This past week I have had the privilege of attending a week long residential in Uppermore Barn in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. As a newborn photographer I feel it is my duty to ensure that I am up to date in my training and so this was a great opportunity to refresh my skills in many areas including lighting, editing, business & marketing, posing, wrapping and safety. We had a number of photo shoots with both newborns and some young children, all of which were amazingly well behaved, even with 13 photographers all snapping around them!
As part of the course we also did 5 hours of Continued Professional Development in First Aid and was tailored to photographers. First Aid is such an important thing for us all to do, and I can recommend two great training providers in Marlow - Child Matters and Mini First Aid.
Overall this was a great week away and I have learnt a lot and can't wait to put these new skills into practice!
