We are delighted to announce our judge for next month’s Festival! @photopositive #photography #London

He’s known for his versatility and ability to tackle most subjects with a minimum of fuss. He’s used by some of the biggest brands in the imaging industry (Canon, SanDisk, Manfrotto, Lastolite) as a brand ambassador because of his imagery and because of his ability to teach and present to audiences.  You can see more of David’s work here.

We are delighted to be collaborating with @thephotowalkers Africa’s #photography tour specialists #africa

Looking for your next photography challenge?  How about joining The Photo Walkers on a once in a lifetime experience in Southern Africa – simply sit back and reap the rewards of their team’s many years of experience in the bush and behind the lens.  You can find out about their forthcoming tours to Botswana here.

“I recently had the opportunity to take part in a trial of a photographic skills course as an option on safari in Botswana. Photographing the amazing wildlife and stunning landscapes is central to most safaris, but the current crop of digital cameras in auto mode do it all for you don’t they?  Well think again. Over the course of several days Peter Hassall and Leanne Dryburgh (thephotowalkers.com) with their infectious enthusiasm gave the group a real feeling for how good photography is more than point and shoot. In one-to-one sessions they covered topics such as setting up the camera, interpreting meter readings relative to the quality and intensity of light, composition and framing the picture and, importantly, the advantages of manual control. There was also an opportunity to try out different lenses and even cameras. I found this a really stimulating programme and would recommend this option to anyone with an interest in photography at any level.”  D.W London
