Down on the farm

In March I went off to the Photography Farm, an intensive three day residential workshop run by Lisa Devlin and her impressive creative team. Set on a massive farm, we were very well looked after, fed well and kept snug in the 16th century farmhouse. When I was looking at training and development activities I could do this year, the farm was the most popular suggestion and with good reason. It was a fantastic opportunity to meet other photographers, share ideas and talk into the small hours about power ballads.

The photos accompanying this post are from the farm’s styled shoot, an opportunity to photograph a couple in a way that there’s not always time to do on a wedding day. This shoot was inspired by the story of Jemima Puddleduck by Beatrix Potter, and featured a fantastic dress layered with feathers, some amazing eyelashes and a painstakingly detailed leafy bower. The models for the shoot were fellow photographer Hannah Millard and her husband Iwan, who both did a great job and got really into the shoot despite the cluster of photographers gathered around them. It’s interesting watching other photographers at work, the way they shoot and how they interact with their subjects: There’s always something to learn.

There were some very challenging sessions over the three days, but they were also the things I found most valuable. The farm was a great experience and I would thoroughly recommend it. Everyone was warm and friendly, the atmosphere relaxed, and the group size just right. I’m really rather jealous that there’s going to be another one in May!
