Day One – Friday 31st January 2020.
A day packed full of inspirational speakers…
10:00-11:00 Emily Endean – ‘My Journey Through Landscape Photography’
Emily will be taking us through chasing light and interesting weather conditions to capture her favourite images; along with her journey of falling in love with nature and Landscape Photography. Emily’s passion for photography started not long after she turned 4(!!!), and after receiving her first DSLR in 2013, she lives and breathes photography claiming that she can’t quite remember what life was like before this!
11:30-12:30 Claire Osborne – ‘Creating Stories using the Ordinary…‘
Ever wondered what goes into Claire’s images.. stapling fruit together, bleeding hearts…? All will be revealed as Claire will be talking about her brilliant IOM images; where her inspiration comes from, how concepts develop, planning and setting up the shoot along with the editing process… you won’t want to miss this! Claire has been shooting since her early teens; the birth of her son 16 years ago sparked her true passion for photography. A full time professional since 2013 with Newborns being the main focus, Claire has since fallen in love with entering the IOM competition for herself, in result of which her creativity and skills have flourished into works of art!
12:30-13:30 LUNCH HOUR*
13:30-14:30 Sharon Wallis – ‘When Lightening Strikes’
Sharon will be talking about the big issues behind being a creative particularly when life talks a turn; finding confidence, strength and inspiration to carry on. This talk is sure to get you thinking…
Sharon’s professional photography career started in 2008 with the opening of her portrait studio, after running a small successful photography printing franchise. After a very traumatic end to 2017, she had two options… sink or swim! She totally changed her approach to business and introduced an exciting new concept that could help any business…
1500-1600 Clive Hall – ‘Walking in Their Footsteps – A Unique Master Craftsman Panel’
A Master Craftsman panel that you do not want to miss. Panel Member and twice Master Craftsman with The Guild of Photographers Clive Hall, will take you through the outstanding images he collated only made possible by a unique series of circumstances which resulted in a profound outcome in more ways than you might imagine! Come along and find out first hand how this award winning panel was shot; the emotion behind it and the techniques that made it possible. Find out why there are very few photographers in the country that could ever shoot this panel.
