Sean Tucker will appear at The Photography & Video Show in Birmingham, England, on 16 March to discuss his book The Meaning in the Making, an exploration of the importance of creativity. The book draws on Tucker’s career, as well as insights from his psychology degree. 

Rather than specializing in one photographic genre, Tucker produces work across the spectrum, taking in portraiture, still-life, product photography and street photography.

Niall is the editor of Digital Camera Magazine, and has been shooting on interchangeable lens cameras for over 20 years, and on various point-and-shoot models for years before that. 

Working alongside professional photographers for many years as a jobbing journalist gave Niall the curiosity to also start working on the other side of the lens. These days his favored shooting subjects include wildlife, travel and street photography, and he also enjoys dabbling with studio still life. 

On the site you will see him writing photographer profiles, asking questions for Q&As and interviews, reporting on the latest and most noteworthy photography competitions, and sharing his knowledge on website building.
