Welcome to Cambridge Photography Weekender: The great outdoors.
After the success of Cambridge Photography Week, we’re delighted to have our first Cambridge Photography Weekender on 9th – 11th April. When we’ve all been locked down for most of the last 12 months, we should cherish the greatness of photography outdoors.
Now that lockdown is being gradually lifted and the days are getting longer, it’s time to get ready. So, we are dedicating our first Cambridge Photography Weekender to photography and the great outdoors.
