Craig: Meeting up with fellow photographers for a days shoot certainly has its fair share of apprehension. We leave ourselves open to scrutiny as we expose the soft underbelly of our own insecurities. We unwittingly build up an air of expectations for ourselves and from our peers with unnecessary pressure.
The Photography Parlour G2G organised by Rosie Parsons was overwhelmingly generous. It did not take long to realise the scale of organisation from everybody involved. That people gave of themselves to such an extent was remarkable.
As photographers we were treated to a host of models who were tirelessly worked on by makeup artists. Vintage dresses were also supplied for a variety of shooting locales. We even had the opportunity to shoot various detail shots of a meticulously laid out wedding table ordained with the most exquisite cakes ,flowers and vintage tea sets. All this with the added bonus of having the exclusive use of The Harmony II as our base.
Our expectations of the day were exceeded far beyond what we expected. It was a refreshing realisation that through the initial anxiety everybody shared the same passion of photography, and as such were very eager to share and learn from like minded people. I can honestly say we were truly blessed to be part of such an enjoyable occasion. I can only hope that every photography get together will be as beneficial, but for us the marker has well and truly been laid.
