Leicester, September 2016 – The innovative Sun-Sniper Rotaball range introduces five new features to its camera straps, making Sun-Sniper the leading brand for camera straps in terms of security and comfort when shooting on-the-go.

Under the slogan “Less swinging – better spinning” Sun-Sniper promotes its new Rotaball connector which is the key feature of the new strap range. The connector ensures the camera can be turned freely in any situation while attached safely to the camera’s tripod socket.

These are all five new features at a glance:-

-Rotaball Connector – Allows camera to be turned freely

-Shock Absorber – Absorbs the camera’s weight to protect throat, neck and back

-Blokker -  Prevents the connector from being detached for more security

-Pitt – Keeps the shoulder pad in place

-Limiter – Restricts the camera from swinging too far back

Photographic business Tetenal Ltd is the exclusive UK & Ireland distributor for Sun-Sniper as well as Sunbounce and is equipping Irish photographic retailers with the new Sun-Sniper Rotaball straps. Dublin-based businesses One Photographic and Conns Cameras are the first suppliers to add the improved Sun-Sniper straps into their product range. Both companies invite customers into their show room to test products first-hand. For anyone based outside Dublin, their websites offer more information and the option to order online:

LOXLEY COLOUR INTRODUCE THE COOLEST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY EVENT OF THE YEAR

You might have been to other wedding photography conferences - but you've never seen anything quite like this!

May we introduce, the NineDots Gathering in London.

We invite you to join us at this exclusive two-day ‘anti-conference’ at Bounce, Farringdon on Wednesday 16th and Thursday 17th November 2016.

But you’ll have to be quick to secure your place. There’s only a limited number of tickets left for the NineDots Gathering, with spots being snapped up fast

A different type of gathering

-The NineDots Gathering isn’t your ‘typical annual conference’.

-The brainchild of four friends who also happen to be award-winning wedding photographers, the NineDots Gathering is an amazing and supportive learning experience for other wedding photographers.

-The fun-filled two-day event brings together 150 like-minded wedding photographers to learn, get inspired and socialise together.

It’s bigger than your ‘average’ workshop, but smaller than your traditional conference. Held at the home of ping pong, with food and drink provided and plenty of time to meet other photographers, presenters and even play a game or two, it’s anything but your run-of-the-mill conference.  The exciting NineDots Gathering sees successful wedding photography talents from around the world come together and share their passion over the course of two action-packed days.  Then, it finishes with an after-party of epic proportions.

Two inspiring and exhilarating days - With a host of presenters, photography experts and sponsors all lined-up to attend, the NineDots Gathering promises to be a one of a kind event. The presenters will leave you inspired and invigorated through a combination of keynote talks and practical sessions while on-hand experts will help alleviate stress points in your business.  Sponsors will be bringing along some of the greatest products available on the market right now for you to try and the NineDots after-party will remind you photographers are the coolest people on the planet.

It’s the end-of-season event not to be missed!

INSPIRATIONAL ARTS PHOTOGRAPHY AWARD 2016 ANNOUNCED

This was the seventh year of the Inspirational Arts Photography Award  

We had two goals in mind when we established the Award in 2009.   We wanted to give something back to the students who supported us over the years with their custom.  We also wanted to make our small exhibition space available to photography, as it was so under-represented in art galleries in Ireland at that time.    Seven years later we are delighted that the award is held in such high esteem, and we hope it continues to be of some help to graduates in photography in the early stages of their careers.

The Award is open to all final year students on the BA Photography programmes at Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT), Griffith College Dublin (GCD) and the Institute of Art, Design and Technology (IADT).   Entry is automatic and is based on the students' work presented in the Graduate Exhibition of each of the participating colleges.  We invited a leading member of the photography community in Ireland to judge the students’ work at each of the graduate exhibitions and to select one student from each college to go forward to the final stage.

The three short-listed candidates were invited to show their work in a group exhibition at Inspirational Arts running through September and October. The winner of the award was announced at the opening of the exhibition on Culture Night last Friday, the 16th September.   The exhibition runs for 4 weeks.

The winner Hannah Tiernan (GCD) received €500 in cash as a contribution to their next photographic project, plus a printing voucher for an additional €500.   The runners-up, Cale Perrin (IADT) and Raimonda Milasiene (DIT) each received printing vouches for €250.

CALUMET PHOTOGRAPHIC SUPPORT & HOST CHARITY EXHIBITION

Air ambulance teams captured in Photography Exhibition

Movements of the life-saving charity London’s Air Ambulance have been captured and unveiled as part of a photography exhibition. Members of the public, who have captured the advanced trauma team in helicopter and rapid response cars en route to critically injured people in London, have been submitting their photos in a social media competition.  More than 150 people entered and 12 shots were selected, which have been printed in a 2017 calendar with proceeds going to the charity.

