Thank you to everyone who entered our June competition ‘My family and other animals’.  We are pleased to announce that our IQA has chosen this as his winner and 2nd place!  Congratulations  Shelby Powell and to a very close runner up Mark James!



Why Shelby’s image won over Mark’s image is because although Mark’s image is a nice pretty picture and a great decisive moment, Shelby’s image is less obvious and more thought provoking.  For those who are looking to enter our future competitions, bear this in mind. The image is always stronger if it’s thought provoking and engages with the viewer rather than just being a pretty picture.

This week we’ve been teaching our 10 Day Advanced Portrait and Wedding Photography Course as well as doing studio shoots, including one with a puppy Bichon Frise Poodle.

Our web developer now has all the information on our exciting new weekend courses that are available so keep a look out for the changes to our website for more details.

Thank you to everyone who entered our competition ‘My family and other animals’ this month.  Sorry for the delay in announcing the winner, our IQA is on holiday this week, we will announce the winner as soon as possible.

The theme of the competition for July is going to be ‘Motion’. This can be anything that you feel represents ‘Motion’. Send us your images via our Facebook page or to our email address: info@firstpointphotography.co.uk and be in with the chance to win another £25 gift voucher for wexphotographic.com.  You are only able to enter two images so choose well!

Hope everyone has had a nice Easter and made the most of the long weekend! We were surprised to hear that it takes 50 minutes of walking to burn off one Cadburys crème egg!.........Stacey’s just gone for a 50 mile walk.

It was a busy week last week as our 5 Day Portrait and Wedding Photography Course was full; we have uploaded some of the students images on our Facebook page for you to take a look at www.facebook.com/firstpointphotography .  You will also be able to see images done by our past students from our Wedding and Portrait Photography Courses as well as our Digital Manipulation Course.

We had a great time teaching all the student’s different tricks on how to get some great photos, as well as passing on helpful tips on how to set-up and run a successful and profitable Wedding and Portrait Photography business! We’ve also been running an advertising campaign for our studio sittings and this is now starting to build up.

Don’t forget to take a look at our Facebook page where we have now uploaded a few images from last week’s 5 Day Portrait and Wedding Photography Course. www.facebook.com/firstpointphotography
