Visa picks up the pace

Day Two of the Visa pour l’Image pro week and things are heating up with photographers booking time with agencies, workshops in the Canon Space and exhibiting photographers sharing their stories. It’s all going on at Visa!

The Agency hall, on the second floor of Perpignan's Palais des Congrès, was a hive of activity today as photographers booked time for reviews and interviews with agency representatives.

The impact Visa pour l’Image has on the world of photojournalism can never be underestimated. Providing a necessary and vital focal point for photographers and agencies to connect, the second day of the pro week saw workshops and training programmes kick off and gather pace.

Ziv Koren workshops with the EOS 5D Mark IV

Canon Ambassador Ziv Koren’s low light workshops have been a popular feature of Canon’s presence at Visa in recent times. But this year’s events promise to be extra special, as they’ll provide a first opportunity to put the new EOS 5D Mark IV through its impressive paces, before it even goes on sale. As Ulla Lohman, one of Canon’s Explorers, has said: “This camera really is another step up for shooting at high ISO”.

Canon Ambassador Ziv Koren started the first of his low-light workshops today, with attendees being among the first users to get their hands on the new EOS 5D Mark IV.

Ziv will talk about working in low light and show examples of his own work, after which Canon Europe’s Professional Imaging Technical Support Programme Manager, Mike Burnhill, will give an introduction to the new camera. Participants will then be briefed on an assignment and (here’s the best bit) issued with the overnight loan of an EOS 5D Mark IV to execute it. The following morning, Ziv will review the results and offer further guidance.

The workshops will be running until Friday, September 2 in the Canon Space, on the ground floor at the Palais des Congrès, starting at 4pm with follow-up sessions at 10am the next day. Admission is free for accredited photographers. Places are very limited, however, so pre-booking at the Canon registration desk is strongly recommended for anyone who wants to take advantage of this unique opportunity.

Interviews and opinion

Throughout the day, exhibiting photographers were kept very busy giving interviews to the press at their exhibitions while visitors were arriving en masse to soak up the summer sun and take in some incredible work. Despite the stepped up security this year, the mood was positive and the bookshop was doing a brisk trade.

From workshops to forums, Visa pour l'Image is really picking up the pace this week!

The second floor of Perpignan’s Palais des Congrès is home to over twenty of the biggest photo agencies, who this year have seen a huge influx of photographers looking to have their work seen and assessed. Returning this year were the NOOR and MYOP agencies, joining other agencies including AFP, Agence VU', The Associated Press, Getty Images, Polaris and Sipa Press.

Transmission pour l’Image, one of Visa’s most successful and exclusive forums, has been running since Monday with its mission statement of “transmission”, from one generation of photojournalists to the next. Far from being a course on “how to take pictures” it is instead a chance for photographers and picture editors to meet and talk about their work and their choices.
