Why I like the SWPP: A platform to engage with and learn. Progressive. Annual trade show much better focussed than consumer photo shows,

Future plans: Continue to develop my wedding practice, especially with minority and new age groups e.g. pagan handfastings and civil ceremonies. Also to do more commercial work and environmental portraiture which I enjoy.
