Wander, browse and capture the UK’s best Christmas markets under the tutelage of an expert Panasonic Lumix trainer.

Mulled wine, Bratwurst sausages and unique gift ideas are enough to get anyone in the festive spirit; this winter, Jessops and Panasonic Lumix have partnered up to offer a series of interactive Christmas photography walks.

Christmas markets are at the top of everyone’s to do list around the festive period and the UK offers an abundance to rival even the most traditional European markets. But beyond the gifts, delicious food and festive cheer lies fantastic opportunities to get creative with your camera.

This winter, Panasonic Lumix will lead a series of Christmas market photography tours across the UK including in London, Birmingham and Leeds. The sessions will provide a fantastic opportunity to get hands on with the latest kit including the newly announced Panasonic Lumix G9.

“Our new Lumix G9 is going to take stills photography to whole new level,” says Barney Sykes, Head of Imaging Marketing, Panasonic UK. “For anyone considering upgrading their camera this winter, or for those buying a mirrorless model as a gift, our Christmas market tours are an absolute must to get hands-on and learn more about what this camera is capable of.”

Whether you want to take the perfect action shot of your festive disasters or work on your macro skills to capture the intricate details of the season, Panasonic’s photography specialists will be on hand to help. Throughout the experience, consumers will be guided by expert trainers who will provide instant feedback and practical advice to enhance your photography.

These photo walks are inclusive for all abilities, from absolute beginners to professionals. They will begin with a short briefing at your Jessops store, followed by a guided tour around the local Christmas market. Students are invited to use the latest kit provided by Panasonic Lumix but may bring their own cameras too if they wish.
