Oxford Photography Festival

I had a great day yesterday at the Oxford photographic festival. Cam back inspired, especially after listening to the great landscape photographer Charlie Waite. Tremendous portraits in the Mathematics faculty (wonderful building!) and beautiful small black and whites in St. John’s College by Finnish photographer Pentti Sammallahti. Pentii got a 20 YEAR grant from the Finnish government to do his work – can you imagine that in the UK?

We stumbled on the Festival office at the end of the day located in a cafe. It was one small table with a not very enthusiastic man sat behind it. This is the first Festival and, if repeated, more visibility would be helpful. That said, if you can I would thoroughly recommend looking at some of the work there.

About Gerry Walden

I am a stock photographer with far more years of experience than I would care to mention. Located in Southampton (UK) I am sandwiched between two national parks and my home town is a major seaport. I shoot mostly people related images, and travel when I can. I am resident photographer at a major concert venue in the town which means I get to shoot a variety of musicians.
