What is new at The Photography Show and The Video Show for 2020?

Date: 06/03/2020

The Photography Show and The Video Show - the UK’s largest photography and moving image co-located event – is set to launch a number of new show features when it returns to Birmingham’s NEC this March. Catering for professionals and enthusiasts from all corners of the discipline, the four new zones will cover everything from analogue and film to street style photography.

Drone Zone x Action Arena

The exceptionally popular Drone Zone returns for the show’s seventh edition, upgraded to include an exciting Action Arena. The area will incorporate ramps for flatland BMXers, trials bikers, and parkour giving attendees the opportunity to photograph and film action shots first-hand, with various sessions guided by experts. The Drone Zone x Action Arena will provide aerial flying demos from the likes of top drone manufacturer DJI, practical advice and guidance on the most up-to-date regulations, and sessions on how to get the best results from drone footage and stills in this popular sector of photography and film. In addition, visitors can take in demonstrations on using the latest gimbal technology and action cams, with tips on how to integrate these into their imaging.

Take a walk down Shutter Street

Resembling a real-life boulevard, the brand-new Shutter Street will provide an immersive stage for several sessions on a huge range of topics across photography and video. Within this interactive zone, co-founder of Street Photography International, Craig Reilly, will his share his step-by-step process of capturing street photos, revealing how he composes his shots by making use of available light and spot metering.

During a live shoot, Olympus UK Ambassador, Gavin Hoey will take visitors through his approach to a location portrait shoot, working with the scene and developing ideas. The session will help attendees discover how to capture and create atmosphere by mixing ambient light and small, portable flash. Elsewhere, Jeff Ascough will discuss his street photography and demonstrate what he looks for, how he uses light and composition and how his work blurs the lines between street and pictorial photography.

Attendees can also join Alex and Jane from London Photographic as they share key techniques to help fast track learning. Together, they will cover technical and creative aspects, as well as setting some mini challenges so attendees can take steps towards immediate improvement.

Back to the future at the Analogue Spotlight

For those that prefer creating images the old-fashioned way, The Photography Show and The Video Show will launch a dedicated Analogue Spotlight area for the first time in 2020. The area will feature a mixture of product demonstrations and educational content to inspire innovative uses of film photography.

With eight 15-minute demonstrations every day, leading brands - including Analogue Wonderland, Ilford, Solarcan, Silverpan Film Lab and Intrepid Camera - will showcase their products to analogue enthusiasts. Thingyfy will also deliver a demo on how to shoot analogue style videos and photos using their pinhole series on digital camera bodies that create a hybrid effect.

In addition, the area will play host to two 30-minute educational sessions every day, offering tips and hints on all things analogue and film. Speakers already confirmed include Marina Lloopis of If We Film, Vincent of On Film Only and Bill Manning of Studio C-41. Sarah Emma Smith of Going North Productions will explain the differences between digital and film, why film can improve your photography and ways in which you can adapt your shooting when using film. Elsewhere, Tim Goldsmith from the Disabled Photographers Society will briefly outline the history of stereo photography and show attendees how they can shoot 3D with little or no extra equipment.

Other exhibitors set to display their products in the Analogue Spotlight include Chroma Camera, pixl-latr, Kosmo Foto, Digitalab and Negative Supply, who is expected to launch a new product around the time of the show.

Hamish Gill, founder of 35mmc and pixl-latr commented: “The analogue photography industry - and community that supports it - has seen strong growth for a few years now, and whilst analogue companies have always had a presence at The Photography Show, it's fantastic to be part of the effort in bringing a significantly increased contingent to the exhibition.

“Analogue is no longer seen as a dying art, in fact, it is now more readily seen as an entirely viable alternative with a wealth of creative opportunities for photographers to explore. The new Analogue Spotlight feature at the show will draw attention to what's different and interesting about analogue photography in 2020, and I am really excited to be a part of it!“

Learn from the experts at The Studio

Further bolstering the free-to-attend educational programme, the launch of The Studio for 2020 will add another platform for expert speakers to share insight into producing engaging content, storytelling and creating projects using different techniques across various genres of moving image.

Using visuals from his films to illustrate, award-winning wedding filmmaker and photographer Philip White will share how he creates beautiful cinematic films with just one camera and one lens. He will focus on human elements such as story, pace, depth and composition rather than technology. Otherwise known as ‘The Drone Lass’, BBC camera operator and filmmaker Carys Kaiser will reveal what is inside her kit bag, what influences her decisions to take a big camera or a small one, and tips on how to just get creative with the kit you have.

Director of Product and Technology at Global Distribution, Richard Warburton, will demystify the technology and science behind video formats, explaining the industry jargon in an accessible way. His session will help attendees to feel confident in undertaking video projects, knowing how best to use the tech available to achieve amazing results.

Elsewhere, David Lund will share his easy steps to transform drone footage, delving into ideas of composition, dynamic space and time, to show visitors how to get smooth, high quality footage. In a session on workflow, Asian wedding specialist and YouTuber, Mandy Dhillon, will share the tips that she's learned to help make life easier, covering kit preparation, backing up, file storage and how to keep an editing project neat and tidy.

Jonny Sullens, Head of Events at Future, which runs the two events, said: “It’s important that our offering each year is fresh and showcases the best of the best in the industry. By having our finger on the pulse, as well as listening to feedback from our exhibitors and visitors, we can ensure that we are the one-stop-shop for everything photography and film. It’s incredibly exciting to launch four new areas of the show for 2020 and we’re proud that our exhibitors share this excitement; we really can’t wait to reveal the Action Arena, the Analogue Spotlight, The Studio and Shutter Street to the 32,000 + visitors we look forward to welcoming in March.”
