NEW CONTENT AND FORMAT FOR 2015!

Learn about travel photography from some of the leading exponents of the craft. Hosted by the team at Wanderlust magazine, organisers of the UK’s largest amateur travel photography competition, these seminars will give you the inspiration and skills to take your travel photos to the next level.

The three NEW seminars offer a mixture of informative lectures and open group discussion. They are designed to work alongside each other so you can attend a single session, or come to all three for a more complete overview. This year we have created more intimate workshops with a limited number of participants to ensure you get the best learning environment possible, plus this gives a brilliant chance to question the experts themselves.

We have created a selection of sessions, each lasting 2 hours, so whether you are a complete beginner, intermediate or an advanced photographer there will be something for you - see below for the options and timings. 

 

Seminar 1: Photographing People and Places
Do you feel awkward taking photographs of people? Renowned photographer Paul Harris will advise on how to meet, greet and get photographs you can be proud of.

Level: Beginner/Intermediate

Seminar expert:

Paul Harris - Paul first discovered the art of storytelling through photography during a four month sojourn in the Steppes of Mongolia. He has continued to travel widely on both personal and commissioned projects for commercial, editorial and charitable clients including The Sunday Times, San Francisco Examiner (US), Geographical Magazine, British Airways and Dorling Kindersley.

Dates & Times - please choose from either:

Saturday 17 January 9:30-11:30
or
Sunday 18 January 12:30-14:30

 

Seminar 2: How to Tell Stories Through Your Photography
Successful travel photography is about telling stories, but how do you make your photographs appeal to a wider audience than just your family and friends? This workshop provides ideas and inspiration to help you create a narrative in a single photo, a sequence of images, or within a complete photo story. 

N.B. You can submit ONE image in advance for critique as part of the session.
