The Photography Show 2017

The Photography Show 2017 runs from Saturday 18th March until Tuesday 21st

We’ve got lots going on this year so this page will help you plan your visit to make sure you get the most from your trip. In addition to our usual Touch and Try areas that will let you get your hands on all of our latest products including the new GFX 50S Medium Format mirrorless camera, there will be live talks on the Fujifilm stand (D61) every hour. There are plenty of professional photographers that shoot with X and GFX doing talks on the official TPS stages and theatres, and every day we’ll be running workshops where you will be able to borrow a camera you’ve got your eye on and a professional photographer will help you get the most from it.

We hope to see you there!



Over the four days of the show, eight different photographers will share their experiences using Fujifilm kit. Street, wedding, portrait, landscape and wildlife will all be covered. Come to the Fujifilm stage

It’s not about the camera
“It’s not about the camera, it’s about the connection you have with your subject. However, the camera you choose forms a key part of that relationship and having the right camera can change your life and your work. My relationship with technology and the technical side of photography was bad to say the least. I almost stopped taking pictures but rediscovering the joy of creating images that please me with the X-T2, X-Pro2 and the new GFX and intuitive controls meant that the cameras ceased being a barrier and became a channel for my expression and view of the world. This is not just a landscape talk – its about being inspired by the world around you, no matter what you shoot, and finding a camera that becomes a subconcious extension of your imagination.”

Connecting with your landscape
What do we love about photography? Is it the finished image in all its technical detail, or the way it leads us to connect to the world around us?
