you know this blog has always been about the community and how essential it is to have the support and encouragement of others.  without community, it’s can get hard being out there on your own.  this industry has a pretty solid one and for that, i’m really thankful.  this blog could not run without the love and support from others.  i have absolutely loved this journey of creating such personal friendships and relationships with the wedding photographers who have submitted their work to this blog.  and i’ve absolutely enjoyed learning from them and seeing them learn from each other and cheer each other on.

so i am thrilled and very excited to help announce

a world class line up is announced as part of SNAP, the UK’s first ever photography 
festival aimed at wedding and lifestyle photographers.
SNAP showcases the first ever festival of this kind in
the UK. held at the beautiful Fforest resort, in West Wales. the festival will run to the same
format as a music festival, but is designed as an immersive learning and creative development
experience for more than 100 photographers from all over the world.
some of the world’s most inspiring wedding photographers will be teaching alongside the UK’s
finest home grown talent, as well as photographers outside of the wedding genre.

“i attended Photo Field Trip in the US earlier this year and found it hugely inspiring” says Laura 
Babb, SNAP Photography Festival’s founder. “it was as far away from a corporate conference as
you can get, with all of the teachers hanging out with the attendees, camp fires, parties and a
completely unique, shared experience. i knew i had to bring something similar to the UK.  as well
as all of the amazing workshops and activities we’re planning, we’ll be having an epic closing
party where campers can let off some steam before the start of the new wedding season”.

to celebrate the launch of the website SNAP Photography Festival has a number of offers and 
incentives available.

the first is an early bird discount combined with a donation to charity on behalf of the ticket
purchaser: http://www.snapphotofestival.com/blog/2014/10/19/the-early-bird-catches-the-worm

they also have 6 opportunities to attend the festival on a free or discounted basis: http://www.snapphotofestival.com/blog/2014/10/15/snap-needs-you

we are keen to hear from organisations who may wish to partner with us.  a range of sponsorship
opportunities are available so please get in touch for a media pack.

here’s some work from some of the speakers as this week’s confetti throw fridays.  the line up is spectacular so please go check this AMAZING festival now.
