After attaining my LRPS with the Royal Photographic Society, I checked out their list of Courses and activities and owing to someone having asked me to photograph their wedding, I realised that it is so long since I did one that technology, styles and expectations will have changed somewhat. Enter a perfectly valid reason for a weekend away with the camera. So, I checked places to stay on the net and found what looked like an idyllic retreat, King John’s Hunting Lodge in Lacock – what an absolute gem. My room was overlooking the rear garden with an apple tree just outside my window which was full of goldfinches (a charm of), bluetits, sparrows, robins and various others.
Anyway, the course was being run by Terry Hewlett ARPS who works closely with the RPS and over the two days gave a group of 14 of us the benefit of his experience and an insight into the complexity of shooting a wedding. Thoroughly enjoyable, made all the more so by having two great models, Mark and Sarah posing in various locations for us.
Here’s a few images from the time there :-
