One day, one camera, lots of pictures: Bristol Photomarathon

PM11 Logo_250w

For all you lovelies in and around the Bristol area, or perhaps if you fancy a day out taking pictures in one of my favourite cities, a one-day photomarathon is being organised as part of the Bristol Festival of Photography. On Saturday 5 March you’ll have seven hours and one disposable camera to capture a series of images from a specific list. Running is not compulsory.

I have to say, I rather like the idea of providing everyone with a disposable camera for the day. Not only does it level the playing field, but it gives anyone, whatever her or his photographic experience, an opportunity to have a go at photography. And there’s no running involved.

Whether or not you manage to capture all the images on your list, your pictures will still be exhibited online, and the organisers, Second Look, are trying to arrange a giant projector display, too. That sounds rather groovy. If you book your place in advance, it’ll cost £7; turn up on the day and it’s £10.

Interested? More details are available here. And remember, this is Bristol. In March. Take your waterproofs.
