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.

Boutique Wedding Accessory Shoot Published in the USA

You'll remember a while back I shot the 2012 accessory collection for Nell'Amore Bridal Consultancy in Essex along with the amazing Caroline Gould: Wedding Planner, Bohemia Hair & Purity: The Beauty Retreat.  Well, this week the shoot was picked up by U.S Wedding Blog 'Life of a vintage lover' and Caitlin at the blog has run with the feature in her latest post. It's great when we're able to promote our services to a wider audience and so thanks to everyone that was involved with this shoot and made it happen.

FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS / A Fun Local Photographer Shoot Swap, Suffolk


Although we as wedding photographers invest a lot of time in building relationships with other wedding vendors, we do not always take time to connect with our fellow wedding photographers.  I recently had the opportunity to do just this and on a sunny day in March, we all headed down to central Ipswich, in Suffolk to chat, have lunch and to take some time out to shoot each other, giving us all a rare opportunity to be on the other side of the camera. It was an awesome day and I can't wait for the next opportunity.  If you're a photographer who hasnt't really connected with other photographers in your town, I whole-heartedly recommend it.  It's good for the soul.
