ON THE STAGES
The PHOTOZONE Stage
THIS SECTION OF THE SHOW will be chokka with underwater photo- and videographers keen to share their expertise and help boost your skills and find you the equipment and accessories you need.
Enjoy the displayed images and help to judge the finalists in the British Society of Underwater Photographers’ 2019 Prints Competition, then dip into the rolling programme of instructive presentations curated by star exponent Saeed Rashid, who will also be giving his own talk.
We’re pleased to welcome Adam Hanlon, owner of popular underwater imaging community website Wetpixel. He has been taking pictures under water for more than 30 years, both to reflect his fascination with the life of the oceans, and to highlight the challenges they face.
Also preparing their Powerpoint playlists are competitive underwater photographer Nick More, who concentrates on marine-life portraiture and is known for images that incorporate motion blur, and photo-journalist Will Appleyard, a regular contributor to DIVER and author of two UK diving books. When he’s not under water he’s either climbing a mountain or paragliding over one.
Paul ‘Duxy’ Duxfield is also on hand to help – he started as a Red Sea dive-guide, moved into photo retail and journalism and now hosts workshop trips.
