Friday The 22nd of July

Hannah is an award-winning professional portrait photographer who shoots all kinds of subjects from actors, models, authors, musicians, TV presenters and celebrities to corporate headshots and families. Hannah runs a successful high street photography business that she started 13 years ago, aged 22, and has won the FSB Young Business Person award twice. Hannah is an educator for the Profoto academy and is involved in many speaking engagements, sharing her passion for light shaping and portraiture.

If you love documentary-style photography, then this talk will inspire you.

Join official Fujifilm X-Photographer Kevin Mullins as he discusses how the Fujifilm X-Series has empowered him to forge a unique style of documentary photography within the Wedding, Street and Social Photography genres.  Kevin has been shooting professionally with the X-Series of cameras since 2011 and, in that time, has amassed some 450 weddings.  Kevin believes passionately in authentic documentary photography and, to that end, will describe how he shoots candidly and as unobtrusively as possible.

From being an early adopter of the original X100, and a user of almost every Fujifilm camera in between, Kevin now shoots primarily with an X100V, X-Pro3 and GFX100S.

In this talk, Kevin will share with you images he has taken at Weddings, on the Street and Family work over the last ten years – explaining along the way the benefit of mirrorless cameras, the 5W’s recipe for creating a photo story and passing on his knowledge of the trinity of Light, Composition and Moment.

Saturday the 23rd of July

Kate is a second career people photographer specialising in weddings, portraits and boudoir. In recent years she has also added cinematography to her skillset and what lies at the heart of her work is a fascination with how humans love and live. She feels very privileged to be able to capture relationships – whether that is between a couple, a family, a woman with her body and self esteem or even a human and an animal. It is like holding up a mirror to show people on the outside what they feel on the inside. She works side by side with her husband and fellow Sony Europe Imaging Ambassador, Brent Kirkman, as an educator and mentor for Training byLUMIERE and in their destination wedding business. They describe their style as ‘fine art storytelling’ promising to capture natural emotion and human connection in a stylish and creative way. Crafting work that is genuine, beautiful and artistic, that stands out but also stands the test of time.

Saraya Cortaville is an award-winning portrait and social documentary photographer. She has received two fellowships (one of only two women in the UK to have achieved this), one for studio portraiture and, most recently, a social documentary for a project she completed in 2015 whilst living in Africa.

She was awarded the Peter Grugeon award for the best fellowship portfolio in 2015 and a gold award in Visual Arts in the professional photography awards in 2016.

Her passion for travel and people has pushed her career in to a more adventurous phase, and she has recently lived and worked abroad for various international NGO’s documenting social issues in countries as far as Tanzania and Nepal.

Saraya skillfully manages to draw out her subject's emotions and feelings in a sensitive and empathetic nature; her portraits are an observation and moment of connection between two people rather than the photographer or subject.

When not abroad, Saraya shoots primarily location portraiture specialising in children and documentary weddings.
