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.

Haigh Hall Wedding Photography by David & Jane StanburyThis was our first wedding of what is looking like a great 2014 and what a way to start with Amanda & Chris's wedding at the stunning Lancashire Wedding Venue Haigh Hall. Our regular visitors will know that Haigh Hall is our local wedding venue and we are proud also that they recommend us as a Haigh Hall Wedding Photographer to their couples. The weather was what we had come to expect, wet & windy but as we met Chris at the hall and the rest of the guests arriving shortly after it was plain to see that everybody was in high spirits. Amanda was walked down the aisle by her very proud mum and after a few tears & laughs their lives changed forever as they became Mr & Mrs Walton. Canopes,laughter a few drinks followed and it was a joy to photograph the love between these two wonderful people and with the large windows and stunning backgrounds the Hall played its part too. Great speeches by all ended our coverage of the wedding and a huge thanks to Amanda & Chris for choosing us as their Haigh Hall Wedding Photographer, it was a great start to what is going to be a fantastic year.... keep checking into the blog for more If your planning a wedding at Haigh Hall and are looking for an experienced Haigh Hall Wedding Photographer then get in touch & lets have a chat.
