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.
