Seminars in the sun - For the third year running, the GP and GWP (Guild of Photographers and Guild of Wedding Photographers) has sponsored a delegate to attend PTO (Photo Training Overseas).
Paul enjoys a seminar on the Lanzarote Coast
Paul Haskins, from Cumbria, has returned from Lanzarote where a week of seminars has inspired him to develop his love of photography into a career for his retirement.
With topics covering landscape, wedding and portrait photography, Paul found the week a "most enjoyable eye opener to one’s deficiencies, and an inspiration for improvement and new techniques".
With a £500 cheque for spending money from Alan Stevenson, specialist insurers, he was fully able to enjoy the facilities at the Rubicon Palace Hotel in Playa Blanca. "It’s an excellent location. I’d definitely come back", he said. Maybe for his Ruby Wedding in May with wife Christine?
The Guild, which is a national body based in Somerset, is run by experienced photographer Joan Roberts and offers members professional, friendly support and training.
