“Complacency is the forerunner of mediocrity. You can never work too hard on attitudes, effort and technique” - Don Meyer
In order to improve our own work and push our own ideas and practises further we are endlessly researching the work of photographers past and present as well as that of stylists and planners. One thing that we aim to never do is to stand still in our attitude to our work, we never stop trying to improve and hone our craft.
The workshop was co-created by Laura Charles and Claire White. Already knowing Laura of Reviva Weddings - her reputation as one of the top wedding planners in Spain speaks for itself and is well deserved. She was an architect of the upmarket destination wedding industry in Southern Spain and yet remains one of its’ most prestigious yet contemporary planners.
Claire is the founder of Butler and White. Since arriving on the coast we have closely followed her work and were rightly very excited to work with her.
What we particularly like about both Laura and Claire is that neither of them are willing to stand still despite the successes they have encountered as a byproduct of the love of their trade and craft.
To cut a long story short; upon learning that Laura and Claire were planning this photographic event we ensured that we were the first to sign up; we wanted to grow our own practise, experiences, network and most of all keep out of our comfort zone and experience something new and different.
It was a beautiful event and one of the many ways in which Helen and I are forever looking to constantly improve our practise.
A huge thank you to all of the suppliers involved in making the event such a success:
