build up my portfolio. I am fresh out of makeup school, AOFM in London.

Shoot me a message if you'd like to meet up for a coffee or whatnot when you get here!

It's a shame you won't be here in April (6th and 7th) - the UMAe is looking like a great place to network - http://www.umae.co.uk/

With any luck I should be in London on a contract this May. Doing the same thing as you and researching. Find anything good?
