The Challenges of Shooting a Music Festival
By Michael Eleftheriades
Friday, 12th February 2021
Start time: 7.00 pm GMT
Duration: 2 hours
Nikon Owner London Group coordinator Michael Eleftheriades invites to the next Nikon Owner evening webinar, ‘The Challenges of Shooting a Music Festival’, taking place on Friday, 12th February 2021. Michael previously gave talks to Nikon Owner subscribers on Japan (16th August 2020) and Astrophotography (2nd October 2020).
In a historic north London suburb, a world class festival of music and culture has taken place every summer since 1993 at a listed local church, with the aim of raising funds for the charities of Toynbee Hall and the North London Hospice. Michael joined the team of volunteers for ‘Proms at St Jude’s’ in 2008 as a way to contribute to the local community. Little did he realise at the time its life changing potential, as he rose from junior to the festival’s lead photographer.
Michael will discuss how a simple act of giving can became a fulfilling part of one’s life, the rewards of working in a team, and the process of self-improvement as a photographer. Alongside, Michael will show the creative and technical approach of capturing classical, jazz, choral and theatre performances. A major component in recording the spirit of the festival is on capturing the public, and Michael will discuss his approach to people photography.

Subscribers’ Comments on Michael’s Previous Talks
“Thanks for perhaps your most triumphant and complete webinar ever presented, loved every minute, I hope most of the audience appreciated how good it was! When one dips in and out of other channels on photographic subjects, you soon realise how lucky Nikon Owners are.” JC
“I think you could gauge that we all thought it was an excellent presentation, all the richer because you made it personal and candidly shared your feelings with us, not at all easy as most people would find it difficult to be so open.” IH
“Thank you for your webinar which I found fascinating and very enjoyable. I have to say that I was touched, moved, and inspired by the level of your personal sharing, and I thought your photographs were amazing.” DB
“Just wanted to say what a fascinating and enjoyable talk I found your 14 days in Japan last Sunday morning. It was quite thought provoking which was enhanced by some superb photos.” KS
The cost of the event for current Nikon Owner subscribers will be £12 per person, payable in advance, and £72 for non-Nikon Owner subscribers.
