Speaker line-up

This year's speaker line-up included photographers and filmmakers; best in their field. Specialising in everything from social engagement to photography business, long exposure to macro, they shared their expertise with visitors throughout the four days.

Ian McNeill

As a tutor, Ian loves sharing the experience he’s gained working in both the photo and photo finishing industry with those he teaches. After several years spent at Canon UK, he joined forces with Nina Bailey and Brian Hall, to shape what is now EOS Training Academy, where he leads the software side of the training programme. He also delivers some of the more technical practical events, like the popular Understanding Focusing course.

His vast technical knowledge on the hardware, software and post-processing techniques is second-to-none.

Ian has the unique ability to explain the most complex of features – both on camera hardware and within digital imaging programs – in simple and understandable ways so that, whatever your level, you can benefit from his knowledge. He gives you the confidence to try, whether that’s when taking images or exploring the tools available in popular imaging programs.

He’s also an expert in the much-underutilised Digital Photo Professional (DPP) – Canon’s own RAW editing software that comes free with your Canon EOS camera – and will be delivering a live DPP demo on-stand.

Ian delivers his extensive knowledge in a succinct and comprehensible way, along with a bit of humour to give your brain a break occasionally! After time spent with Ian, you will come away inspired to take better pictures along with the knowledge of how to enhance them simply and effectively with today’s image editing programs..
