St Andrews Photography Festival

St-Andrews-Photography-Festival-logo_Mag-e1465483408706Scotland has played an influential role in the field of photography from the earliest days. In the early 1840s photography came here through a close friendship between Fox Talbot and Sir David Brewster, then the principal of the United Colleges (now the University of St Andrews). Several notable St Andreans took up this new thing called ‘photography’ with great passion. Works by many of these early practitioners, most notably David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson sit in archives around the world.

The St Andrews Photography Festival aims to celebrate a long line of Scottish photographers, historic and contemporary. The festival will put some of the photographic highlights of the University of St Andrews Library Special Collections on show as well as creating a showcase for contemporary Scottish photographers.

Approximately 20 non-traditional venues across town will be have their wall space taken over for this 6-week festival from August 1 to September 11.

Additionally there will be events, talks, historic process demonstrations, workshops and much more.

You can find the full list of participating venues and photographers here: http://bit.ly/StAndPhotoFest2016

Professional golfers play alongside celebrity amateur golfers, with famous names such as Michael Phelps, Hugh Grant, Michael Douglas, Samuel L Jackson, Sir Bobby Charlton and Boris Becker taking to the fairways – which well known faces will grace the Old Course this year?

An annual favourite with both locals and visitors to St Andrews, entrance to the championship is free on the first three days.

St Andrews during championship week is a very special place. The dazzling fireworks display held before the Gala Dinner on the Saturday is a real highlight and always attracts a large crowd.
