Jack Perks

Born and bred in Nottingham Jack is primarily a freelance underwater & wildlife cameraman with a deep passion for the natural world. He’s particularly interest is in the less liked species such as reptiles, amphibians and fish but does occasionally pay attention to furry and feathery things. Starting out learning photography from 16 he eventually went to university in Falmouth earning a degree in BA (Hons) Marine & Natural History Photography spending most of his days rockpooling and enjoying the local pubs.

Paul Sanders

I’ve always had a need to prove myself, to push myself to the limits and to succeed. For me, success was embodied by attaining a senior role at a national newspaper, which I achieved when, in 2002, I was approached by The Times, by 2004 I was The Picture Editor.

Amy Bateman

I am a creative photographer who specialises in capturing people, places and artisan products on camera. I love what I do and have a reputation for fully immersing myself into every commission, ensuring that my clients – you – receive stunning high-quality imagery.

Nigel Danson

At some time in life crossroads are presented to you or thrust upon you. I really believe that true happiness is about following your passion. In 2017 that big change came for me and I decided that I wanted to experience the environment I love so much more – the great outdoors. My adventure as a full time landscape photographer began.

Q&A hosted by TogCast

In the final part of the day, we bring all 4 of our speakers together for a panel discussion, hosted by TogCast.

You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions, perhaps inspired by our speakers’ earlier talks.

Audience participation is a must!
