Photography Parlour - Antonina

A few months back I came across The Photography Parlour. Set up by the wonderful photographer Rosie Parsons, it is a fantastic forum for photographers to get together and learn from each other.

It was through the site that I came across shoot swaps, where photographers get together and stand in front of the camera rather than behind it. It is a great opportunity to get together and live, eat and breathe photography with someone who loves photography as much as you do.

I meet up with Antonina Mamzenko over the bank holiday. If you haven't checked out her blog, you should. She is an amazing portrait photographer and it was great being able to chat to Antonina about her business and her love of photography.

Here are a few images from my shoot swap with Antonina.

Shoot Swap - Claire of Scarab Pictures

The Photography Parlour is a fantastic resource for photographers. Set up by the fantastic photographer Rosie Parsons, it is a fantastic forum that allows photographers to get together and learn from each other. 

Rather than sitting at home over the bank holiday weekend, I decided to get out and about and use the time to take some photos. Rather that take photos on my own I got in contact with Claire and while taking photos we discovered our love of the the beautiful Lloyds building in the city. 
Check out Claire's blog, where you can find some stunning portraits and some photo's of me from out bank holiday shoot swap.

Shoot Swap - Kirsten Mavric

A few months back I came across The Photography Parlour. Set up by the fantastic photographer Rosie Parsons, it is a fantastic forum for photographers to get together and learn from each other.

It was through the site that I came across shoot swaps, where photographers get together and stand in front of the camera rather than behind it. It is a great opportunity to get together and live, eat and breathe photography with someone who loves photography as much as you do.

Last weekend I met up with the wonderful Kirsten Mavric  and her beautiful son Max for a shoot swap. She is an amazing portrait photographer and I find her work completely inspiring and Max is just beautiful. We had lots of fun wandering around Alexandra Palace and it was a great opportunity to talk photography. Kirsten is really supportive and after talking about my love of film photography, she was encouraging me to shoot more on film.
