Foto-Buzz is an online photography club run by Andrew James, a professional photographer, tutor, and journalist with a huge experience taking images, writing about the technical and creative aspects of photography, and mentoring photographers on specialist trips in the UK and expeditions and across the world.
Foto-Buzz offers its members access to a vast library of over 400 articles and videos ready to dip into, ranging from advice on in-camera shooting techniques to detailed post-processing workflows. New articles are published each month.
Members also get a themed monthly mission to provide some inspiration and get their creativity flowing. We then come together on a video chat on Zoom for friendly and supportive discussion around the entries, all of which are submitted anonymously.
A members chat lounge offers the chance to get to know each other, ask questions and debate all matters of topics, while occasional social meets-ups provide the opportunity to get together face to face for a day’s photography.
Andrew is well-placed to offer advice on all aspects of photography. He is the former editor-in-chief of Practical Photography and Digital Photo – two of the best-known photography magazines in the UK – and has written a monthly Photo Answers section for Digital Camera Magazine for over 10 years. His decades of magazine work means he has experience of a wide range of shooting styles and techniques, from landscapes to portraits, and wildlife to studio. He is known for being creative with light and composition across all genres of photography.
Andrew specialises in the natural world and his portfolio includes a showcase of evocative and immersive wildlife photography that capture impactful encounters with wild animals in their natural habitats. An image taken amidst incredibly tough conditions during a blizzard in Antarctica, saw him announced a category winner in one of the world’s most prestigious photography competitions, Travel Photographer of the Year.
Foto-Buzz is part of Whisper & Wild Ltd, a tour operator that offers clients the opportunity to pursue their interests and passions in wild and remote corners of the world.
