He will also give a slide show talk on image usage (what magazines/publishers want and are looking for in a shot. The workshop is aimed at people who want to move up to a 35mm digital SLR type camera and who want to produce images of a professional entry level. A maximum of 10 people per workshop. Each participant can bring one item of glass (max shoe box dimensions) which Simon will photograph and supply an image for publicity purposes.

“The photographic image of a work of art reaches a much wider audience than the physical piece itself. The relationship between the artist, the photographer, and their respective media is therefore a crucial one; doubly so when the artefact is formed from glass. The problems inherent in this most challenging of materials are many, the precise balance between reflected and transmitted light to name one.
Simon Bruntnell has during his career to date, developed into the specialist in this field bar none. The quality of his images is the result of an ability to work with the artist in developing an understanding of and approach to each object that has resulted in images that have been reproduced and deservedly appreciated worldwide.
His reputation has been established by word of mouth to the point where he is the simply the glass artist`s photographer of choice”.
