OK. I admit it – I’m guilty! It’s a fair cop …. sorry! Guilty of what? Of not posting recently, but I do have a good excuse (well, I hope you think it is) ….
As a wedding photographer in Bournemouth I don’t get much time off during the wedding season. Correction – I had NO time off during the peak wedding season! If I wasn’t shooting weddings I was stuck in front of the PC editing the images. Now, the season’s not over, but things are starting to quieten down a little, which is nice. Anyway, earlier this year I heard of a fantastic workshop being run by one of the top 10 wedding photographers in the world – Yervant. What was even better was that this wasn’t to be held in the US or Australia, but in Europe – in fact, in my favourite city … Venice. Checked the diary – didn’t clash with any weddings, so signed up and crossed my fingers that no enquiries came in for the dates I’d be away.
So, three weeks ago I packed my bags and headed off to Gatwick. I’ll post in a couple of weeks about the experience but I have to say that it was one of most rewarding “work” weeks of my career. A fantastic location, a great teacher and new friends from 18 countries … it was brilliant. Here’s just a sneak peek from my first morning in Venice with the sun just above the horizon.
Oh, what’s that about the title of the post? Well, it was shot with my little Fuji X100, probably my favourite camera …. and it’s a lot lighter than carrying around my wedding kit! 🙂
