If you love nature and wildlife photography, then the Scottish Nature Photography Festival (SNPF) will be right up your street
The event is even more relevant in this, the Year of Natural Scotland.Â It has a new look and an exciting programme, including talks from a superb line-up of speakers.
From 2013, The Wild MediaÂ Company, a not-for-profit organisation headed by award-winning photographers Peter Cairns and Mark Hamblin, will coordinate the event as part of its commitment to promoting visual imagery as a vital tool in nurturing a wider appreciation of the natural world.
The event is aimed at anyone with an interest in wildlife â€“ whether they take photographs or not. With talks by photographers at the top of their game, this two day festival is sure to inspire. Speakers this year include Marcus McAdam, Mark Hamblin, Bertie Gregory, Nick Cobbing, Edwin Kats and Estonia based Sven Zacek. There will be portfolio displays from several other top photographers plus workshops, trade stands and the chance to mingle with like-minded photographers and enthusiasts. Members of the Scotland Outdoors team will be there, as we recognise the importance of stunning wildlife photography. Do come and say hello if you are able to attend.
SNPF is located in Scottish Natural Heritage’s Battleby Centre, just outside Perth, a stunning and fitting location for a nature photography event.
The festival runs for two days on the 14 and 15 September, with the programme repeating on each day. More details can be found on the SNPF website at www.wildmedia.org/SNPF or head straight to the online ticket shop.
