Visions special events

An Evening With Peter Scoones

Last year we introduced a special "An Audience With "

event after the main conference closed on the saturday evening. The larger than life personality Constantionos Petrinos gave a wonderful and humorous account of the trials and tribulations of getting his first book "Realm of the Pygmy Seahorse" from concept to reality. This year we are delighted to offer an evening with Peter Scoones. Peter is undoubtedly one of the most artistic of underwater photographers.

His stellar career has included BBC Natural History classics ReefWatch, Sea Trek, Land of the Tiger, Life in the Freezer, Great White Shark and numerous Wildlife on One specials. Peter was also the man behind the lens for much of the footage screened on the groundbreaking Blue Planet series.

Peter is also co founder, with Colin Doeg, of BSoUP, a much published author of underwater photographer articles and the developer of some of the most specialised underwater camera equipment in the world. Peter is a superb presenter and extremely generous with his advice. This is a wonderful opportunity to be captivated by one of the worlds very best underwater image makers. The event will be held at the Holland Club at Imperial College and the entrance fee will include a glass of wine.

Entrance is by pre-paid ticket only.

Evening Dinner with the speakers

At previous Visions conferences there has been a private dinner for speakers and their partners and the Optics crew. For the first time we're offering places at the meal to all delegates. This takes place on the saturday after Peter Scoones' evening presentation. Seating is strictly limited - one reason that the event has had to be kept private in the past. Now that we have been able to organise more space approximately 35 - 40 places will be available. The restaurant is Italian and can cater for vegetarians. We've organised a set price to include starter, main course, desert, coffee and a bottle of wine between two. There's a cash bar for any extra drinks. Please go along with our non smoking request.

If you really want to make a full weekend at "Visions in the Sea" think very seriously about sharing the evening with us and the presenters.

Attendence is by ticket only and we regret that we will have to enforce this rule rigidly! So if you want to come along, tick the box and get your booking form in NOW. Strictly first come, first served.

In just six years, Visions has become the premier conference in Europe for underwater photographers keen to learn how to improve their own work while mixing and talking with other enthusiasts from as far afield as Scandinavia, Italy and Greece. Be there!
