I spent Sunday hanging out with other Northern Irish photographers who are part of the Professional Photographers Association of Northern Ireland (PPANI) at the gorgeous Slieve Donard in County Down.
We enjoyed a seminar by the amazing Stuart Cooper from Cooper Photography. I’d met Stuart at an Aspire course at Focus on Imaging and was looking forward to the seminar. As part of it Stuart photographed a model and we even had one of our members stand in as the groom. Here’s a few images I captured over his shoulder.
That night we got together for the Las Vegas themed PPANI Awards which celebrate the best in image-making in Northern Ireland. Audrey Kelly, Steven Hanna and Peter Thomas were on my table with their partners and took home lots and lots of glass! I’m looking forward to entering a few awards myself next year.
Margaret and I had a brilliant night and the next day chilled out in the pool and got treated in the spa.That’s the life!
