Lisa Devlin's Photography Farm with Kat Williams, Rock n' Roll Bride!

Another busy one, started my Degree in Photography, helped at Lisa Devlin's Photography Farm and second shot a wedding in Basingstoke with the rather fantabulous Jayne Sacco of Sacco & Sacco Photography.

In case you're sat there wondering what the hell a 'Photography Farm' is, it is this....  Two and a half days spent at a stunning location near Gatwick with Lisa Devlin, British Wedding Photographer of the Year where you get to learn about all areas of wedding photography from how to work in practice, to workflow, to technique, to pricing & marketing... the list goes on and on but I would recommend it to anyone who wants to take their business further and gain some focus and direction in what they're doing.  Not to mention, it's also a great opportunity to get photographs for your portfolio!!

The first day of the Farm was all about taking photos.  There were three staged areas around the Farm styled absolutely beautifully by Hannah of The Tea Set and Jayne Sacco of Sacco & Sacco Photography who just did an amazing job and worked so hard to make it a really successful day.

Rob and Heather, who are having their wedding shot by Lisa next April, had their engagement shoot at the Farm so everyone was able to firstly watch Lisa as she photographed them before having time with them to get their own shots.  I'll blog the photos of the engagement shoot later plus some behind the scenes stuff!

For the other two shoots, Kat Williams from Rock n' Roll Bride was our model!  Kat, also guest speaker, talked on Day 2 about wedding blogs and what she looks for in photographers submissions.

All in all, if you're thinking about it, I'd say it's a brilliant opportunity to be part of something really special and to gain hands on practical photographic experience as well as learn about the business side of things.

I think sometimes as photographers it's easy to feel lost and overwhelmed by the sheer amount of competition and imagery out there and the Photography Farm is a great chance to meet people who feel just the same as you, get some great shots for your portfolio and find direction for yourself and your business.

Now - the photos.  More to follow of the engagement shoot next week plus behind the scenes xxx
