After a little R&R We are fit enough to bring you up to speed
After a long drive back home (and after a LONG all-night session in the Hilton, writing up the magazine article that we shot live in front of delegates over the four days of the show!), we’re finally back in the office after the chaos of The Photography Show.
I wanted to extend my personal thanks to each and every person who took the time to come and see me, whether it was for the “Over The Shoulder” sessions in the Hilton (where we shot the aforementioned article, and the money for which has made for a sizeable donation to Marie Curie), the “An Audience With” sessions on the Olympus stand, or even those of you kind/crazy enough to come and shake my hand, take a picture with me or even get to sign me your new camera(!!!).
I’m eternally grateful and humbled at just how many want to see me shoot, hear me speak and pick up a tip or two. I’m immensely privileged to hold he position I do and to help you, my friends, the photo public make decisions about your passion, your photography. It was lovely to be asked my personal opinion on what kit you should invest in and even more that you should come back with your purchases and ask for a picture. I’m just a photographer like you so this particularly humbles me. Here are a few personal smiles ;0)
As I always say, without YOU supporting what we do, there is no us. So please accept my sincerest thanks for choosing to spend your time with me and my crew!
Of course, this year Olympus did things a little bit differently than in years past, so I spent most of my time doing closed-door sessions rather than my usual public demonstrations on the main stage. I understand that many people were upset that they couldn’t get to see us, and likewise we’re very sorry that we didn’t get to interact with more of the photo public. So, as a bit of a make good gesture, if you’d like to come along to one of my own personal courses then please message me and I’ll send you a code for 10% off.
For those that couldn’t be with us for The shoot here area few of my favourite images we created and the live streamed “behind the scenes” video shot by one of the magazines… Enjoy!
