The stage is set for a host of imaging experts to step out from Behind the Lens and reveal how they captured some of their most stunning shots at The Photography Show, Europe’s biggest imaging event in 2017.
Behind The Lens line-up
The line-up for the 2017 Behind the Lens Theatre includes Ryan Welch, who will share his experiences so far of building a highly profitable photography business through, ‘Shoot more. Edit less’. Welch’s initial success of shooting 47 weddings and 97 portrait sessions during his graduation year will make for an inspiring session for professionals eager to achieve a successful work-life balance.
In addition, and highlighting the array of sessions that the Behind the Lens Theatre will offer, fine art and fashion photographer, Bella Kotak, will delight the audience with tales of her whimsically inspired portraiture in her talk, ‘Capturing the magic’.
Clare Louise will explore the challenges often faced by creatives and offer her stance on why it’s best not to ‘fit’ in ‘Turn on the light – your passion is calling: A creatives guide to authenticity.’ She said:
“For me, 2017 is all about turning on that light inside that makes us shine. I understand just how difficult this can be when we’re bogged down by life and things aren’t quite going as we want or planned them to. I’m going to share some of what I’ve learnt along the way to inspire, motivate and help people pick up that passion and follow their dreams.”
Various panel discussions are also confirmed, including ‘Making a name in photography’ with Anna Fox, Laura Pannack, Lottie Davies and Natasha Caruana and ‘Are we all doomed? The Future of professional photography’ with Professional Photography magazine.
Other sessions on the Behind the Lens Theatre line-up: ‘Close-up and macro photography’ (John Humphrey), ‘Capturing time – the art of long exposure photography’ (John Miskelly) and ‘Social media – are you selling your soul to the devil’ (Emma-Lily Pendleton) among others.
With so many topics to inspire the professional photographer, the opportunity to go Behind the Lens with the speakers at The Photography Show 2017 is not to be missed.
Sessions are included in the show entry ticket fee and will take place on all four days of the show (18-21 March 2017).
