The Photography Show 2014
The Photography Show was held at the NEC in Birmingham at the beginning of March and is the replacement for what was Europe’s Largest Photography Trade show Focus On Imaging and the trade was wondering would the new show be as big, as popular as the old Focus Show… well it was & BETTER. We had the honour & pleasure of presenting a few workshops & seminars at the show for 2 of our sponsors Hasselblad Cameras & Graphistudio Italian Albums and the response has been fantastic.
Our first workshop was for our (& your) wedding album supplier Graphistudio of Italy. Its always a pleasure to work with the fantastic Graphistudio gang they all fly in for the show from Arba near Venice and are great company they never stop smiling, especially for Steak & Ale Pie & Sticky Toffee Pudding (they LOVE English food). Next we presented our workshop for the legendary Hasselblad Cameras, those photographers who follow my blog will know Hasselblad as the Rolls Royce of cameras (they even supplied the cameras for the first moon landing) and what a laugh we had. For the workshop I had a professional Bridal model but no Male model so David from Hasselblad stood in & did a fine job as did a rather shy Mark (well he stood in as a bride, sorry Mark)
Its always great to meet up with our Photography friends aswell at these shows including our good friends Paul & Sarah Wilkinson,Andrew Younger,Sean Conboy & Karl Taylor and his team over from the channel islands. Thanks to Graphistudio, Hasselbad and their great people & Hannah my model but especially Marvin & Martin (my Graphistudio models) & David,Mark & Maxi (my Hasselblad models) for being great sports. We also met up with some amazing designers, MUA’s and fantastic creative people and we are looking forward to some really exciting collaborations in the future, and last but by no means least a HUGE thanks to all who came to the workshops & seminars we hope you found them informative, inspiring but most of all FUN.
