25.-27. October 2019

Enjoy Lünen

The International Nature Photography Festival is coming up soon, and for the 27th time the town on the river Lippe will turn into the centre for nature photographers from all over the world. As always, there will be a diverse lecture programme by national and international photographers covering the broad range of what nature photography today has to offer.

To meet our ambition of international exchange, there will be simultaneous interpreting of all the lectures during the festival and the possibility to listen to them in either German or English via headphones.

On the large photo market roughly 80 well-known manufacturers and experts in the field of photography in general and specialists in nature photography in particular present the latest in technology and provide advice. Come along and try out, shop and talk with experts of the trade.

On the show stage of the photo market, there will be a varied programme of lecture and product presentations throughout the day. Companies like Olympus, Canon, Nikon, Rollei or Leica among others present their latest products.

Lectures on travels to Spain, Africa, the Artic and Antarctica or the North Pole are part of the programme as well as nuts-and-bolts lectures on colour management, tripod techniques and flashes.

So, join us in our happy anticipation of 27th edition of the GDT International Nature Photography Festival!
