The Societies Photographic Convention 2017

Last week, the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP) held its annual convention packed with educational programs and a representation from the big names in the photographic industry eager to show the latest in technology and design. As a member of the SWPP, I never miss the opportunity to come to this gathering and if you are a photographer who's serious about their craft you mustn't miss it either.

This year I particularly enjoyed The Flash Centre's stand, which featured photographer and retoucher Glyn Dewis, the backgrounds tutorial by The Photographer Academy, the motivational Blogging for Photographers talk by Donal Doherty from Engage, all the seminars on retouching and composites from Adobe (a big shout-out to Richard Curtis for putting together such interesting seminars) and the really inspiring tote bags from the guys at Folio Albums.

The SWPP is one of the strongest photographic organizations in the UK aimed at servicing the needs of professional photographers, whether in full or part-time occupations. The SWPP currently represents photographers who specialize in the following areas of expertise: photojournalists, weddings, portraits, children, animal, equestrian, digital, commercial, fashion, glamour, landscape, nature, sport, medical, scientific, press, PR, architectural, industrial, forensic, natural history, research, amongst others.
