A day of learning and lols

Meet Caroline Hancox. She is my ‘Photography Friend’. We met at a workshop years ago and as a fellow creative wedding photographer – who also spends most of her time working alone, we made a blood promise to meet up every few months in London – ¬†neck lots of coffee, talk shop and wander around lovely photography exhibitions together. It was on one of these occasions we found ourselves discussing the age old topic of how to stretch ourselves artistically on a shoot, whilst also guaranteeing a fabulous result for our client. Often we find ourselves sticking to what we know works… because we know it works. So a plan emerged – our next meet up would involve a day of photographing each other – to explore ideas, to challenge ourselves and to have no consideration of the end goal. I learnt a lot from the experience, mostly from being on the other side of the camera for a day – I learnt it’s hard but with encouragement you gain confidence and it gets easier – once this happens beautiful things start to emerge. This confirmed to me how important a Pre Wedding Shoot is for smashing through the awkwardness and getting past peoples inhibitions. Good exercising of the creative muscles. x2015-05-20_0001
