Great event coming this fall! I will conduct a seminar, take part in the masters exhibition and the social evening. Feel free to join us at the beginning of October in London to take a part in this fantastic photography event and workshops.
Originally established by Hasselblad USA in New York five years ago, the ‘Shoot’ event concept is an exciting, informative and inspiring event based on the premise of building a photographic community. In addition to a wide range of free professional photography seminars and informal workshops, the industry’s leading brands will help you learn how to harness and integrate the market’s most advanced photographic tools into your business, offering inspiration and improving both your photography and your bottom line.Hasselblad UK are now bringing the ‘Shoot’ concept to London, labelled as ‘ShootLDN’, following on from not only the original NYC events, but from other ‘Shoot’ events that have also previously been held in Los Angeles, Paris and Amsterdam. ShootLDN is not like most other photographic events. Aimed at top end professional photographers, whilst still being suitable and interesting for all levels of image makers, ShootLDN will be a hive of interactive and hands-on activity. You won’t see table top after table top of boring sales stands, but instead a venue full of live shoots, demonstrations, tutorials and seminars, each designed to inspire, inform and educate, and hosted by some of the industry’s top photographers and leading brands. (View Partners) And what’s more… it’s FREE to attend! WHAT WILL YOU SEE? Free Seminars and Lectures
ShootLDN will be host to a wide range of free photography related seminars and lectures, predominately targeted at professional photographers and pertaining to the business of today’s photographic industry. Learn and be inspired by top industry professionals, from photographers, photo agencies, picture editors, model agencies and fashion houses. (View seminar schedule) Live Shoots
The main hub of ShootLDN will be the countless live shoots and demonstrations, covering a wide range of photographic genres such as fashion, still-life, automotive, portraiture and weddings. With an open plan venue, wander from one live shoot to the next, interacting along the way with lots of hands-on opportunities. Hasselblad Masters Exhibition
ShootLDN will incorporate a gallery of the prestigious Hasselblad Masters competition. Mingle and socialise whilst taking in the images, with opportunities to meet some of the Masters. (Find out more about the Hasselblad Masters) Social Evening – Wednesday 2nd October, 6pm to 10pm
Rub shoulders with other like minded creatives at the ShootLDN Social Evening. Take in the Hasselblad Masters Gallery whilst enjoying a drink or two. Network with photographers, creatives, models and designers in a relaxed and informal environment. WHO SHOULD ATTEND? ShootLDN is ideally aimed at professional photographers, photo assistants, advanced students, and indeed any imaging professionals that would like to learn about the latest cutting edge products and techniques being used in the professional digital image capture market. Even if you aren’t a professional photographer, ShootLDN will still be an exciting, informative and inspiring experience for any level of photographer.
I almost forgot – that I received great video footage from the ShootLND event made by my friends videographers. Just take a look:
