All I would like to hilight this talk that is open to BPPA members and non-members. First up is Alan. Alan Crowhurst is an award-winning horseracing photographer contracted to Getty Images. His life has always involved racing, his grand father was a racecourse bookmaker. In this interview Alan talks about growing up in Brighton, taking up photography, his passion for his profession, what it takes to get an award-winning ‘Crowhurst’ shot and his hopes for the future. Following Alan, John Downing's son Bryn Downing will present "Behind the Lens" , a 30 minute film on his father John Downing. After the film a slideshow of John's images alongwith the stories to go with them told by Hazel Thompson . Hazel has known John for 20 years, working with him on his "Legacy" book. If you are unaware of John's work - do a quick google and you will realise his impact on photojournalism as well as being a foundering member of the bppa ... This will be a great evening ... and is FREE!!! https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/assignments-live-alan-crowhurst-followed-by-john-downings-legacy-registration-78086253085
Here is a interesting survey of the state of photojournalism in 2018 . One interesting upward trend seems to be shooting stills and video on the same shoot. Maybe news photojournalists should be thinking more about 4K or even 8K video, so they can take hi rez stills from their video.
