Panasonic is pleased to announce a number of seminars being held this weekend with Hugh Hastings, the former Official Photographer for Chelsea FC. A professional photographer with a career spanning over 40 years, Hugh will be discussing why he swapped his DSLR for the Lumix DMC-GH3 and accompanying lenses.
With a notable photographic career including being the Official Photographer for Chelsea FC for a decade, being the first photojournalist to work with approval behind-the-scenes at a major English football league club, and creating the Official Photographic Archive for Chelsea FC, Hugh has also been involved in corporate promotions working as a Director of Nigel Mansell’s sports marketing consultancy, as well as writing a young adult novel named ‘High Tide’. Today, Hugh lives by the sea in Cornwall and specialises in Coastal Lifestyles photography, as well as encompassing location shoots, property, portrait work, lifestyle and industrial clients in addition to media work.
With a broad spectrum of experience, Hugh looks forward to covering the following topics in the seminars;
- Why Hugh changed from a DSLR to Lumix G
- Hugh’s photography career
- Hugh’s current work, shot with the Lumix GH2/GH3
- Working with Chelsea Football Club
