We have just arrived back in head office after the first Jersey Photography Convention, and we are thrilled with all the positive feedback coming from photographers about the Convention.

Over the two days, seminars were held by John Denton, Richard P Walton and Catherine Connor. Also the trade show was full of the latest products and services from the industry for photographers to view.

Photographers from both Jersey and Guernsey are all ready writing in to the office to get information on the Jersey Photography Convention 2014 and possibly a Guernsey addition too.

I (Colin Jones) would like to thank so many people for helping me get the first Jersey Photography Convention off the ground. I know I’ll end up missing someone and if it’s you I apologies, but a big thanks to:

The final countdown to the Jersey Photography Convention has now begun.

The all-welcome two day event at the Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel, St Helier is set to take place between 31 October and 1 November 2013. The Societies has lined-up a range of seminars from lighting to photographic business techniques to give attendees a broad range of topics covered. The Trade Show will feature leading photographic companies where attendees can get information on the latest equipment and services.

Limited places are now available for both the Masterclasses and John Denton’s location seminar on the Friday night of the Convention.

There are only 15 places remaining on the Masterclass programme. The Harbour Safari location seminar only has 3 places remaining and we are expecting this to sell out by the end of this week, this class has been arranged as the Thursday night location seminar sold out 6 months prior to the event.

Business guru Catherine Connor will be presenting 2 Masterclasses. Catherine is well renowned for her positive and inspirational seminars. Heading up Aspire Photography Training (voted The Best Professional Photographic Training 2012) she will also be on stand at the trade show to answer any questions.
