Tom Stoddart – “Every Picture Tells A Story”

Come and listen to one of the worlds most respected photojournalists talk about his 49 years in the industry. This will be an exciting and fascinating insight into a career that began when Fleet Street was still at its height, through his coverage of many of the worlds’ major wars, disasters and political events through to his current work much closer to home in the North East.

Buy tickets HERE


About Tom
Tom Stoddart began his photographic career on a local newspaper in his native North-East of England. In 1978 he moved to London to work as a staff photographer in Fleet Street and later freelanced for publications such as the Sunday Times and Time Magazine.

During a long and varied career, he has witnessed such international events as the war in Lebanon, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the election of President Nelson Mandela, the bloody siege of Sarajevo, the wars against Saddam Hussein in Iraq.

In 1997 Tony Blair gave Stoddart exclusive behind the scenes access to his election campaign as the Labour Party swept to victory after 18 years of Conservative government in the United Kingdom.

Over the years Tom has worked with charities and NGO’s such as Medecins Sans Frontieres, Oxfam, Christian Aid, Care International and Sightsavers. His extensive work on the catastrophic AIDS pandemic blighting Africa has been widely published and exhibited.

His photography has been honoured with awards from World Press Photo, Visa pour l’image, Pictures Of The Year and the Eddie Adams Workshop. In 2006 he was awarded an Honorary Fellowship by the Royal Photographic Society.

In 2012 his ‘Perspectives’ retrospective outdoor exhibition was displayed at London’s South Bank and attracted 225,000 visitors.

Now established as one of the worlds most respected photojournalists, Stoddart is represented by, and works closely with Getty Reportage, to produce powerful photo-essays on the serious world issues of our time.

6th October, 15:00 – Sean Tucker – “In Between Tech and Story”

https_cdn.evbuc.comimages445574171187505666371original

Sean gives a frank telling of his own journey with photography, taking an especially deep dive into the point where his focus switched from learning techniques and obsessing over gear, to being driven to find better stories to tell. If you’ve spent hours watching YouTube tutorials, and thousands of pounds on new gear, but you’re still feeling stuck and frustrated, this might be the shift in focus you need to take your photography on to the next stage of the journey.

Buy tickets HERE


About Sean
Sean is a Photographer and Filmmaker who runs a successful freelance business and a growing online presence where he seeks to inspire like-minded creatives coming up the ladder behind. His YouTube channel, in particular, has grown to over 100k subscribers with over 2.5 million views, and he has an Instagram following of over 50k followers. Sean creates a vibrant and positive community online which talks about how to pursue your dream of making the thing you love to do, the thing you get paid for.

Sean has a strong emphasis in all his video and speaking on being authentic and self-aware in your work, because, in a world of reality TV and vlogging, people are now hyper-aware of artifice, and can smell a sale pitch a mile away. To build an audience now takes honesty, integrity, and vulnerability, and these are my words which Sean not only practices in his own work but preaches to other others as well.

6th October, 16:30 – Lee Glasgow – “If you are easily offended, then please gather round!”

“If you are easily offended, then please gather round!”

With over 400 weddings under his belt, Lee has photographed all kinds of people, from all kinds of backgrounds!

The one thing that has given him confidence, is his honesty with his clients, those within the industry, but above all with himself! In this mad world of political correctness, his talk will be a celebration of frank speaking and learning that your USP is simply a celebration of yourself. Your clients will be attracted to the real you, not the hipster you’re trying to be.

About Lee
In Lee’s Religious Studies school report, it said “Lee has faith, but charity is needed when marking his work!” This quote pretty much sums up his childhood education experience.

From the age of 16, he entered the print trade and after passing his three year apprenticeship in reprographics and origination, he went onto creating artwork for many different applications including magazines, packaging, labels and commercial print. That industry gave him an eye for detail and more importantly an eye for what is commercially required – “What Looks Good”. His images and reputation are his qualifications, Lee has always been humble with his talent, because he believes the moment he thinks he is the finished article, then it’s time to give up!

He loves all the different kinds of personalities he meets through his wedding photography from the barking mad to the painfully shy and even the grumpy ones. If he wasn’t a wedding photographer he would love to be a psychologist as people’s minds are intriguing, but this may be because he is nosey too.

About Michelle
Michelle is a professional photographer, and Flash Centre Ambassador and has been photographing for 13 years , she now specialises in Motorcycle Photography.

She has been on quite a journey over the years, from starting a high street studio back in October 2009, then moving to bigger premises with staff in March 2011 (becoming a finalist in several business awards) and then on to making the leap to close the doors in 2014 to achieve a lifelong dream of living by the sea and make the transition from family portraiture (which she does still photograph for some of her life long clients) to motorcycles.

There have been many highs and lows on her journey, a never-ending learning curve and a lot of knowledge on the importance of having work life balance – even if your work is one of your passions. It’s important to Michelle to get this message across to other photographers and help them to believe in themselves, their work and keep them from losing their creativity.
