The Royal Photographic Society held a large weekend event at the studios ‘The Brilliance of Photography’. With a title derived from the 2007 BBC4 series The Genius on Photography and an opening talk by Gerry Badger, the author of the book on the series with the same title, this May 23-24 2009 weekend event brought no less than eight internationally known major photographers and book authors together as speakers.

Organised by the contemporary group, this was aimed as the first of a series of future major events in the RPS photographic calendar. The other speakers were Stephen Gill, John Blakemore, Richard Sadler, Peter Kennard, Bill Jackson and Daniel Meadows and the event was rounded off by Paul Hill MBE.

Testimonial “It was a great weekend and we are receiving emails saying this daily!” – Brian Steptoe Chairman, Royal Photographic Society."
