I am absolutely delighted with the hard work put in today (4th August) by my “Fab Four” photographers ably coordinated with the Lightroom and In Design skills of mentee, Barry Paffey, the father of the bride. Each photographer contributed an enormous amount to the success of the day, expanding their knowledge and skills under real and trying conditions. My thanks to Mark Varney, Darren Powell, Gulam Nabi and Tim Henniker-Parker for putting their hearts and souls into this workshop. I’m sure the couple will be delighted with the results, they have been so far.

Finally, huge thanks to Album Epoca from Riccione, Italy for putting to work their team of designers to complete and deliver the albums. Without their support this workshop would not have been quite the same. For more information on Album Epoca’s fantastic products please visit www.albumepoca.com

4th July LIVE WEDDING WORKSHOP – Darren Powell Photographer shouts out

The perfect Cheese Cake

When I first saw the opportunity to take part in a live London Wedding Workshop, my first thoughts was one of excitement. I go into every Wedding with one simple aim and that is to improve on my last Wedding. The chance to work with 3 other photographers and Martin Grahame-Dunn seemed like a fantastic opportunity. I knew It would allow me to see how others worked, but more importantly observe how other members of them team went about structuring their Wedding day coverage and got their images.

On reflection of the day, I got more that I could ever have hoped for. I got to work with some great people, observed how other photographers worked and more importantly saw an expert in his field at work.

If you ever get an opportunity like this, please ensure you take it! Staged training courses are fine, but learning in a live environment not only pushes your beyond your capabilities but ensures you actually get to go through the emotion of a real day. What a ‘Top Day’, and hugely educational. I can’t wait to see the finished album we have produced!
