The Photography Show & The Video Show has welcomed thousands of photographers and filmmakers to the UK Birmingham NEC for six years and was originally postponed from its traditional March dates due to the outbreak of the pandemic. Its new virtual festival format will enable professionals and enthusiasts to come together to see the latest kit, tech and tutorials from the world of filmmaking and photography, all for free.
