TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY LIVE!

Photography comes alive at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) October 5th-7th

Following on from its hugely successful exhibition there this summer, Travel Photographer of the Year is returning to London’s Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) this autumn for Travel Photography Live! And it’s bringing some world-renowned photographers with it.

Nick Danziger, Steve Bloom, Eamonn McCabe, Jason Hawkes, Timothy Allen, Tom Mackie and Chris Weston are just a few of the photographic ‘giants’ who’ll be sharing the secrets behind their iconic images, and insights into their photography, with the audience of photographers and travellers.

Travel Photography Live! will be a highly interactive, informative and hugely entertaining weekend, at which visitors can meet and learn from top professional photographers in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

The event kicks off in style on the evening of Friday, October 5th, with the keynote lectures in the Society’s magnificent Ondaatje Theatre. Nick Danziger - travel photographer, filmmaker and one of the world’s most renowned photojournalists – will take the audience ‘Around the World in 80 Images’. And Steve Bloom - famed documenter of the apartheid years in South Africa, and award-winning travel and wildlife photographer – will present the story of his photographic journey ‘From 1970’s South Africa to the world today’.

This is followed by two action-packed days, where photography lovers will be spoilt for choice, with talks and workshops going on throughout the Society. These will cover many areas of photography, including wildlife, aerial, adventure, fine art, advertising, editorial, travel and reportage, how to make money from photography, working with light, shooting on HD video, the art of editing images, the story of travel photography – and ‘Travel Photography is Dead!’
