Martin Parr

Arguably one of the most legendary documentary photographers of his generation, Martin Parr will be headlining Foto Fest 2019. With over 100 of his own books published – and another 30 edited by him – Parr is most noted for his humorous and anthropological observations of human habits through the lens of social class structures.

At Foto Fest, Parr looks at his long career in photography and finishes with work from his recent National Portrait Gallery exhibition earlier this year.

Rachael Talibart

Award-winning photographer Rachael Talibart is most known for her Sirens portfolio, critically acclaimed photographs of stormy seas, named after creatures of myth and legend. Her work has been exhibited around the world, and she delivers photography workshops and tours as the owner of f11 workshops.

For Rachael, the coast isn’t the end of the land; it is the beginning of imagination and possibility. In her Foto Fest talk, Rachael will explain some of the techniques – from the conventional to the experimental – that she uses in her own work, why she makes the images that she does, and how she generates the ideas behind her work. In an age when it sometimes seems as though everyone is a photographer, Rachael will encourage you to create coastal images that stand out from the crowd.

Tom Way

Tom Way is an award winning professional fine art wildlife photographer who has been awarded in various international competitions including the European Wildlife Photographer of the Year. Spending the majority of his time overseas, Tom’s main passion is Africa where assignments have seen him focus on Elephants and Lions in Kenya, and Leopards in Zambia.

In his talk, Tom will discuss what it takes to be a Wildlife Photographer, tackling the issues of light, angles, and how to compose a sellable image. You’ll hear stories of Tom’s adventures abroad and how he went from working in a gym to taking and exhibiting wildlife images around the world.

Nigel Danson

Nigel Danson became a full-time landscape photographer after a life-changing accident at Yosemite Park, which caused him to leave his job as CEO of a software company he founded – something he describes as the best decision he ever made.
In his talk, Nigel will look at the tips, tricks, rules, and processes that he has learnt through making over 100 landscape photography videos that will help you improve your images and create prints that you’ll want to hang on your wall.
