Campkins Cameras organises first Cambridge Photography Week
Campkins Cameras has created the first Cambridge Photography Week, designed to help photographers of all abilities to raise their game.
The Cambridge camera shop - a fixture in the city since the 1800s and based on King’s Parade since 1953 - has run the Cambridge Photography Show for the last two years, but amid the pandemic has adapted to organised a week of online content.
Taking place from November 16-22, a series of live and recorded videos will be posted at cambridgephotographyweek.com and on the week’s Facebook page, featuring conversations with experts, demonstrations, presentations from local photographers and Anglia Ruskin University students and staff, plus the opportunity to take advantage of deals.
Owner Owen Howell told the Cambridge Independent: “2020 has of course been a challenging time for everyone in Cambridge. We’ve been part of the Cambridge high street for so long that we’re deeply committed to service our customers whatever the circumstances.
“We’ve reacted to Covid by moving more of our efforts online and focusing on providing valuable content, support and offers to our customers.
“Cambridge Photography Week was a natural evolution of the Cambridge Photography Show. It’s all online this year but we expect it to become part of the Cambridge calendar each year and introduce in-person events whenever it’s safe to do so.”
Canon, Sigma, Sony, Olympus and Fuji have signed up as sponsors and partners for the week and will be helping to provide the content, which will cover subjects including macro skills, wildlife photography, cityscapes, portraits, landscapes and turning professional.
There will also be a chance to win a Canon EOS M6 II Digital Camera with a 15-45mm, IS STM lens.
You can sign up for free at cambridgephotographyweek.com , where the video content will also be available on demand.
