Focus-on Convention Speaker - Jorgen Brandt

It is always a pleasure to report on the successes of our members, especially those from overseas. Jorgen Brandt from Denmark, who has been invited back to speak at the 2010 Convention, was recently awarded his country's highest qualification, supreme qualified master photo-dk (shortened to sqm photodk).

"The sqm photo-dk is bestowed upon photographers in recognition of their outstanding and original creative and technical work within a chosen genre. The work is expected to be individual and be expressive of a genuinely personal style with a touch of originality in the approach to the genre chosen."

Rhapsody in Red is Jorgen's interpretation of his visual and emotional insight into his world of photographic fantasy and expressive art. Visit:

Jorgen has 2 programmes at the 2010 Convention:

Composing your images the intuitive way (Superclass)
The Birth of a Fellow Panel in Fine Art (Masterclass)

Please see his speakers page for more information:
