We have a fantastic line up of nine speakers over the two days including Arctic Photographer of the Year 2013, Roy Mangersnes, renowned wildlife photographer, Andy Rouse, plus a strong cast of nature and conservation photographers made up of Niall Benvie, Terry Whittaker, Ian Cameron, Jodie Randall, Fergus Gill, Charlie Phillips and Matt Doggett. A huge variety of topics will be discussed, from Matt Doggett’s extraodinary experiences in an underwater world to Roy Mangersnes’ stunning Svalbard encounters.
There will be lunchtime workshops from Niall Benvie, Mark Hamblin and Terry Whittaker on subjects ranging from remote photography and camera traps to macro photography and creating composites and “old prints” in Lightroom and Photoshop. A number of other lunchtime activities will also be on offer and there’s the chance to mingle with friends and like-minded photography enthusiasts.
Trade stands will again be available throughout the weekend and this year we’re joined by market leaders, Canon and Epson; photographic retailer, JRS Photo Hardware; outdoor specialist, Mountain Leisure; photo tour operators Ron McCombe Wildlife Photography and Northshots; plus the John Muir Trust and Scotland Outdoors Magazine.
The SNPF photo competition also returns, with a session in Northshots’ osprey hide up for grabs on each day. This specially built hide offers a unique opportunity to photograph one of Scotland’s most charismatic raptors on natural perches in front of a clean background, with both feeding and flight shots possible. The overall winning image from each day will also be displayed on the main auditorium screen. Competition entries close on 1 September so do make sure you have your tickets and send us your images if you’d like to be in with a chance of winning.
It all promises to be a great weekend of inspiring presentations and stunning images from some of the best photographers at work today, and we hope your members may be able to join us this year.
