The Photography show was held at the beginning of the month in Birmingham NEC. It’s where professionals and amateurs meet with manufacturers, distributors and many others for all kinds of update, gear, technique or just a chat. Before the Photography Show, there was Focus on Imaging in the same venue at about the same time. However, they’ve stopped that and there wasn’t anything equivalent until this one was organised.
For the first show, they have huge names at the Super Stage like Rankin, Joe McNally and others. They also have the studio sessions, live stage and of course various presentations at different stands.
This year, Olympus have a stand which is great and that also means I can catch up with the crew, check out the new cameras and make a fool of myself Haha! Despite my bad mood for being woken at 4AM to catch my train on time, I was able to hold the destructive mood at bay, even when one lady at the Olympus stand told me to stop helping them (if you’ve got goodies, bags and prints, you don’t leave them on top of the desk, you put them together and give it to as many people as you can!) oh and for answering a question about the camera new camera (rolls eyes).
There were presentations inside the Olympus cave. One of the speakers was Edmund Terakopian about his LA photos.
And because a lot of Olympus users requested for service technicians, Olympus flew them over from Portugal to clean the Olympus cameras and lenses. My old EP3 was spot free afterwards. Too bad they can’t fix the wear and scratches. Anyway, if you missed them, don’t worry. They will be back and will be around at the Gadget Show.
A lot of the same crowd were present including the gorgeous model Katie Green who was at the Manfrotto stand.
Sigma’s Ray Fitchett with the huge lenses was there too as well as some very helpful people at Sigma. I tested out the 3 prime lenses they have for the Olympus Micro Four Thirds cameras…
They’re wicked. I particularly like the 60mm ƒ2.8 probably because of the shiny body
Haha! He didn’t notice me took a photo I was told Sorry for the Game of Thrones edit.
Anyways, I had fun…
It looks like Claire & Clare had fun…
To the organisers of the show, well done. You’ve set a good standard for future shows, keep it up. I love it. Oh, before I forget, GPOTY at the corner was a brilliant idea. I got got loads of headless/or bending over people photos from them (nasty humour today) ;).
Bring on the next one!
Lastolite is a very good brand when it comes to photography equipment. They make long lasting and great products. I’ve always wanted to own a Lastolite HiLite, so when I opened my studio, I had to have one. I use my HiLite on location and in studio, as it is an amazing way to diffuse light. Big and soft. I also love using it to events & parties. Please note, I do not like doing product reviews for new stuff. I like to use the item first and see how it handles. So after 6 months, here’s the verdict.
That is my Hilite, it’s great to have in the studio. I love it It is convenient, doesn’t take that much space when packed and I can use it as a background and light modifier. I can use my studio lights and my flashguns with it. It came with a big blue bag, 4 rods and instructions. The carrier bag is good and sturdy. It not only fit my background but I can add my reflector and a couple of softboxes. I do not like where the strap/handle is placed though. It put the zipper end at the bottom when you are carrying it. Continue reading
I’ve entered a competition where the winner will receive mentoring from Rankin, one of the world’s best photographers. It would be a great opportunity for me to learn from the best and thereby improve the service I can offer to you.
My project is called INSPIRED BY YOU. Which basically takes inspiration from you, the environment, topics, fictional characters and everything. It is the kind of project that will evolve depending on what is possible, available or how far I can push myself.
All of the images and projects I photographed have you in mind, I want you to be able to imagine yourself in the picture and to see a positive image.
Please visit the page for my competition entry and click the “support me” button.
You’ll need to be logged into facebook to do this.
Did you know that we also frame other items other than pictures? Well, we do and we do it very well too.
For items of clothing like this one, it’s presented “Full Wrap” to show all the signatures. Then it’s carefully secured, mounted and a spacer is added so it won’t stick onto the glass. In all it’s a 28″x32″ frame.
In our shop, we currently offer 3 moulding styles – matt black, walnut and driftwood white at 20mm wide and 32mm deep. We have wider mouldings available in the workshop, so if you want something different than this one, please do contact me.
If you’re not far from my studio, come and see us and we’ll give you 5% discount! If you are one of my photography clients, we’ll give you 10% discount!
Note: We do not keep sports memorabilia sample in the studio. This is a client’s custom order.
