A Sunday Kind of Love – Unveiled

July 4, 2010


This weeks Sunday Love nomination has to go to all the lovely people who organised and attended the Unveiled photography event on Thursday. I was asked to speak at the event, hosted by The British Journal of Photography (for those of you that don’t know, the BJP is the oldest and one of the most internationally renowned photography magazines in the UK – eeek) and sponsored by Hasselblad. No pressure then!

I co-hosted a talk on blogging, social networking and alternative wedding photography with the amazing Chloé Browne of Caught the Light Photography. I would have died without her! She was so so awesome. Although I was super nervous beforehand I managed to not fall over and to not make too much of a fool of myself. I wore pretty new shoes and talked about having pink hair & tattoos and about how to be yourself…and I even made people laugh!

So thank you to The British Journal of Photography for inviting us to speak and to all the photographers who attended for listening to our babbles, for asking lots of questions and to the so many of you that came up to me afterwards to tell me you felt inspired and/or you enjoyed our talk. THAAAANK you.

On a final note, I know there were loads of people I didn’t get the chance to talk to. As these things often go, I bet you still had some questions that you never got to ask in the Q&A or afterwards and of course, ever since the event I’ve been thinking of things I wish I’d said, especially on the social networking side. So firstly if you do still have some questions about Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, blogging or finding your own photography style, please feel free to email me! And secondly, if you’re still baffled by social networking, you’ve got to watch this video. It’s pretty inspiring…

I look forward to the next one!
