Date for the diary: Travel Photographer of the Year Exhibition

On Friday the Royal Geographical Society gallery opened its doors to the travel photographer of the year exhibition, displaying over 200 stunning images from all around the world. Situated near to Hyde Park, the exhibition is free to enter and runs till 18th August with two evenings in conversation with renowned photographers, starting with wildlife photographer Andy Rouse on Wednesday evening (17th July). It’s the perfect opportunity to get some sage advice from the bigwigs of photography, browse some great work and maybe even get some nibbles – all for free (nibbles not guaranteed).

And here’s a sneak preview of what you have to look forward to:
