Speaking at the London & Essex MPA/BIPP Group

I was thrilled to be asked to speak at the London & Essex MPA/BIPP group this week about my Wedding and Boudoir Phototgraphy.

I always enjoy meeting and talking to other professional photographers, everyone has different ways of working and I think as an industry we can learn so much from each other.

Part of my talk covered how we are now using the video capabilities of the Canon 5dMk2 cameras and incorporating it in to my wedding photography. The Canon 5dMk2 is capable of recording full HD video and coupled with the wide aperture prime lenses available it provides filming opportunities that have only previously been available on high end professional film cameras (think BBC high quality at this point….).

The skill sets between videographers and photographers are quite different. Working as a husband and wife team enables us both to concentrate on our differing areas of expertise, mine is the stills photography and Phill’s is the filming and movie slideshows. Whilst what we produce is definitely NOT a wedding video it brings elements of the day to life.

So, a big thank you to Kevin Pengelly and Martin Barnard for inviting me to speak and I look forward to meeting up with everyone from the London and Essex group again in the future.
