I was at The Photography Show last weekend. The show has numerous stages where one can listen to photography experts lecture about themselves essentially, how to do this, that and the other and generally listen to their own voice over the 4 days.
There's also the small matter of 250 trade stands selling everything from cameras to bags, from association membership to drones and everything in-between.
Amongst the rubbish and junk I purchased, my biggest buy was an event printer. I had done a lot of research before the show and had decided an event printer was a great way to develop the business. From now on I'll be able to do a photobooth, with pictures available within minutes of the photo being taken, and all sorts of events catered for - debs, grads, sporting awards nights, dinner dances, birthday parties etc, etc.
How does it work? On arrival at the event, I set up a background, lights, camera, laptop and printer. When the first client arrives, I take the picture and print it out (a 6x4 takes 8 seconds to print!) then simply sell it to the customer.
If you're interested in hiring me and my printer, give me a shout - contact details are at the bottom of this page.
