19.30 to 20.30 - Keynote Talk ALL
Tom Jenkins, Photographer and filmmaker, Guardian Media Group is our keynote speaker for the evening.
Tom describes himself as a photographer who specialises in sport, rather than a sports photographer. For much of his career he has worked for The Guardian and The Observer, during which time he has covered a huge variety of events all over the world, including 6 football World Cups and 5 summer Olympics. In his talk he aims to rid people of any preconceptions about sports photographers being "a bunch of "snappers" who purely exist behind monster lenses". He also hopes to show that the principles that guide him through his work can be applied to any version of photography, be it landscape, portraiture, or whatever,
