Wednesday 23 May 2018


The Talk

A fully illustrated presentation covering an number of topics, including the State of the Art in the 21st Century; location, light and timing; composition, inspiration and mood; shoot preparation, meteorology (British weather and all it can do for your photography) and image processing and interpretation.​

The Speaker

Benjamin Graham is an internationally published freelance photographer, college photography tutor and occasional filmmaker based in the south of England, who seems to spend most of his life on the road and on location in a campervan.

In October of 2017 he was named the UK Landscape Photographer of the Year, winning first prize in the ‘Take a View’ competition. In addition eight of his images, across three categories, were shortlisted for Outdoor Photographer of the Year competition 2016. He is dedicated to celebrating the beauty of Great Britain’s coast, countryside and architecture through his photography, examples of which regularly appear in major newspapers, magazines and online editorial galleries. The Times, The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph, The Independent, The Observer, The Mail, The Express and The Mirror all feature his work and he have had images published in  numerous countries, including the US, Italy, France, Ireland, Spain, Denmark, Finland, Poland, Russia, Australia and China. Benjamin has been creatively motivated by photography for over forty years, but his interest became obsessive around 2010. He began practicing semi-professionally in 2013 and his body of commissioned and published material has gradually evolved since then.
