Landscape Photography Conference
November 2016 in the Lake District
Amateur Photographer who plays with big cameras and film when in between digital photographs.
Get together a bunch of your favourite landscape photographers to give presentations to like minded individuals and have a crack at the same time. Two years ago we did just that and from our feedback we think it went quite well. It was too late to organise another event the following year but the good news is that we’ve got our act together and have planned another conference for this year and it’s looking like a good one!
Charles Cramer, Bruce Percy, John Blakemore, Simon Norfolk, Mark Littlejohn and Erin Babnik and that’s just for starters. We’re also including a few ‘lightning’ community talks - 10 minute presentations to show your work or you project. If you want a slot, please get in touch.
The event is more than just listening to a bunch of speakers though. The chance to meet up and chat with like minded photographers shouldn’t be underestimated. We have a wonderful community of photographers in the UK and our previous conference triggered a few joint projects and friendships and also pushed a few people into new areas (see Robin Jones’ recent article). We purposefully have 15 minutes in between talks so you can chat and have a coffee and we only have one session running because we want everyone to have a shared experience.
We also have a Saturday night dinner where we may not see a rerun of Hans Strand’s performance of the British and Swedish national anthem on a Heineken bottle but hope to have something approaching that creative peak.
We still haven’t finished the lineup of speakers (a couple of slots to go) so if you have any suggestions please let us know. Also, if you have any other ideas for the conference we’d love to hear them - as much as possible this is a community event so please let us know what you think.
The sales for tickets are now open to everyone, click here to visit the page to see more information and the first draft of our conference guide (downloadable PDF).
The conference runs from 18th to the 21st of November 2016.
