FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS / SWPP London Conference 2013 Round up

I always find that January is a great time to take some time out and regroup.  To evaluate the past year, review where you think you could improve and most importantly, celebrate your successes, no matter how big or how small they may be. It just so happens that period of 'time out' coincided with the SWPP 2013 Conference in London, the UK's biggest professional photography conference.  As well as a great opportunity to catch some of the amazing speakers that attend each year and to check out all the hot products in the trade show, its a fantastic opportunity to meet up and network with other photographers.

This year I was able to catch up with my friends Zach & Jody Gray from Nashville, USA.  We first met a couple of years ago when the guys were over in the UK on a speaking engagement and so it was great to be able to meet up again and have a good chat over lunch.  I'm sure that you are aware of their amazing work, but if not certainly check it out.  Also if you're a Photographer reading this, they have some fantastic learning resources over on their website and on Creative Live.

It was also a great opportunity to hang out and catch up with the awesome Sara Thomas, Carl Middleditch, Alex Cameron, Gisela Olsson & Deidre McCullough as well as making a ton of new connections.  If you're a new photographer to the industry it really is an amazing opportunity.

On the final day of the conference I attended the keynote presentation by Jerry Ghionis.  Jerry is probably the photographer I most admire in the industry and the full day seminar really blew me away and I certainly came away looking at everything in a different way.

I leave you with a fun phone shot of me and Zach & Jody at lunch, great memories of a great few days.

A Sultry Fashion Portrait Experience: Jade

4041261675_119305331674_11760788_1954034093_n

This shoot may well go down as the coldest ever! It was a blustery, wet and pretty dreary day but my client Jade was ever the true professional and didn't let it phase her one bit. We chose the gritty backdrops of The Waterfront development in central Ipswich for our location and so armed with two wardrobe changes, we braved the elements to create some striking fashion inspired portraits. Check out some of the images from the shoot below.

If you would like to schedule your very own portrait experience that really produces stunning, magazine-worthy images, I'd love to hear from you.

Winter Fashion Portrait Experience: Jemma

3

This month I had the honour of photographing Jemma down at The Waterfront development in Ipswich town centre.  I had photographed Jemma once before, where she was modelling hair for John Michael Hair Dressing.  On that occasion she was fantastic so I jumped at the chance of working with her again, this time on location. The aim was to achieve a portfolio of fashion-inspired images and after discussing Jemma's chosen wardrobe for the shoot, I was able to scout out a number of locations in the area that complimented our choices.

Check out a number of images from the shoot below, I think you'll agree that Jemma looks simply stunning.

If you would like to schedule your very own portrait experience that really produces stunning, magazine-worthy images, I'd love to hear from you.
