Photokina is the most eagerly anticipated event in the calendar for photography professionals and enthusiasts.

This year I’m privileged to be a guest of Canon, hosting its social media live-streams and interviewing some of the best-known photographers, photojournalists and filmmakers in the world.

It’s also an opportunity to get some hands-on time with amazing new kit — such as the EOS R camera — before it officially launches.

Expedition photographer Ulla Lohmann is a new hero of mine, and it was a thrill to interview her — and her 3-month old son — about her work. A force of Mother Nature, Ulla descends into volcanoes for a living and explores untrodden environments to uncover the stories that reveal the beating heart of our planet.
