Clive Booth presents "My Decade with Canon," an inspirational seminar featuring samples of his work. Tickets are available for both 10am and 2pm. Please arrive 15 minutes before the start time.
After 20 years as a graphic designer, Clive decided to follow his lifelong ambition of becoming a photographer and filmmaker. He’s now in constant demand for his atmospheric fashion, beauty and portrait imagery.
Location: Derbyshire & London, UK
Specialist areas: Fashion, beauty and portrait
Preferred Canon camera and lenses: EOS 5D Mark IV, EOS R and EF 85mm f/1.4L and RF 50mm f/1.2L USM and Canon EOS C200.
Not only is Clive Booth a celebrated photographer and filmmaker but he’s also a practising graphic designer, a profession he started long before his love affair with photography ever began. “I like to think of myself as a designer with a camera,” he says. “In the early nineties, I had shot stills and films for the Royal Geographic Society in the High Arctic, among polar bears and icebergs. I also worked as a cameraman for BBC TV, and in particular Blue Peter, but I never went professional; it was simply down to a lack of confidence.
Today, Clive’s unique style, along with constant experimentation with new technologies and techniques, has attracted numerous international clients, including fashion brands such as House of Holland, Hackett London, Louis Vuitton, H&M and beauty products such as House of Amouage, Shu Uemura, MAC Cosmetics and L’Oreal. He also works for such corporate giants as Asus, Intel, Fiat, Ernst and Young and Aston Martin.
He is also hugely passionate about the art of photography and filmmaking, and his deep level of understanding, along with his keenness to always be at the forefront of technological change and advancing processes and equipment, has meant that he has been one of the first in Europe to shoot stills and films using the EOS 5D Mark II, EOS C300, EOS C300 Mark II, EOS C500 in 4K, EOS 5D Mark III, EOS-1D X Mark II, EOS 5DS, EOS 5DS R, and EOS 5D Mark IV. More recently he was the first in the world to shoot with a preproduction Cinema EOS C700. His study and love of fine art print-making has led him to be chosen to be the first in Europe to use the imagePROGRAF Pro-1000 and Pro-2000.
