UK in June

laROQUE-june-001.jpg

I’ve never been to Bath. Hell...I’ve never been to England, period. So when my friend Kevin Mullins asked if I’d be interested in being a guest speaker for his X-Weddings Conference 2018...let’s just say I didn’t hesitate much. My only apprehension stemmed from not being a wedding shooter—surrounded by world-renowned wedding shooters. But he quickly assured me it wouldn’t be a problem, that the goal was to go beyond a strictly wedding-oriented event. We are all visual storytellers and documentarians, regardless of subject matter. The conference will feature seven speakers: Facundo Santana (Argentina), Marianne Chua (England), Neale James (England), York Place Studios (England). Of course Kevin Mullins and yours truly to round it all up. Honestly, the work from these fellow photographers is humbling to say the least.

So here we go: off to Bath on June 12th and 13th 2018. I’ll be giving a talk entitled The United States of Photography on day one, and then manning a full-day workshop on day two. I’m taking a maximum of 6 participants for the workshop so space for this one is limited—I prefer keeping it small and personal. Facundo is also giving a workshop on the same day (12 max participants for his).

I’m extremely excited about this event and about finally setting foot on UK soil. We do share a Queen after all (yes, The Crown has indeed had an impact on our household). If you’re interested I have a promo code for you: plr2018 will give you a 5% discount on tickets for Keynote Day.

Jolly good times ahead I’m sure.
Cheerio ;)
