Fujifilm UK are bringing photography to the road this summer with the Wonder Photo Tour!
Follow us as we head to seven of the UK’s biggest family events, starting in July with The Royal Welsh Show.
In less than 3 months we’ll travel a total of 1,000 miles across the south of the country in the Wonder Photo Tour bus (it’s actually more of a trailer, but that just makes it bigger and better!). Our final stop will be the Chatsworth Country Fair in September.
Photography has always been at the heart of Fujifilm, and with the growth of smartphone and social media technology, we’re taking and sharing more photos than ever before! We think this is a cause for celebration, which is why we’ll be giving out free photos at all events, as well as offering you the chance to win a bundle of prizes.
“Our intention is to create an immersive and fun brand experience that inspires, entertains and educates individuals about the fun of photography and how photos can make a home. It doesn’t matter whether you’re using a camera or a smartphone – it’s about creating a lasting memory to share.”
– Peter Wigington, Marketing Manager
