This year we are pleased to announce
Tom Ang as the guest speaker for the LPMGs annual seminar.
Tom Ang is considered the 'photographers photographer' because he doesn't limit himself to any one form of photography but seems to excel in all forms. He is a television presenter with shows which include 'A Digital Picture of Britain’, and 'Britain in Pictures'. He is the author of many photography books including 'How to Photograph Absolutely Everything' and 'The Digital Photographers Handbook'.
Mr Ang will be talking about his 30 year career in photography, how he got started through to what he's doing today and most importantly - why he does it : the pictures. He'll discuss writing books and making tv programmes and how he manages to stay so productive. He'll also show and talk about his favourite images and we'll have an opportunity to see some of his images that haven't been seen before. There will also be an hour for a question and answer session so you can pick the brain of the man who is probably one of the most successful photographers today.
Mr Ang will be selling his books and has kindly offered to autograph his books - whether you buy one on the day or bring one of your own - for a donation to be given to the charity he supports 'Practical Action'. The
LPMG will be making a donation to the same charity with profits made from the day.
Chris Sargent Landscape Photography Chris will be starting the day off with a talk on 'Aspects of Landscape Photography' Chris is a keen amatuer photographer who has been a member of the LPMG since the beginning in 2006. Chris won LPMGs PoTY in 2008 and his work appears in photography magazines regularly. Chris's photography, whether it be macro, portrait, architecture, street or any other type he sets his eye to is outstanding but his love lies in landscape photography, take a look at his landscape shots here:
