Aimed at video, broadcast and still imaging professionals, visitors will experience Canon’s complete workflow solution from image capture to output.

Held for the second time in 2010, last year’s show attracted over 2800 professionals. Now in its third year, Canon Pro Solutions 2011 has been designed to be the largest and most comprehensive consumer focused exhibition of Canon’s Imaging products. Its aim is to educate and inspire visitors and to demonstrate how Canon technology and that of compatible products can be used by professionals in their digital workflow to generate increased revenue and business.

The convergence of stills and video technology will continue to be an extremely important element of the show and visitors will be able to gain a greater understanding of how to develop and evolve their businesses in a rapidly changing market. The Pro Solutions Show will centre around an extensive display of Canon products and visitors will also have the opportunity to see live demonstrations of professional workflow solutions. This will be complemented by a comprehensive schedule of free seminars given by Canon Ambassadors and renowned photographers and filmmakers from a spectrum of genres.

Once again there will be a wide range of companies at the show who provide tailored products, services and solutions to professionals, and visitors will be able to try and buy at the show.

Susie Donaldson, Consumer Marketing Director, Canon UK and Ireland said “We are delighted that the Pro Solutions show will return again in 2011. The feedback from visitors and exhibitors from last years show was very positive.

Biological Photography Museum

I was having a wander through the museum at Biological Photography and Imaging yesterday and I came across some very strange items { well to me they were } and I am not talking about Dr David Fox the museum curator.

Odd things in that museum, even the Kilner jar. Dr Tom Hartman said that it was unique in the fact that they stop making these jars back during the war when the factory was blow up. There is a lot to look at and photograph in this museum more then enough to hold anyone’s attention. If you have a interest in old bones, fish heads, small hedgehogs and strange looking mussels then drop a line to thomas.hartman@nottingham.ac.uk if you would like to know more on the course we run at Nottingham University, MSc Biological Photography and Imaging then contact david.mcmahon@nottingham.ac.uk

Deadly is Beautiful

The very first time I saw a jellyfish was back in 1970 on my aunties black and white television, I was truly amazed by these slow and graceful creatures  but deadly to the touch. It was not until 1990 that I came across one in real life, I had to hold myself back from reaching out to touch.

Emma Clark, MSc Biological Photography and Imaging, School of Biology, The University of Nottingham.

During Emma’s stay with the MSc, she produced some really nice work. This is one a piece that she produced for her summer project in the Écrins National Park. Below is some of the text along with some images from the book that Emma made on the park.

Écrins National Park

an introduction

One of nine French national parks, Écrins National Park was officially established in 1973 in response to pressure from mountaineers, nature organisations and the French Alpine Club. Divided into sectors which are managed individually by teams of field workers, the park expands over two departments – the Hautes Alpes and Isère – and two regions – the Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur and the Rhône Alpes. French law stipulates that parks are made up of a core and partnership zone. The core zone is a protected and unspoiled area which is subject to special rules, whilst the partnership zone is governed by a charter adopted by the relevant communes. The park is structured around a network of central high peaks, with large glaciers that have carved deep and distinctive valleys in the huge rocky massif.
Cols, landscapes and the position of the hillsides influence the distribution of different species, wildlife movements, human habitation, agriculture and tourism activities. Each valley is unique in terms of geography, culture and human presence. With a core zone of 91 800 ha including 11 300 ha of glaciers, 68 800 ha of summer alpine meadows and 41 422 ha of forest, the national park is an immense haven for alpine flora and fauna, and a challenging playground for explorers and naturalists The wealth of wildlife in Écrins is the result of the extremely varied environmental conditions. Species adapted for mediterranean conditions, such as pine voles and ocellated lizards, live along side survivors from the last Ice Age. Reintroduction programmes have helped bring back iconic mountain mammals to the area, such as chamois and ibex. Some species are only present in summer, but others have adapted to cope with the harsh winter climate; marmots settle into long deep sleeps, black grouse build protective
snow burrows and mountain hares adopt white fur camouflage. The golden eagle has been the subject of regular censuses since 1985 and there are 38 (1999 census) known breeding pairs within the park. Larger birds and other large predators, such as wolves and lynx, are attracted to the diversity of environments and have chosen to return to the park of their own accord. Over 1 800 different plant species have been identified in the national park, a diversity which results from the different vegetation levels (800 to 4 102m). Plant life is evolving as the climate changes, with dramatic declines in species
dating back to the Ice Age, and new species taking over the heaths and rocky ground1.

Lost Treasure

At the MSc Biological Photography and Imaging Steve Galloway is doing a mass tidy up and changing around of rooms, He has created a lighting store were the students will be able to collect the lighting from and return lights to at time of the day. The small studio, which was being used by Luke Saddler to photograph his fish project, has now been reclaimed and is back as the ultraviolet studio. Whilst Steve was removing a shelving unit from the store, behind the unit he found a roll of Ektachrome professional Infrared EIR film, the expiry date was 07/2007, just go to show you how often he tides’ up. I use to love that film but at £8.50 a roll plus processing for 36 exposures, it was expensive, Good job Fuji brought out the IS pro, because Kodak no longer make that film. Still the box is in mint condition with an untouched roll of film within it, that is going into my small museum next to my beloved Nikon F4.
