It might only be early June when you’re reading this, but now’s the time to buy your
ticket and start planning for WPS’s The Road to Excellence Photography Conference,
November 8 and 9 in Brighton, England. Organizer Darius Sutherland (who founded
WPS in 2010) and partner Naomi Hyman (editor of sister site The Select Bride) are
committed to bringing you inspirational workshops and talks that will help you push
your business even further. “Wedding photography is all about self improvement and
pushing yourself with each wedding you shoot, “ says Sutherland. “Therefore in this
competitive and saturated industry, you have to be better than the best to survive.
Everyone can learn something from everyone else, so why not learn from the best?”
Speakers lined up so far include wedding photographers Franck Boutonnet, Brian Callaway,
Victor Lax, Cristiano Ostinelli, Damon Pijlman, Samo Rovan, Chris and Verity Sansom, The Twins
(Caroline and Kelly Briggs), VII photojournalist Jocelyn Bain Hogg and the legendary Martin
Parr. (Oh, and did we mention that our very own Jacqueline Tobin will be speaking as well?)
The conference promises to be an incredible networking opportunity and a way to
take your work to the next level. Or as the website blurb describes it:
2 Days in the Creative City of Brighton
• 10 inspirational photographers
• 1 drunken gathering of minds
• Meet new people & get inspired
prices: £450 (early bird/before june 19, 2016), £575 (last minute)
