It’s a busy week this week, as we are teaching both our 5 day Portrait and Wedding Photography course and our 5 day Digital Manipulation course!  We’re really enjoying having another full house this week!

We’ve had a few changes made to our website, including a new section on Weddings and Evening courses, so take a look and let us know what you think! (Please bear with us though, changes are still being made)

 
It’s the last day of our July competition tomorrow ‘Motion’ (31st July), so if you have any last minute entries, please email them to us at info@firstpointphotography.co.uk or post them onto our Facebook page!  Our IQA is away for a couple of weeks, so the competition winner will not be announced until his is back.  As soon as he has chosen his winner, we will be sure to let you guys know!

We shall announce the theme of our August competition next week so keep a look out for that!

We had a very well behaved puppy in the studio yesterday evening for a photoshoot and a 4 week old baby today! We’re really enjoying all the various photoshoot’s we’ve been fortunate to do these past couple of weeks! We have also been teaching our 10 day Advanced Portrait and Wedding Photography course this week and we thoroughly enjoyed having a full house!

We’ve been getting a lot of interest for our half day photography courses recently so make sure you give Jo a call on 01202 419808 to book your space on a course!

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.

This week in the studio, we’ve been very busy teaching our 5 Day Portrait and Wedding Photography course as well assessing students work, again 100% pass rate – Well done!!

We’ve been fully booked with studio shoots and today we hosted a school trip for students from a local school. They had great fun coming to the studio, learning about photography and taking part in a shoot and we thoroughly enjoyed having them!

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!
