Roger Severn, WAPF President and WCC member




There is a growing anxiety with some members of the public about being photographed in public especially if children are involved. Whilst there are no laws prohibiting street photography including people in public, the photographer may be challenged and placed in an embarrassing and potentially dangerous situation. Roger's talk will clarify the distinction between private and public places, the Surveillance Act 1988, and police powers to issue move on notices. Short case study videos will supplement the talk.

Jon Miller



Jon worked in the entertainment industry for 20+ years shooting entertainers from the music, television and movie industries. Fifteen years ago he retired as a fulltime photographer and now shoots small commercial projects for select clients and his own surrealistic artwork which he displays at art festivals around the world. 

Jon will talk about lighting for portraits and the various styles you can use to render certain moods.  The photographer must consider whether the image is to be a business portrait, an image of a person in their usual environment wanting something that is different from the normal portrait or art portraiture. He will describe the tools and equipment needed and how to get the subject to relax and get into the moment.

Portrait – Environmental - Relationships

Judge: Cyrus Roussilhes


A portrait executed in the subject’s usual environment which shows an obvious
relationship between people. Their usual environment can be in their home or
workplace, and typically illuminates the subjects’ life and surroundings. Done well,
the portrait should give us further insight into the life or character of the subjects,
Animal portraits will not be accepted.
