Chris Packham  11:00  

Nothing is brilliant

Chris Packham

But some things come close! The perfect picture is unattainable and trying to make it is frustrating, disappointing and depressing. However, getting closer to it is exciting, enlivening and occasionally momentarily exhilarating! Thinking and planning are crucial and being ruthlessly self-critical is the greatest asset to progress. The reality is difficult when wildlife is involved; taking control is invariably impossible. Chris will show his better efforts and tell the audience the truth about how he got them.

Scott Kelby 11:00       

The stuff they don't tell you

Scott Kelby

When Scott gave this presentation for the first time, so many participants came up afterwards to ask, “Why didn’t anybody tell us this stuff?! These are the things that, once you realize them, can propel your image-making to the next level because it opens your eyes to things that are usually passed one-on-one (maybe from a mentor to an apprentice), or not at all. Scott lays it all out there, and really opens your eyes to a new way of thinking about photography that will transfer directly to the type of images you make from here on out. This will be one you’ll be talking about.

Peter Dench 16:00 

The picture in-between

Peter Dench

Award winning photojournalist, Peter Dench, realised early on that you don’t have to jump on an aeroplane to the front line of war to take photographs; you can just step on a bus and pop down to the local pub. Dench’s work is witty, challenging, sometimes dazzling, sometimes affecting - an often laugh-out-loud, visual romp through the quirkier aspects of human life. Dench will be showcasing 20 years of image making - from the beaches of Bulgaria to the bar stools of Britain, a kaleidoscopic experience, not to be missed.
