Photography Workshop - Focus on the Next Level
September 20-22nd 2019 - Bradford and Beyond

Are you looking for a new challenge? Would you like to take your Photography to a new level and
get your work seen by a wider audience? Do you sometimes feel constrained by producing work
for club competitions?

Five members of the Focus Group examine a number of ways that could change the way you approach
and plan your photography, and share their experiences of how to take your photography to
“The Next Level”.

Iain McGowan FRPS will show a variety of ways of presenting a themed set of prints, all avoiding
the use of Photoshop! From the importance of getting it right in camera to printing direct from your
memory card. Examples will include joiners and collages, plus other ways of exhibiting your work.

Leigh Preston FRPS will share his thoughts and approach to using picture space, light and shadow,
and how we can relate image design to expression and emotion.

Pete Bamforth ARPS. There comes a time in your photographic life when it is good to break out of
your comfort zone. Pete will talk about possible places to go for ideas and inspiration.

John Bradshaw FRPS is a master of the monochrome world. He will explore monochrome in the
digital age in all it’s manifestations including infra-red and digital alternative printing.

Janey Devine FRPS. Bringing mood and atmosphere into a set of images sometimes means
“breaking the rules”. Janey will show a number of techniques to add impact to your photography.

The workshop will be based at the Bradford University Conference Centre - Heaton Mount - where
we have access to a fully equipped spacious lecture room.
The three day workshop will comprise a mix of led discussions, photographic excursions, and 1:1
sessions with members of the Focus Group. The venue is just outside of Bradford. close to Salts
Mill in Saltaire and a number of other interesting locations, all full of photographic potential.
The cost of the workshop is £225 (£250 for non RPS members). This does not include costs for
meals and accommodation which should be booked separately (see below).
