One of the few photographers blogs that I subscribe to in my Google Reader, is that of Marianne Taylor. So, when she announced she was going to run a workshop, oddly called Mnoo School, I knew it was something I had to attend. (Above Photo – Me,2nd from left. Marianne’s in the middle wearing PJ’s!)

On October 24th & 25th, in South West London, I attended the first Mnoo School with 9 other photographers from around the UK. I’m not going to explain the details of the course, but it was an extremely informative and inspiring workshop. The other attendee’s were an excellent group of people, who also contributed to making it so enjoyable.

The 2nd day included a session of location photography, where Marianne demonstrated ‘Beloved’ invites. The brilliant and beautiful couple in the photos (Sophie & Henry), were previous Wedding clients of Marianne’s, and Sophie also attended the course.

Here are a few of the images I took:

As part of the workshop, another amazing photographer, Ed Peers gave a great run through of his approach to Wedding Photography. It was brilliant to see how other photographers minds work, especially when their styles are so varied, and Marianne & Ed showed almost opposite ways to achieve great photography.

Here is a photo of Ed showing off his ‘in close with a wide lens’ technique.

I can’t praise this course enough, as it has given me a lot of inspiration for my photography, but at the same time, many ways to grow my business.

If you are a Wedding Photographer, save up, and sign up for the next one.
