Travel Photography Live!

Following on from its hugely successful exhibition there this summer, Travel Photographer of the Year is returning to London’s Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) this autumn for Travel Photography Live!

Running from 5-7 October 2012, Travel Photography Live! will be an interactive, informative and entertaining weekend where attendees will be given the chance to meet and learn from some of the world's most renowned photographers.

Some of the photographers who’ll be sharing the secrets behind their iconic images, and insights into their photography are: Nick Danziger, Steve Bloom, Eamonn McCabe, Jason Hawkes, Timothy Allen, Tom Mackie and Chris Weston.

The even kicks off with keynote lectures in the Society’s magnificent Ondaatje Theatre. Nick Danziger - travel photographer, filmmaker and one of the world’s most renowned photojournalists – will take the audience ‘Around the World in 80 Images’. And Steve Bloom - famed documenter of the apartheid years in South Africa, and award-winning travel and wildlife photographer – will present the story of his photographic journey ‘From 1970’s South Africa to the world today’.

Several other talks and workshops will be going on throughout the weekend that will cover many areas of photography, including wildlife, aerial, adventure, fine art, advertising, editorial, travel and reportage, how to make money from photography, working with light, shooting on HD video, the art of editing images and the story of travel photography.
