So this is the my second year going to Farmshop 17 run by the great Lisa Devlin of Photography Farm. This year was a slightly different format over two intense days in lovely Brighton (first time in Brighton definitely coming back for another visit) Day one was a full day of talks from some of the industries biggest superstars including Sara K Byrne, Lisa Jane, Phil Chester, Jim Pollard, Kat Williams, Mark Pacura, Janneke Storm and Todd Hunter McGaw…..and then on day two there was shoot sessions with a speaker of your choice! To be honest I would have loved to take part in every shoot session, especially after hearing them all speak the previous day, but had to decide on just the two. So I went for Sara K Byrne and Lisa Jane, two of my all time favs!

These workshops are good for the soul and help reboot you when you feel like you are getting bogged down in the day to day workings of wedding photography! Just chatting to other photographers who are in the same boat as yourself and knowing there is a network of people who you can call on is amazing!

Here is just a few of my favourites from the day from both shoots starting with Sara’s session in the morning and then Lisa’s later in the afternoon. I learned a lot and loved being able to hang out with these two awesome ladies as well as other photographers. Took away so much from these two days and I’m super excited about what the year ahead holds!
