Review of the Year 2011

Well, it’s that time of the year again when we draw breath long enough to think about the fun, laughter and lovely people we have met during the year at our various Professional Photography events.

Weddings – our Weddings this year turned out to be mostly slightly closer to home and were constrained to Essex, Suffolk, Kent and Hertfordshire -2012 will involve longer distances!.  Some great clients who we hope will stay in contact. Our new system of pre-planning albums caused a little confusion early on but now we are explaining it better it seems to be very popular with our couples.

Wedding & Portrait Photographers International, Las Vegas – David had the ‘chore’ of attending what is becoming a bi-annual event at the WPPI convention. A great chance to study for 3 days with Jim Garner who is one of the worlds top Wedding Photographers, together with networking with many other fine Photographers from around the world. Another ‘Accolade of Excellence’ in the International Print competition put the icing on the cake!

We also had a good year helping to organise events for our local photographers group on behalf of the MPA and BIPP. It was a great pleasure to join a number of members of our group on the Buxton workshop where we tried out some new ideas.

We could not review our year without congratulating our friend Kevin Pengelly who achieved his Fellowship Qualification in Wedding Photography. A fantastic achievement.

I guess we should award our ‘photograph of the year” but as some of our favourites are currently entered in competitions maybe we had better hold on that!

So Thank You everybody who helped us in 2011. We look forward to 2012 and meeting many old and new friends and clients.

Happy New Year!
