Congratulations to Jerwin John Civil (left image) and Pascale Hustings (right image)
The London Photo Festival is extremely well-conducted and has a welcoming feel, all thanks to the founders who are very kind and accommodating. I especially liked the tasteful presentation of photographers’ work, and the simplicity of the venue itself. The high standard of this Festival is reflected in the quality of printing and framing as well. Being both affordable and well-visited, I believe it provides amateur as well as professional photographers with the perfect opportunity to get great exposure at low cost.
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

The winner of the public vote, the f-Factor, will also win photography related prizes!
We believe in giving new and emerging photographers a chance they would rarely get elsewhere: the opportunity to exhibit their work in a relaxed, professional environment.
Unlike other galleries, exhibitions and festivals, we do not judge your work – as long as it is not offensive, we will display it. All you have to do is pay a small fee and you can enter here.
