Over 250 of the biggest international brands, including Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fujifilm and OM-System will be there – with new kit to try, live demos and unmissable offers. Plus, this is your chance to meet the experts behind some of the big-name brands – all under one roof. You’ll find the full rundown here.
- Phenomenal Super Stage line-up
Renowned landscape photographer Colin Prior and conservationist and underwater photographer Cristina Mittermeier are among the compelling line-up of global speakers taking to the Super Stage. There’s also Chase Jarvis, Christina Ebenezer, Kaylee Greer, Roberto Valenzuela, Jack Harries. Book in advance to secure your space!
Colin Prior looks ahead to his session: “Having spent the last two decades photographing Pakistan’s Karakoram Mountains, I’m keen to share the importance of working on long term projects, which in my opinion are the only way a photographer can differentiate her or himself from the herd. The dichotomy for photographers today is that depth takes time and time takes money and I’ll discuss ways of surmounting this.”
- New for this year
The show delivers fresh content and cutting-edge creativity each year. New for this September’s show is the Creator Stage with experts set to advise on snapping stand-out social content. The On Location Stage delves into the world of destination photography and film with a packed programme focusing on travel, weddings and everything in-between. Plus, the Video Hub will combine the best brands and expertise in video, showcasing video kit and a wealth of opportunity to discover more about film and film production.
- Headline stages
In addition to the new features, a packed programme of free talks includes firm favourites: the Editing & Post-production Theatre, Analogue Showcase, Behind the Lens, The Studio and Photo Live Stage, where visitors can pick up creative approaches and learn techniques to put into practice straight away.