The exhibition and competition has been supported by Calumet Photographic, which hosted the event at its Drummond Street store in London. Jon Warner, Managing Director of Calumet Photographic, which has its head office in Tilbrook, Milton Keynes, as well as an online shop and eight stores across the country, said: “Supporting charities is hugely important to us as a company and we cannot think of a better organisation to support than London’s Air Ambulance. We know the work they do is extremely important and the team have helped to save tens of thousands of lives over the years. The calendar showcases some truly amazing talent, as well as reminding people of what an important job the medical crew do.”

Calumet Photographic is a leading photography equipment retailer supporting amateurs and professionals.  It also provides rentals, runs workshops, offers a student membership scheme, and has studio spaces available to hire for shoots.

Calendars are priced at 8.50GBP and can be bought at http://londonsairambulance.co.uk/support-us/communityfundraising/calendar-2017

NEW APPOINTMENT: PHOTO-INDUSTRY GURU TO HEAD NEW-LOOK BOWENS SALES TEAM

Aurelius, the pan-European investment company that recently acquired the Calumet Photographic and Bowens International group, has announced the appointment of UK photo industry guru Terry Caws to head the Bowens sales team

Caws, who has spent over 35 years in the imaging industry, will take over as sales director at the Bowens HQ in Colchester, Essex, with immediate effect.  After beginning his career as an apprentice at a photo retail store, Caws went on to buy the business before later selling it and moving to Agfa to work with leading photographers and prolabs. He then moved to Calumet and worked in distribution management and later Interfit Photographic, before launching his own commercial consultancy.

He said: “I have worked with Bowens inventory for many years as a distributor – so I am very familiar with the products. The photokina launch of groundbreaking Generation X lines, under the umbrella of the highly proactive and forward-thinking Aurelius management, makes this a very exciting time for this legacy lighting company and a signature moment for me.”  He added: “Bowens enjoys a loyal following with photographers across the globe and the brand has never been better placed to grow in all its markets. I am thrilled to be heading the sales operation as we begin the roll-out for Generation X and successive cutting edge products from our exceptional R&D team in coming months.”

Eugene Ciemnyjewski, Bowens’ general manager said: “There is no doubt that Terry has ‘guru’ status in this industry with his peerless 35-year record of exemplary service and commitment across all key commercial disciplines. We are delighted to have him on board heading our sales function at such a significant moment in the company’s history.”

BELFAST EXPOSED PHOTOGRAPHY GALLERY: WELCOME TO BELFAST MARTIN PARR

Dates - 14 October – 23 December 2016

Belfast Exposed is delighted to present this newly commissioned body of work by world renowned photographer, Martin Parr.

Since the Good Friday Agreement in 1998, Northern Ireland has witnessed a dramatic economic resurgence. The tourism industry has flourished, bringing large-scale investment and unprecedented numbers of overseas visitors to the city. In recent years the tourist industry has been predominantly shaped by two key historical events; the legacy of the Titanic, the ill-fated ship that was built in the Belfast docks and the ‘Troubles’, a 40 year period of violent conflict whose resonances can still be keenly felt throughout Northern Ireland.

In 2012, the new Titanic Belfast Centre opened its doors, attracting 800,000 visitors in its first year.  This staggering flow of tourists to the city has been propelled by the recent upsurge in cruise liners now docking into Belfast. Many of these boats let loose over 3000 tourists a day and often there are as many as three boats a week. Elsewhere in the city, more grass roots industries have developed with the rise of ‘Troubles Tours’ taking in some of the key locations and political murals from the bloody days of the conflict.  Belfast Exposed have commissioned Martin Parr to make a new documentary project on Tourism in Belfast.

Artist Biography - Martin Parr is one of the best-known documentary photographers of his generation. With over 90 books of his own published, and another 30 edited by Parr, his photographic legacy is already established.

Parr also acts as a curator and editor. He has curated two photography festivals, Arles in 2004 and Brighton Biennial in 2010. More recently Parr curated the Barbican exhibition, Strange and Familiar. Parr has been a member of the Magnum agency since 1994 and is currently the organisation's president. In 2013 Parr was appointed the visiting Professor of photography at the University of Ulster. Parr’s work has been collected by many of the major museums, including the Tate, the Pompidou Centre and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Acknowledgements - This exhibition was made possible by the generous support of Arts Council Northern Ireland and Belfast City Council. Belfast Exposed would also like to thank Titanic Belfast and Rayanne House for their assistance in this project.
