The Photography Show and The Video Show are the most exciting events in the UK's photographic calendar, and now we're only 32 days away from stepping through the hallowed doors of Birmingham's NEC into a world of pure camera-induced bliss. Running from Saturday 14 March to Tuesday 17 March, The Photography Show and The Video Show (opens in new tab) are both jam-packed with amazing photography and videography-focused content.

But, with so many exciting talks, exhibitions and demos to look forward to, which ones should you mark down in your diary?

One of our favorite aspects of The Photography Show is being able to wander around the stands and interact with the photography products being displayed. All the top camera brands will be at The Photography Show, including Canon, Nikon, Sony, DJI, Fujifilm, Hasselblad, Olympus, Panasonic, Sigma, and more. 

However, that isn't all The Photography Show and The Video Show has to offer. There will also be plenty of talks and demos from a wide range of photographers and videographers. The Super Stage (opens in new tab) will be hosting prolific photographers Chase Jarvis (opens in new tab), Susan Meiselas, Ross Halfin, Juno Calypso and Brooke Shaden. 

If you're a keen videographer, then you'll also want to check out cinematographer and YouTuber Gavin Free's slot on Sunday as well. Due to their popularity, Super Stage talks require extra tickets (opens in new tab) on top of your admission priced at just £12 per talk. However, your regular ticket will grant you access to all other talks and demos, including the Social Stage, Photo Live, Video Live and more. 

Excitingly, there are four new attractions for The Photography Show and The Video Show 2020. Shutter Street will feature sessions and live demos across a range of topics across photography and video. Meanwhile, the Drone Zone x Action Arena will have ramps for stunt bikers, parkour and more incorporated into the Drone Zone. The Studio will have talks offering insight into producing engaging video content, while the Analogue Spotlight will feature demonstrations of fun analogue photography techniques.

And lastly, we couldn't talk about The Photography Show without mentioning the Masterclasses. While ordinary photography workshops can cost hundreds of pounds, the Masterclasses cost just £10 per session. The Photography Beginners' Masterclass (opens in new tab) includes the fundamentals of camera settings and theory, a introduction to flash, editing techniques for beginners and composition techniques. Check out the full list of Masterclasses here (opens in new tab).

No matter whether you're looking to try out the latest gear, you want to improve your skills at a Masterclass, or you're excited to hear your favorite photographer give a talk, don't forget to buy your ticket for The Photography Show and The Video Show (opens in new tab) at Birmingham's NEC from 14-17 March.
