Jean-Pierre Ronco presenter at Bright Festival of Photography

JEAN-PIERRE RONCO



JP is  Bright’s tame Frenchman. He is most famous for his cycling photography, where his coverage of the Tour de France is a regular feature in Australia’s media including RIDE (Australia’s premier cycling magazine). We love him because he is the archetypical working photographers photographer, shooting for the local paper, Bright Brewery, the Council, the Spring Festival, and a thousand other local organisations. Basically, if you see a photo in Bright, odds are JP took it. He is a huge supporter of the festival (and a BFOP original).

This year he’ll be leading workshops on food photography and taking a guided photo-workshop down the gorge. We can’t guarantee you’ll understand everything he says (we certainly don’t!) but you will have huge fun with his Franglais and you will love hanging out with this warm, good natured human being learning some new skills. Now say after us “mais, je ne comprends pas”….
