Seminar and Exhibition time - Gecko Advertising Festival

Those who know me, know I have a love for Italy and spend as much time as a can chilling out in the Ligurian Hills, and I was delighted to be invited to present a 3 day seminar this summer in the wonderful medieval village of Apricale.

The Apricale Commune are hosting a photographic advertising festival . The festival is to be called the Gecko festival, which ties in with the Lucertola (lizzard) association that the village has. Apricale has been a mecca for italian artists for years and houses many talented artists and exhibitions and I'm honoured to be able to present the seminar.

The seminar will be hosted over a 3 day period 5th, 6th and 7th June and will cover in detail the subject of CGI car photography. I'm hoping to make it as hands on as possible and look forward to presenting it. My presentation is the only english speaking one of the festival, but I'll have to brush up on my italian just in case.

For more information on the festival contact Susanna Perachino or call her on +39 347 628 6890.

Here's the exert about my seminar.

Carl Lyttle

Recipient of many high profile industry awards and at the forefront of digital and CGI photographic image making, London based Carl Lyttle first fell in love with photography in his native Belfast.
After graduating at Poole College of Art and Design, he assisted the renowned advertising photographer Christopher Joyce.
Working mainly with automotive clients, like Nissan, Mercedes, Mitsubishi, Landrover and Lexus, he also has many other high profile global campaigns under his belt, such as Barclays, BAT and Microsoft.
His work in digital imaging has now moved into the field of high-end, innovative CGI imaging. This complements his automotive and landscape skills, and in 2007 Carl was a co founder of the ground-breaking CGI house “this little fish”.

In addition to all this I have been asked to host an exhibition in the castello in the heart of the village, and I'll provide all the info on that as the exhibition curation takes shape.
