Why my training is so important

Monday 12th February 2018

Every January the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers, of which I am a qualified member, run their annual convention in London. Photographers from all over the world converge for almost a week of mentoring, training competition and fun. I think this is my fourth year, and I look forward to the next one as soon as I get back! Although many of us are friends locally, we also see many friends who are scattered across the UK and the world, and we really enjoy our only face to face meet up of the year.

This year was more memorable for me than other years as I was to be a Speaker on the programme of educational seminars that ran over four days. My 2-hour Masterclass was to be on the subject of Business Networking and how to do it effectively. This is an area in which I have a wide range of experience and know its value. It was very exciting and scary, to see my name on the board!

Delegates found out about all the different places one can go to network for their business and the pros and cons of each. It was a very interactive session and I think we all enjoyed it.


I was also thrilled to receive a Merit award for my image of Jessie in the 20" x 16" Mounted Print Competition 

Keeping my training up today is essential moving my photography forward, and for the benefit of my clients too

It ensures I am constantly updating my practical photography skills, especially as I am developing my own specific style for portraits as the examples opposite show.I try to make every portrait as original as I can and to suit the individual. Giving advice on styling helps enormously.

The other photographers that I train with on my mentoring scheme all have differing styles, but we all benefit from the tuition and guidance we receive from Damian McGillicuddy.
