We talk a lot at Photography Farm about how to connect with your ideal clients and looking at this wedding shot by Zöe Barrie, I’d say this was her ideal wedding to shoot. She had personal connection to the venue and was a fan of the incredibly talented bride already. The details of this day […]

It will be held in Brighton and will include some fantastic industry prizes for different categories plus something rather special for the overall winner, the […]

Sometimes I have to pinch myself, I feel so lucky with Photography Farm. It has grown into something very special and a lot of that is to do with the team that come together for each event. I am so grateful to everyone involved including Melissa Love and Lisa Brown who helped to teach this […]

What an historic week it has been in the wedding industry.. Equal marriage for gay couples came into being and that was the cue for lots of ceremonies last weekend. A few of the Farmers were out shooting them but this sneak peek really stood out for me. Millie Benbow and her partner Jo shoot […]

One thing us wedding photographers have to content with is the great British weather, no matter what is forecast we need to be prepared for anything. I am a big fan of embracing whatever weather you end up with, even at weddings. After all that will be a big part of their memories from the […]

Photography Farm has been officially going since 2011 and we have had some truly awesome photographers come to us in that time for training and nurturing. We cannot help but feel super proud when they continue in their photographic journeys into new realms of amazingness afterwards. One of our truly outstanding Farmers has to be […]

Nicola from Images By Nica is one of our lovely Northern Irish Farmers. When I saw this shoot pop up in my Facebook feed, I wanted to see what she had done with the gorgeous landscape of the Mountains of Mourne. I grew up in Northern Ireland and will always love the mountains. This is […]

A lot of our Farmers second shoot for each other, it can be a great way to learn in the field and push your own creativity. When Sassy from Assassynation‘s second shooter Millie Benbow spotted this bride getting ready behind the frosted glass, she grabbed Sassy and this shot was made. The glass makes it […]

Just as the spring flowers are doing their best to bloom, wedding season is slowly beginning. This can be an exciting time to refresh your business and your creative energy and I’m super excited about shooting my first wedding in a few weeks. The Farmers are already popping their 2014 wedding cherries and for me, […]

Elements in Belfast Couple Shoot

We have just returned from a mighty few days in Belfast with Farm Elements. It was our busiest Elements yet, thanks no doubt to our incredible guest speaker Paula O’Hara. As part of Day Two we examine how to get the best from couple shoots and then we grab our cameras. The very lovely photographers […]

Farmers Image Of The Week #39

This week, my sites have moved onto a new server and although the whole process was pretty seamless thanks to my excellent web company Brighton Web, there have been one or two little gremlins in the system. One of which was the random disappearance of Lisa Brown’s excellent This Is What I See Post. So […]

Do you remember the way you hold hands, the way your other half looked at you right before they proposed, that smile that always makes you feel like you have the whole world in front on you, that look that makes you realise you are the only one in the room, that smirk that tells […]

Farmers Image Of The Week #38

What a week! Lots of us descended on a little Farmhouse deep in the countryside and immersed ourselves in five days of intensive learning, sharing, giggling, crying, power ballads, cornflake boxing ( I know… I’d never heard of it either!) and stepping out of comfort zones. We opened our eyes, our hearts and our minds. […]

People have barriers they put up to the world and sometimes it’s difficult to know if we are ever seeing the real person and sometimes we can wonder if it’s ever really possible to do so. I see the real person in those split seconds when they forget everybody else, and it’s those moments I […]

One of our Farm Week mentors Neil Thomas Douglas was asked this week to do a pregnancy portrait. Having only done one before, he started out by doing what he thought he should do… create a classic bump shot just like so many other photographers do. But then he realised that Nicole had asked him […]

How Much Should Wedding Photographers Charge?
How Much Should Wedding Photographers Charge?

What a crazy few days.. we have just returned from the Trade Show at SWPP in London. We have never taken Photography Farm to a show before so we really didn’t know what to expect. We had possibly the smallest stand in the entire place but feel that we made the best of it and […]

Some of our Farmers take a slightly competitive approach to Image Of The Week and this could be true of our resident lighting guru Adam Bronkhorst. He badgered me quite a bit before he eventually picked up his first Image Of The Week so I am sure he will be more than delighted to have […]

I don’t think it would be too much of a stretch to title myself an ‘Accidental Artist.’ Growing up I loved woodworking and fixing cars, and my architecture classes. While at University I spent the better part of my early 20s studying to be a doctor. I truly believed I was destined to use my […]

When I started this series, I really thought that come winter I would struggle to find winning images each week. This could not be further from the truth as I am spoilt for choice time and time again. There are almost 120 awesome photographers in our Facebook group now and they just keep raising the […]

Why You Should Always Include An Album

As a Wedding Photographer, are you including an album with every package that you offer clients? I didn’t use to but I do now…. by Lisa Devlin. Its been a huge few years for wedding photography. The arrival of affordable digital SLRs have of course impacted massively on how many people now offer their services […]

I’ve always loved old photos, the ones that show you a glimpse of a past that’s almost forgotten. I remember my grandad showing me photos of himself and his friends in North Africa during the second world war – it was the first time, aged 9, that I saw my grandad from any other perspective […]
