Ian Brierley started making money out of photography as soon as he got his first camera at the age of 15. Since then he's travelled wherever he's wanted to, whenever he's wanted to, paying his way through (often speculative) photography. He's photographed Her Majesty the Queen in Ghana, Miss Universe in Trinidad and Tobago and Miss Ghana in Accra, as well as doing an extraordinary range of other interesting and enjoyable work. His photography has illustrated a number of books.
At Travelling Light he'll be telling photographers how to do travel and tourism photography as working holidays - how to get airlines to sponsor flights, tourist boards and hoteliers to cover accommodation, and how to sell postcard designs and present other propositions, such as aerial photography, to potential buyers.
Ian will discuss his philosophy at Travelling Light - everything you really need can be taken as carry-on luggage on an airline flight. And you don't need irreplaceably expensive, complicated cameras either - these days Ian shoots on a single SONY Alpha A100 DSLR, because it provides all the features he needs in a lightweight and compact body.
