    Dave Barker was a member of Talk Photography for nearly 10 years, and was a prominent member for most of those.
    A very warm, friendly and enthusiastic member, he spent the largest portion of his time on TP welcoming and helping others.

    I'm sure all visitors to this site will join us in thanking Dave for his unwavering support and being a large part of our community.
    Our thoughts are with his family and friends at such a difficult time.

    Hi there. I wonder if Anybody knows when all the programmes, including the Canon programme, will be out? I usually only go for 1 day and don't want to book the wrong day. ( I searched to see if anybody had started this thread and nothing came up.)

    Usually they are released sometime in February/March. Often waiting means discount codes are released by sponsors around the same time. It looks like the details of some of the photography shows own talks are yet to be released too.

    I went on their website and the only info there was a single page about it to encourage people to come. I will have another look - contact links I tried didn't seem to offer an email. Thanks

    The talks schedule isn't usually announced until about a month out. And even then is subject to change.

    Does anyone know of any discount codes please? I've seen/used them in the past but not noticed anything this year.

    Edit ............. Ignore me. I've found a few different ones after a quick google or even opening up a photo mag. Brings it down by £3. (y)

    @Geoff Moore - Yes they are - Just google "photography show 2017 discount code" and you'll see a few different ones. For example Nikon have "NIKTPS17". They usually seem to end "17" but if you see one for a previous year you could always try changing 15 or 16 to 17

    Tim, It gives you £3 entry per person for daily tickets. I think you may find better bargains elsewhere on the internet for £3 off a hotel room though LOL.

    Also it's worth doing a search from previous year's threads on TP for alternatives to the £12 parking fee at the NEC.

    I'm debating whether to go this year or not. I usually do and don't get me wrong, it is worth it. I just don't know if every year is too much.

    I usually spend a couple of hours there looking around the stalls, negotiate my annual paper discount then leave.

    I got my trade pass, just wondered if there was a discount for hotels nearby. I've booked the premier inn now, so only a 30min walk. Think I'm going to take my massive holdall with me though in case I get trigger happy with the credit card.

    Last year I parked in the rail station carpark I can't remember the exact figure but I know it was a lot cheaper, and it's a short walk over the bridge to the exhibition hall.

    I had an email from Canon the other day offering a competition to win pairs of free tickets, or register before the 15th March 2017 to receive £3 off using the discount code CATPS17.

    I think I did a search for money off codes last year and found one from NEC (monitors) which took a few £'s off.

    I don't think I'll be going. I only went last year to see the Nikon D500. :)

    Free parking at Marston Green station - train for nominal fee takes 2 min to NEC. Don't feed the greedy car parks.

    P.S. Anyone got their tickets yet?

    Yes, for some reason you see people laden with camera equipment trudging round a trade show. And if there's a hint of a female model it's like a charging herd of elephants.

    If you're visiting the Photography Show on Saturday or Sunday ... might be worth a visit to Birmingham Comic Con which is also on the same weekend. Lots of Cosplayers like having their photo taken if you like to do that kind of thing.

    I remember years ago (back in the early 90s) when Jessops used to run the NEC photo show one year it was the same weekend as Clothes Show Live and you could borrow lenses (basically a refundable CC scan for the cost of the lens) from people like Sigma to test out for the day at the fashion shows.

    Yes they are free stand talks. Usually it's a case of getting to them early enough to get a seat or room to stand. Nikons stand was open on all sides last year whilst canons was like an enclosed theatre.
