Last week, I spent a glorious few days down at the Farm. Armed with wellies, a suitcase full of clothes, and another case full of camera kit, I joined 8 other super-talented photographers to take part in the first ever Photography Farm – a really exciting new workshop run by UK Wedding Photographer of the year Lisa Devlin. Lisa is the most incredible photographer, and has set up camp at Photography Farm to share her knowledge, experience and general photographic grooviness with other photographers.
And do you know what, it was AMAZING! A really mindblowing opportunity to revel in creativity and inspiration for three days. The Farm itself used to host rockstars, and is the most gorgeous place. But it was really Lisa and the team behind Photography Farm that brought a little bit of magic…. Jayne and Hannah had styled so many out-of-this world set ups for us to shoot. And we had a beautiful couple in to photograph their engagement session, and also a rather special guest model in the form of Kat Williams aka Rock’n’Roll Bride. Eeek!
Particular highlights from our adventures include: the magic light photographing Kat; Holly playing catch the chicken; us all pimping our hair with pink hair extensions; Rob’s extra welcome present in his room; the goodie bags stuffed really full of cool things; the last day’s big fry up (mmmm); soggy feet from tramping through dewy fields; Ed’s Rock’n’Roll pink cocktails. Seriously, I loved every minute of it and if you are a photographer I cannot recommend it highly enough as a way to kickstart your creativity and make a brand new group of brilliant friends.
Thank you Lisa, Kat and the Photography Farm team. You really have created something special for us photographers to enjoy.
