This week in Blipfoto - Want to be a fashion photographer?
14th September 2012
Want to be a fashion photographer?
Have you ever wanted to emulate the great Bill Cunningham? Or take a leaf from Rankin's portfolio? Well, now, thanks to our friends at Calumet and Canon, you can.
We have a catwalk-side photography pass to give a away for London Fashion weekend. And it's not too late to stake your claim for it.
As well as the pass, Canon will be on hand to allow the winner to arm themselves with some of their top equipment for the task at hand, while Calumet will give you tips on how to take advantage of your prime spot.
We're giving this unique photography prize as part of our Photo of the Week Challenge with Calumet. So to win, all you have to do is enter a photo to the Calumet Group based on the current theme - 'Street Style'.
As usual, just add your relevant Blips (past and present) to the Calumet Group to win this one-off prize, a print of your photo and to be named Photo of the Week.
(If you haven't already, join the Calumet Group and upload as usual - selecting the Calumet group option at the end of the process. To add existing Blips, just use the Group Settings icon at the bottom of your entry.)
The theme changes every Monday, so keep an eye on the Blog for the new challenge.
We will select a winner over the weekend. To attend the show, you must be able to be in London on Friday 21 September.
That's not all... We've got another great offer from Calumet. They have now announced their new seminar program and, to celebrate, would like to offer all Blippers an exclusive 15% discount on all seminars in the UK until the end of the year (2012).
So, take a look at what's on offer - there's some great workshops from "Artistic Nudes" to "Architecture" available across the UK. Blippers just need to enter the voucher code of "Blipfoto" when booking online and the discount will be deducted.
Today we say 'bye' and a big thanks to Paul the work experience guy. He's been busy doing some great work with us for the last couple of weeks. But he's also written a wee blog post on his time at Blip Central - which we've not seen yet. We'll share it with you all soon (provided, of course, he says nice things about us). In the meantime, enjoy this week's Staff Picks, while he takes us out for a few goodbye refreshments!
Now that's a successful fishing trip! An otter battles with a giant salmon in the River Don, Aberdeen. An amazing photo of the victor towing his prize to the shore.
On Tuesday 9/11 there were many beautiful photos shared on Blipfoto to remember a day that we will never forget. This one is perhaps the most poignant.
Ooaft! That one's going to hurt. Not sure that's enjoyment or pain etched on this bodyboarders face? But it's certainly a brilliant moment captured.
A classic image from the ballet. Such elegance and poise. Even in her fingers!
We loved this portrait taken in Bali - the clarity of her features and the expression in her eyes.
