Starstruck - J* Workshop in London

Back in April I was relaxing by the pool of the fabby Lucknam Park spa hotel in the Cotswolds when I almost fell off my lounger upon discovering that photographer Jasmine Star was coming to give a workshop in London. Now, I am a HUGE fan of Jasmine's and the thought of missing out this opportunity was enough to have me hot-footing it across to the main hotel (in my robe) to register.

.....And boy am I glad I did.

The course was all about the 8 principles of branding, of which J* is an expert! Suffice to say, it was HUGELY inspiring (I can't even begin to explain how amazing it was!) and I have lots of work to do to act upon my new found knowledge. So watch this space..... :)

One of the best parts of the course was meeting such an amazing group of fellow photographers, who I hope I will remain in contact with for years to come.

A small part of the day was devoted to shooting. Which was tricky because not only was I completely distracted by wanting to watch Jasmine in action, but I was also forced to shoot in Manual mode which is a whole different ball game to my comfort zone of Aperture Priority which I find lends itself so well to my fast paced baby photography

Check out how gorgeous Rachel and Dan are!
