The X-Weddings Wedding Photography Conference is, well, just a bit different from all the other conferences out there.
Born from the X-Weddings Facebook Group this two-day conference is aimed at wedding photographers who want to learn from some of the best photographers currently shooting with the Fujifilm system.
Way back in 2014, I had an idea about organising a photography conference that would allow Fujifilm wedding photographers to come together and not only learn from the speakers, but to spend time with them, and each other, socialise and basically, have a good ole time.
I started actively searching for venues and speakers some eighteen months ago and I’m delighted that the first ever X-Weddings Conference is set for 12th and 13th June 2018.
We’ve chosen the beautiful city of Bath in England for the event. Bath is historic and is located perfectly just an hour and a half from London and half an hour from Bristol airport.
We are really lucky to have the team at Fujifilm UK supporting us with this event. Fujifilm has shown time and time again that they are a company that put active photographers first.
Fujifilm UK will be present at the conference and you will be able to speak to product specialists as well have your cameras cleaned and checked, for free, on the day.
It’s taken a lot of time and effort to plan this conference but I’m not doing it for me. The speakers aren’t doing it for them. We are all keen to give something to the Wedding Photography community that we all exist in and I’m keeping the prices as low as humanly possible.
To keep the costs as low as possible we have packed a huge amount into the Keynote day. This will be pretty brutal in terms of your visionary senses and your learning.
We will, of course, have breaks but it’s going to be an incredibly busy day.
I’ve asked the speakers to educate as well as inspire. It’s all well and good seeing amazing work, but as delegates, you’ll want to take away practically tangible facts and instruction that will help you as photographers.
I have a break even point of course, but ultimately this isn’t about making a huge profit. I’m a wedding photographer, not an event manager and I want it to be as much about you as it is about us.
