Day Two – Saturday 1st February 2020.
A day packed full of inspirational speakers…
10:00-11:00 Lee Hatherall – ‘30 Tips for Weddings… and how to get that Money Shot‘
Lee has been a professional photographer for nearly 28 years, he has been there, done that, got the t-shirt and read the book – now he wants to share that book with you!
With plenty of experience under his belt – he’s shot over 1000 weddings in the UK and abroad – in this fast flowing session Lee is aiming to give 30 tips in 30 minutes which he feels are very important when taking images at weddings. Following that Lee will show some of his work and explain the importance of the ‘money shot’, his thought processes when creating his, and leaving time for any questions at the end.
11:30-12:30 Sarah Wilkes – ‘Male Faces’ The Project.
Don’t miss this demonstration of Sarah’s Steam Punk character shoot using a 4 light set up right before your eyes! Sarah will be speaking about her Male Faces project and the work she has put in this year to achieve 9 Golds, 27 silvers, 10 High Bronzes and 8 Bronzes within the IOM! Sarah has always had an interest in photography, responding to her true calling in 2010 when Sarah Wilkes Photography launched! Her business specialises in Newborns, but over the past 2 years Sarah has been focusing on her passion for Fine Art Child Portraiture leading on to the Male Faces Project. She has won many accolades for her work with The Guild of Photographers, The MPA, and earlier this year she was awarded ‘Portrait Photographer of the Year’ from The British Photography Awards!
12:30-13:30 LUNCH HOUR*
13:30-14:30 Jayne Bond & Henry Ransby – ‘Fur & Feathers’
In this fantastic session cram packed with stunning imagery and talent; Jayne Bond will be taking you through her images and experience from befriending a local fox family. Henry takes you through his images taken in his lovely area of the world; highlighting that it can be done with little more than observation and patience…
Jayne retired in 2013 after 33 years of teaching. Since then she has travelled, photographing wildlife across Europe, India, Alaska and South Africa, but more recently her ‘happy place’ has been in a local graveyard where she has had the most amazing opportunity to watch a fox family grow. Jayne will tell you how this started, what was involved and lots about the whole experience.
After 20 years in the market research sector, the birth of his first child finally gave Henry the opportunity to pursue his dream to be a wildlife photographer. Henry answers the call of nature by always having his camera at hand. In fact he regards himself as just ‘a Man on a walk with a camera’. He is far more than just that, as you will see and his passion oozes through his images whether taken abroad in amazing places such as Thailand and Australia, or at home in rural Bedfordshire. His passion for wildlife and photography is also something he loves to share with his children, just like his father did with him…
