Oh my goodness! This year I was lucky enough to head to Down To Photo 2019 in Raglan! The event was attended by around 30-40 other absolutely freaking incredible photographers across various different genres of photography! If you already read Hannah and Taylor’s blog then you know we got to listen to some amazing guest speakers! James Day, Jim Pollard, Jo Currie and Bubblerock and so many others came along to share their knowledge!
Jo Currie showed us all of her amazing travels around the world and her work with World Vision. This was so moving and eye-opening! Jim Pollard passed on some amazing tips to us about being safe when photographing couples in remote places like mountains. James Day talked us through his very much emotion fuelled style. Simon Devitt spoke to us about his incredible architecture photography. There were so many others as well! The whole experience was just insane and one blog post is not enough to do it justice.
These two, Monica & Justin are a real-life super cute couple who came along! We got to learn from the incredible Jim Pollard for this shoot! Look him up, his work around the world, usually in beautiful mountainscapes is amazing! (If anyone wants to fly me to gorgeous mountains I’m all in haha!). It was an insanely windy evening in Raglan! We ended up shooting more into the blue hour than golden hour but the mood and photographs were still incredible. I’m so thankful to be a part of such an amazing and supportive group of photographers and suppliers! And workshops like this are amazing because they help me get better at everything I do for my couples!
