BIRDIE – A new photography conference from White October Events!

One-day photography conference, BIRDIE, is happening at Shoreditch Village Hall in London on Saturday 13 September 2014.

Our sister company, White October Events, has added a brand new event to their lineup, to join the hugely successful jQuery UK and All Your Base conferences!

BIRDIE is a new conference for photography enthusiasts. The idea came from a casual chat between Garrett and the events team, who agreed there was a gap for a photography event that focussed on the stories and inspiration behind photographers’ work rather than expensive kit and complicated technique.

Fast-forward a few months, and BIRDIE was born: a one-day conference bringing together inspiring photographers and speakers for talks on topics ranging from the history of the art-form to personal experiences getting started; from photographing stars (both celestial and celebrity) to protecting your rights and your images in the digital age. The event chair is London-based photographer and creative director, Dan Rubin, co-founder of The Photographic Journal and one of Instagram’s earliest beta testers!

Speakers include:

  • Author and writer for popular quiz show, QI, Stevyn Colgan
  • Live music photographer Katja Ogrin, who’s photographed everyone from Beyonce to Metallica
  • Astrophotographer Conor MacNeill
  • Chris Wild, Oxford-based founder and curator of Retronaut
  • Agatha A. Nitecka, one of only a handful of film still photographers
  • And more…view the full lineup
