First off I thought I’d share this photograph of ‘Peanut’ with you; a 5 month old English Bull Terrier belonging to Danny Bartlett who I photographed in the studio recently. I originally posted this photograph of Peanut that I took at the end of Danny’s photo shoot up on Facebook and Twitter where it received it’s fair share of ‘Oooohhhh, aaahhhh’ comments so I thought it only right to give him his moment of fame here on the blog too. Mind you, something tells me we’re going to be seeing alot more of Peanut in the future.
Moving on, I’m real pleased to say that we’re getting closer to finally ‘going live’ with the Workshop, but before we do I’m going to be running one final ‘tester’, but this time we’re going to be covering alot more. We’ll be packing alot into the time we spend together; photographing in the Studio, outside on location and then ending the day by touching on a little bit of editing. I’ll be releasing the date of this final ‘tester’ in the next few days but plan for it to be on the first weekend in May; whether it’s the Saturday or the Sunday I’ll confirm with you asap but spaces will be limited to a maximum of 6 photographers.
As always this is going to be free for those who attend as the only payment I ask for is brutal and honest feedback. Refreshments in the form of tea, coffee and maybe one of Mrs D’s scrummy cakes will be provided but when it comes to lunch we’ll likely head off to one of my many favourite haunts.
‘Photography Meet-Up and Shoot-Out Competition’
Also, I’ve got some BIG news that I’ll be announcing in the near future with regards to a “Photography Meet Up & Shoot-Out Competiton” I’m organising, and the date for you to keep clear in your diary is Sunday 6th June 2010.
Now, I can’t reveal anymore about the competition and what it entails at this stage but what I can tell you is that there will be some awesome prizes for the overall winner. I’m in the middle of negotiating more prizes but at the moment one that I’m real excited about is a Photography Book signed by the Author and personally made out to the winner. Now, this is a book that I’ve raved about recently and that has made a massive impact on my business life so I’m guessing just by me saying that, you’ve got an incling as to what it could be.
