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

We announce our abstract/fineart judge- the multi talented @rosie_hardy #photography #abstract

Rosie Hardy is a conceptual art photographer based in the Peak District. Her surreal self portraiture and creative photo manipulations capture escapism at its prettiest. Hardy has been shooting for a decade, working her way as a school girl trekking through fields – with the cheapest equipment money could buy – (clutching handfuls of props and looking rather out of place) to trekking through fields with slightly more expensive, mud covered equipment, but lots more confidence and excitement.
Her “Big Break” came at age 19 when she was discovered by Maroon 5, and was asked to shoot their album cover, “Hands All Over”. Since then, she has worked with numerous brands such as Microsoft, Pandora and Random House, as well as celebrities and musicians, but she still loves to shoot a decent wedding and just can’t seem to stay away from those fields…
Her work is inspired by emotion and human connection, and the comfort that can be found in art during times of loss and heartache.
