Press Release:
Panasonic have teamed up with Channel Five for brand new advertiser-funded programme commission How To Take Stunning Pictures, an instructional series offering expert tips and advice for capturing professional-quality images, it was announced today
The 6 x 60 min series – produced by Blink Films - is presented by The Gadget Show’s Suzi Perry and sees the world’s top photographers teach tricks of the trade to amateur snappers.

Each programme focuses on a different theme; portrait, action, celebration, landscape, holidays and animals. Photography master classes will be provided by Martin Parr, famous for his unique photographs of the great British holiday; top celebrity photographer Harry Borden; award-winning wildlife photographer Tim Flach; wedding photographer of the year Emily Quinton; Sports photographer of the year Bob Martin and top landscape photographer Charlie Waite. After learning from the best in the business, the amateur photographers will be sent on assignments to see if they can produce a truly standout image.
The series will be sponsored by Lumix, Panasonic’s range of photographic cameras and will also be available to view on Panasonic’s IPTV service Vieracast. Panasonic will receive branding on Channel Five’s dedicated How To Take Stunning Pictures website and on episodes viewed via the broadcaster’s on demand platform, Demand Five. Additionally Blink Films have produced a series of Panasonic branded short films featuring more tips on how to take stunning pictures which will be exclusively available on Panasonic and Channel Five’s websites.

The partnership was brokered by advertiser-funded programming specialist sales agent Krempelwood and Panasonic’s media agency Vizeum.

Everyone has a camera and wants to take stunning pictures. It’s fantastic to feature world-renowned photographers who will share their skills and top tips.”
Managing Director of Blink Films, Dan Chambers, said: “What’s exciting about this series is that we’ve got Britain’s top photographers to give really useful advice on taking great pictures.  Watching the rough cuts has certainly improved my recent snaps.”

Great and well overdue. For some time I've been saying that there was need for a photography programme on the TV. The last one I remember was "Picture This".

The idea of this program was great BUT its just Londoners with very expensive & sophisticated camera taking pictures.
For "joe public" with a compact digital who doesnt understand the terminology used and with no idea what settings should be used to get "better" quality photos, the program has FAILED.
Why didnt the presenters & experts talk through the basic settings, show what the various buttons & dial settings do.
For most people they just want to capture something immediately, not wander around for several hours waiting for the"perfect shot" when all the conditions and weather is perfect. They dont have time or knowledge to fine tune the camera settings and have a tripod to avoid blur.
Please lets have a second series where the basics are fully and simply explained.
Camera clubs are no better than this program, he who has the biggest and best "wins", they look down upon and dont want the people with compact digitals to join their club!
BTW - I use a Lumix TZ5 so have the "best compact" but many photos are poor quality because I dont know how to use all its settings to get the best results everytime.
