MEET UP: Caffeine & Machine + AUTO PHOTO


© Phil McGovern

Come and join us from 7pm on Thursday 15 February 2024  as we head to Caffeine & Machine: The Hill for an evening of all things AUTO PHOTO.

Karen Harvey (Founder and Creative Director of Shutter Hub and AUTO PHOTO) will be sitting down with Caffeine & Machine founder Phil McGovern as part of their Inside the Machine series, where guests from the automotive industry and car culture are invited to talk about their craft, how they approach it and take questions from the audience.

Karen will be speaking about her work as a photographer, curator, consultant, and publisher, as well as sharing how AUTO PHOTO Awards came to be what it is, where it’s going, and how it all works.

To make it an extra special evening, we’ll also be launching the AUTO PHOTO Awards 2023 digital exhibition, bringing along AUTO PHOTO 01 and 02, and ROAD TRIP (and one of our cars!) and officially awarding Phil with his Creative Impact Award.


If you’ve not visited The Hill, before, then this is the perfect time to join us for a friendly get-together. Come and enjoy an evening of conversation, photography, and cars.


Everyone is welcome, but booking is required. Tickets are free, and you can get your hands on yours, here.

Photography is encouraged, so bring your camera and get involved.


AUTO PHOTO Awards are powered by Shutter Hub, celebrating the best in automotive photography, while creating new connections between international communities and the photography and automotive industries.
