Registration now open for the The Photography Show & The Video Show’s second virtual festival 

Following a successful online debut in September 2020, The Photography Show & The Video Show team has announced that its second virtual festival, Spring Shoots, will run Saturday and Sunday, 6-7 March 2021. Free registration for the event opened today. 

The free-to-enter event for photographers and videomakers builds on the success of the virtual show that was held in September last year. 

With the likes of Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Fujiflm, Sony, Interfit and Affinity Photo supporting, this is two days not to be missed. As before, visitors will have access to an extensive programme of never-before-seen tutorials and masterclasses; plus product demos showing off the latest kit and techniques, and advice clinics. 

There will be plenty of opportunity to learn new skills, connect with your favorite brands and of course, purchase all the kit and accessories you need for the coming few months at great prices. 

The schedule offers a range of talks aimed at all levels of expertise. Speakers so far include food photographers Donna Crous and Bea Lubas, YouTuber and landscape photographer Nigel Danson, self-portrait artist Alma Rosaz, lighting and portrait master Tommy Reynolds, smartphone video producer Caroline Scott and the winner of the Sony World Photography Awards Open Award 2019, Christy Lee Rogers.

More on the Super Stage keynote speakers and big-brand ambassadors are due to announced next week.

Pro Conference

In addition to the main programme, the March festival will see the first online edition of the Pro Conference, a firm favorite with professionals at the live event. Sessions will run throughout the day on Sunday March 7 focusing on core business skills, and diversifying services to adapt to the changing market - for both photographers and those moving into video. There will be a nominal charge for entry this Pro Conference and for Super Stage keynote addresses - but all other talks will be free.

The Photography Show & The Video Show is scheduled to return to its traditional annual live event format at the NEC in Birmingham, UK, on 18-21 September 2021. All entry tickets for the postponed March 2020 show have been transferred to these dates.
