Blue skies in Camden Town. Before the tourist crush. Early. A second cup of coffee. A stroll along the canal. Stare at the locks. Into the stables. Some places crawl under the skin. Camden Town tattoos.
Last night I attended a seminar by wildlife photographer Steve Bloom. The seminar is the second in a series hosted by What Digital Camera and the School of Photographic Imaging in celebration of Amateur Photographer's 125th anniversary.
Steve Bloom showed some of his amazing wildlife and people photographs and shared many stories behind the images. It was a fascinating glimpse into the career of this celebrated photographer.
The top five hints and tips I took away from the seminar are:
Experiment and be unconventional;
The best zoom lens is a pair of legs;
Research your destination thoroughly before departure;
61 members of the public will win a once in a lifetime opportunity to have their eyes immortalised by the world renowned and London based photographer Jillian Edelstein (known for her portraits of Amy Winehouse, Simon Pegg, Woody Allen, Nelson Mandela and many others). The event will be taking place during the first week of December at a flagship mobile phone store in London to celebrate the launch of a new handset.
