One of the most exciting interviews due to take place is with the award-winning photographer, Christy Lee Rogers. Her awards include the Open Award at the Sony World Photography Awards in 2019. Rogers is also a featured photographer on the 2021 Lavazza calendar. Rogers will be discussing her unique style and approach to fine art photography. 

On the other hand, if you're interested in developing your own personal style, you may want to take a look at the talk by veteran photographer Michael Freeman, whose use of shadows has proved inspirational to many photographers. As important as good lighting is, how you use utilize shadows can help add an extra layer of extra depth – a skill that Freeman has mastered. In his talk, Freeman will identify ten different kind of shadows, discussing what they can offer to your work. 

Another talk that could prove extremely useful is from specialist dancer and photographer, Maria Falconer. As a creative that works as a performer and as a photographer, Falconer has a unique perspective. Her experience both in front and behind the camera offers keen insights on how to improve your connections with your subjects.
