A Unique Midsummer Event: A Journey into Time-Lapse Photography with Neil Lucas

Grays of Westminster and the Nikon Owner London Group present A Unique Midsummer Event A Journey into Time-Lapse Photography with Neil Lucas


We are delighted to announce a unique presentation by Neil Lucas, producer for the acclaimed BBC ‘Life’ Series, to be held in central London, at Fitzroy House, 37 Fitzroy Street, London, W1T 6DX on Saturday, June 19th, 2010 from 2.00 p.m. until 5.30 p.m.

For a number of years, Grays of Westminster has presented and hosted a number of comprehensive photographic events and seminars, covering a wide variety of subject matter including Mike Maloney’s recent historic House of Lords Photographic Event, an evening with best-selling author Graham Hancock, a Christmas event with photographer and celebrated mountaineer, Jo Gambi, another event featuring Simon Marsden, wildlife and natural history weekend workshops with Heather Angel, as well as training sessions with Simon Stafford.

Neil Lucas
will take us on a journey from his earliest photographic passions to his discovery of time-lapse techniques and how they developed throughout his career, leading to the first real time-lapse programme ‘The Private Life of Plants’. He will describe the problems and successes and demonstrate the techniques, culminating to his recent work for the BBC series ‘Life’ and beyond.

Neil Lucas worked for the BBC Natural History Unit as a producer for over 20 years. During that time he worked on many internationally acclaimed and award-winning productions, including Sir David Attenborough’s The Trials of Life, The Private Life of Plants, The Life of Mammals and Planet Earth. In the outstanding ‘Life’ series he produced two of the most technically challenging programmes, and many of his programmes have been nominated for BAFTAs and EMMYs. Neil is now working as a freelance film director and photographer specialising in challenging and technical shoots, using the same filming and photographic techniques he has mastered throughout his career.
