The Festival of Photography and World Travel follows on from the hugely successful Travel Photographer of the Year exhibition, which was co-sponsored by Oman Air, and which drew large crowds to the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) in London earlier this year. It offers three days of photography and travel events featuring a fantastic line-up of speakers from the worlds of photography, film and TV, travel and exploration.
