Our guest speaker this afternoon is Glyn Dewis, with his presentation “The Power of Personal Projects”.
NOTE: SPECIAL TIME @ 3:00 PM
In this presentation UK Photographer, Educator and Author Glyn Dewis will talk about the importance of personal projects and how they are the key to developing as a Photographer. Glyn will also go through his current 39-45 Portraits Project where he (until lockdown) was touring the UK photographing surviving World War 2 Veterans; an entirely self-funded project that has gained National News Coverage but with the sole intention of providing Veterans and their families with classic, timeless portraits. Glyn will also go through some Veterans stories and also the photography and lighting he uses to take these Veteran Portraits on location and will finish the presentation with some examples of retouching techniques he regularly turns to.
