If you are looking to submit your pictures for the Mentor Me Programme it couldn't be easier.

All you need to do is select 20 images for submission, resize them to 2000 pixels on the longest side and name them 01-20.jpg then send them to phil@swpp.co.uk (They can be split into several emails if required, emails to be no larger than 10MB)

They will then get passed on to the mentoring team who will write a written report in due course.

Trevor and Faye Yerbury - Speakers’ Corner

We don’t believe there’s ever been a speaker line-up quite like this before at any photo convention - anywhere.

At the pioneering seven day-long 2010 gathering our broad church of professional and aspirational photographer visitors will have a truly enormous choice of seminars.

Of course it would be impossible to produce personal profiles for every single speaker, so we’ve drawn a dozen of these key names out of the hat to give you an exclusive ‘cross-section’ profile snapshot. 

The business was established in 1864. I was established a little after that but nevertheless I confess to have been a pro here for more than forty years now. I’ve had several one man exhibitions over the years and we’ve been fortunate enough to win numerous awards. In addition there have been many TV and radio appearances and I was lucky enough to be presented to The Queen - before I photographed her.
