Yes, it was a fantastic experience being at the photography show over the past few days, taking inspiration from other photographers talks and seeing what the future has to hold in the digital world. For those who haven't been, they have equipment tutorials and more importantly speakers from around the world coming to talk about their journey to photography. Helen Sloan ( Photographer for Game of Thrones) and how her photography job keeps her on her toes for 120 days straight running on adrenaline at the end with the rest of the cast was one of the key talks I saw.
Alec Soth From Here to There talk was extremely insightful, he discussed many projects including Sleeping by the Mississippi and Broken Manual. He also interacted with the audience with the interactive 'spinning wheel' while encouraging young photographers to go out and photograph beyond your comfort zone. Humble, well spoken photographer I would recommend looking at his work. There is a lot of it out there!
