The Photography Show 2016

Hope To See You In Birmingham!

Very happy to say I’ll be at the Photography Show again this year. For the duration of the show I’ll be with my friends and colleagues on the Snapper Stuff stand (B101 and B102) talking about Think Tank Photo bags (for whom I’ve been on the design board) and FLM‘s range of supports and helping out with any questions you may have.

Presentation

On Sunday, March 20th, 2pm-2.40pm, I’ll be giving an Olympus Visionary talk on my Opera By The River project at the Behind The Lens Theatre. I’ll share with you my thoughts and experiences on shooting this 11 month project at the prestigious Royal College of Music and naturally showing my favourite images from the reportage. I’ll also share which Olympus cameras and lenses I used along with some other equipment which were invaluable. Hope to see you there!

There will also be a unique opportunity to purchase a copy of the book that goes with this project. Please see THIS post for details. I’ll be happy to sign your copy for you!

On Monday, March 21st, 2pm-3pm, I’ll be a panelist on a discussion in the Piazza Suite 3; “Are staged or manipulated pictures ever acceptable? The panel discusses just how far you can go…”. This discussion brought to you by Professional Photography magazine is sure to be interesting, so hope to see you there too.

Lastly, do make sure you pop by and see my friends at the Eizo stand. They’ll be showing my photographs and video work to showcase just how great my favourite monitors are. Colour and density accuracy and built in automated hardware calibration! Definitely worth asking a demo.

The Photography Show 2014

Hope To See You There!

I’m pleased to say that I’ll be at The Photography Show from March the 1st to the 4th, 2014, at the NEC in Birmingham, UK. I’ll be there in two roles; giving talks at the Olympus stand and also working with my friends at Snapperstuff, showcasing the bags I use and generally chatting about photography.

I shall be giving talks at the Olympus stand (G30, Hall 2) in their purpose built seminar room. Places are limited for each talk, and although the talks are free, make sure you stop buy and collect a ticket to reserve a place. I’ll be sharing my experience with the OM-D E-M1 and the new super sharp Olympus 25mm f1.8 lens (along with the Olympus 14-40mm f2.8PRO and 45mm f1.8), on a recent trip to Los Angeles and sharing pictures and video of my reportage during the trip.

I shall be showing a lot of images that’ll be shown for the first time at the show, along with a multimedia video combining photographs and video (all shot on the E-M1) along with audio; this will also be the first time this is shown. It’s going to be a visual delight! Come and see the LA Diary!

I shall be at the Snapperstuff stands (H60 and J60, which are opposite each other in Hall 12) the rest of the time, showing and talking about my favourite bags from Think Tank Photo. I’ve been using these bags for well over seven years now and have taken them on assignment all over the world. If you have any questions about the range, or just want to talk photography or gear, pop by.
