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,
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%).
