SPEAKER - National Geographic Masterclasses

2020 was the second year of the National Geographic Traveller Masterclasses held in London. I was actually a participant in the first year. This year I was truly honoured to be asked to speak (twice) and to be part of a panel discussion. It was a great day with in excess of 200 attendees, and speakers all across the travel photography spectrum. I spoke about the place of street photography within travel photography and shared some of my best tips for Ninja style shooting (!) as well as composition.

FEATURE - The Phoblographer

Listed as one of ten street photographers under 10K on Instagram on The Phoblographer. “Based in the UK, Polly is an extremely talented street photographer. Her followers can often look forward to her photographic memories as she continues to travel as far and wide as possible. Her work has one key component – variety. Multiple compositions, an incredible understanding of light and colors that make you want to touch the ‘motherf*cking rainbow’.”

SPEAKER - Snap Photography Festival 2019

I was one of the keynote speakers at SNAP Photography Festival 2019. I gave a 90 minute talk: “Stop Looking, Start Seeing - The Science of Street Photography” to around 100 wedding industry professionals. And also led a mini workshop in Weston-super-Mare. Here is a link to an interview and below are some photos of me in action… (main photo credits: Angela Ward Brown, Kate Jackson, Emma Warley and some love from IG stories)
