In fact two of the speakers at the event are be Shutter Hub members: Jenny Lewis, who we recently featured as her work forms part of the current Portrait Salon exhibition, and Melanie King of the London Alternative Photography Collective, who at the time of writing will be in Goa attempting a world-record breaking cyanotype.
