Here’s one for wedding photographers across the globe, one that actually makes me wish I were a photographer! If you haven’t heard about SNAP Photography Festival yet, it’s time to come out of hibernation, sign up and get warmed up around that campfire with fellow inspirational photographers!A world class line up, an epic party and the start of a new community: SNAP is the UK’s first ever photography festival aimed at wedding and lifestyle photographers in April in Wales.
SNAP Photography Festival is a cross between a festival and a conference with clamping, learning, networking and inspirational activities, gathering together 100 photographers from all over the UK, Europe and the rest of the world. Held at the beautiful Fforest resort in West Wales, the festival will run to the same format as a music festival but is designed as an immersive learning and creative development experience for both new and experienced photographers. Some of the world’s most inspiring wedding photographers will be teaching alongside the UK’s finest home grown talent, as well as photographers from outside of the wedding genre.
Inspired by Photo Field Trip in the US earlier in 2014 Laura Babb, Snap Photography Festival’s founder, decided to bring something similar to the UK. As well as all of the amazing workshops and activities they are planning, they’ve also planned an epic closing party where campers can let off some steam before the start of the new wedding season.
The ticket price includes workshops covering everything from branding to a late night astro photography walk, as well as inspiring talks from photographers including Sam Hurd, Ross Harvey, Dylan and Sara and Lomo Kev. The full schedule can be found here.
