The Bright Festival of Photography

OCTOBER 8th-10th 2021!!!

Dubbed ‘probably the best photography festival in the world’ BFOP is the place to be if you love people, photography, having a good time and never taking life too seriously. Hosted in Bright and surrounded by some of the best photographic opportunities in Victoria this festival gives you the opportunity to explore new genres of photography, capture incredible images under the instruction of our world-class photography team and meet over 400 like-minded people all here to have an incredible weekend. This year we’ll run more than 100 workshops that cover every genre of photography from landscape to themed equine cosplay*. Our social events will be bigger and better than ever and we even have our own bar. And of course we’ll have all the major camera brands represented in one way or another** BFOP’s founders Nick Fletcher and Matt Krumins ambitions regularly exceed their capabilities, with the festival underpinned by a sense of barely controlled chaos. We can’t promise your bus will turn up on time but we can guarantee you the best weekend of your life*** … buckle up because BFOP 2021 is BACK TO BRIGHT! *Workshops may not include themed equine cosplay **Excluding Canon. Are they still a major brand? ***No we can’t.


With COVID being an ass in 2020 BFOP was pushed into the digital age with over 50 workshops presented live via Zoom. We had over 500 people attend the digital festival and it was an epic success both in learning new skills and laughing but also bringing people together at a time when we all needed  a pick-me-up. If you missed the festival this year or simply want to relive a workshop you can jump on the link below to replay nearly all the workshops from the BFOP Digital 2020 event!
