I believe that training is a vital part of any creative professional and so I take time out to attend training courses, like that which I took part in this week, to further my knowledge and to gain new ideas and ways of working.
Back in January this year I attended the Societies Trade Show and was introduced to the lovely people at Aspire Photography Training based in Cumbria.
Our course tutor for All About Weddings was the very talented Kate Hopewell-Smith. Rachel Hayton from Aspire was on hand to facilitate the course and our models were James and Katie – a real couple – who were married two years ago at Lake Garda.
James is a very talented musician (www.jimjamsband.com) and we even had a chance to take a few profile shots of him with his Gibson Les Paul.
Every time I attend an Aspire Training Course I come away feeling inspired and brimming with new ideas to bring to my own photography.
