Bob Carlos Clarke to headline seminars programme - He will be making a welcome comeback to Focus and will join travel photographer Chris Coe and one of the hits of Focus 2002, Australian wedding photographer Malcolm Mathieson, on the Focus Talks programme.
Bob Carlos Clarke, always entertaining, often controversial, never predictable, is to headline the seminars programme at Focus on Imaging 2003.
He will be making a welcome comeback to Focus and will join travel photographer Chris Coe and one of the hits of Focus 2002, Australian wedding photographer Malcolm Mathieson, on the Focus Talks programme. He is to present two sessions each day starting on the opening day, Sunday, February 23rd, and ending on Tuesday, February 25th, with Coe and Mathieson both giving three presentations each day.
Full details of the programme are available from the Focus website, www.focus-on-imaging.co.uk, as is booking information, but briefly Bob Carlos Clarke is planning a spectacular show that includes a short film of a studio photo session and a live on-screen lighting demonstration with one of his favourite models, followed by a lively, interactive chat.
His audience will also be able to buy signed copies of "Shooting Sex" at a special price, and enjoy an opportunity to acquire some affordable, limited edition lithographic prints created especially for the event.
Chris Coe's sessions will have three themes, Travel Photography, Landscape Photography and Stock Photography, and will offer practical advice and guidance on how to create the kind of attention grabbing pictures which simply demand to be published - and which can also mean cash in the bank.
Chris Coe specialises in landscape, people and travel photography and his work is widely published. He has photographed and written many books and his first, "The Art of Landscape Photography", has become a textbook for many photographic courses. As a self-taught photographer, his approach is practical and informative with great emphasis placed on creativity and the photographs themselves, rather than the equipment used to take them.
Australian photographer but world wide lecturer Malcolm Mathieson returns to Focus this year with a series of talks aimed at giving his audience the tools to make money from wedding photography. This totally new presentation will cover all aspects of the business of wedding photography from setting up a business through to the final sale.
It will be packed with "how to" information, business systems that work, advertising methods that make the phone ring, photographic techniques that will allow photographers to charge more and sales tips that do make money. Malcolm is in demand worldwide and comes to Focus after talking at WPPI in Las Vegas - after Focus he goes to Italy and Austria and then returns to the USA.
The Focus Talks programme has become one of the most successful ingredients in Europe's biggest annual photographic and imaging industry exhibition and it's expected that each of the sessions will be sell outs. Tickets cost £20 (plus VAT @ 17.5%).
