The French have the Sa­lon in the fall. The Ger­mans queue up for the Pho­tok­ina fest ev­ery other year. And New York­ers make an an­nual pil­grim­age to the Pho­toPlus Expo. Now the Brits have their own, brand new, show to get ex­cited about. Tak­ing place from March 1-4, The Pho­tog­ra­phy Show prom­ises to be an ex­hi­bi­tion un­like any we have ever seen in these isles. It is not just about the big stands from all the top man­u­fac­tur­ers, this will be a cel­e­bra­tion of pho­tog­ra­phy in all its forms.

I am par­tic­u­larly ex­cited about talks from my hero pho­tog­ra­phers – like Joe McNally, Steve McCurry, and Michael Free­man. And there will be plenty to take pic­tures of with your Nikon, too, from the spe­cial In­ter­na­tional Gar­den Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year in­door flower gar­den, to BMX stunt rid­ers and beau­ti­ful cat­walk mod­els.

Nikon will be there, show­ing their full range of lenses and cam­eras, so you can try out all those monster tele­pho­tos and get your hands on the Df (and per­haps even see the new D4s). They will have a full pro­gramme of talks from N-Photo pro con­trib­u­tors such as John Wright, Kate Hopewell-Smith, Mark Pain and Jeremy Walker. There’s so much to cram in, you might want to go for more than one day! Come and find me and the rest of N-Photo team if you do make it to Birm­ing­ham on one of the four days – we’d love to hear what you think of this ex­cit­ing event.
