What a super time at The Photography Show in Birmingham this week.
Tens of thousands of visitors, hundreds of cracking cameras and dozens of the world’s most inspirational photographers.
I feel incredibly fortunate to have worked on The Photography Show since it began in 2014. This year, as well as hosting the show’s pop-up TV channel, I was thrilled to be asked to deliver some workshops on mobile journalism and mobile content creation – an area I’ve also been involved in for a long time.
In one workshop I covered the basic principles of mobile journalism apps and workflow; in another I set up a mobile-only multi-camera studio, perfect to live stream blogs, podcasts, radio shows, panel discussions and more.
Yet my favourite parts of the show are the fireside chats with photographers; it’s a privilege to be able to speak with industry legends such as David Bailey, Martin Parr, Sebastiao Salgado and – above – leading fashion and beauty photographer and all-round inspiring person, Lindsay Adler.

Earlier this week I got hands-on with Nokia’s new flagship smartphone, the Nokia Lumia 925, at the global launch event in London.
Aside from the all-new aluminium body the big stories with the Nokia Lumia 925 are the PureView camera’s insane low-light capabilities and the integrated Nokia Smart Camera software, both of which we had plenty of opportunities to try out at the event:
As you can see, it’s a cracking handset with a very interesting camera that I’d love to take on a holiday with me to try out in more detail.
I was delighted to be working once again with Pat Doyle, who produced the O2 Guru TV Fast Forward film from the Gadget Show Live.

I’m delighted to be back with the Gadget Show Live once again this week at the NEC in Birmingham.

If you’ve come here looking for the notes for my show then click here for a full run down of the smartphone photography and filmmaking apps and accessories I showcased.
Of course, smartphone creativity is something I’ve written about and presented on a lot over the last 12 months, and I’m very excited to have the chance to talk about it here at the Gadget Show Live, as well as to show off my filming accessories workflow.
As if all that wasn’t enough, I’ve also been filming my new future tech trends show, Fast Forward, for O2 Guru TV – more on that coming very soon…
