This week I was delighted to be part of the Zenfolio team at The Photography Show at the NEC in Birmingham. A massive trade show, which attracts thousands of photographers, TPS features all the top names from around the world, from camera manufacturers to album companies, with everything in between. Zenfolio are a website solution for photographers, which I have been using for a few years now. I have created my websites using Zen and all my client downloads and online sales are done through them.
So, after I finished my wedding on Saturday, I drove South and then flew Edinburgh to Birmingham, where I spent three days on the Zenfolio stand, talking to photographers about the products. It was a fantastic few days, and a real pleasure to be part of the team.
I had a good look around the show, and although there was some great things on show, I managed to come home without buying anything. The closest I came to handing over my credit card was a stand selling back massagers. I spend about ten minutes or so each day testing out the free trial ones, and must admit having had a sore back for a lot of the time, they really worked! I may look online!
It was good to see all the new breeds of camera which are taking over the camera world, and I must admit to testing one particular maker, and was greatly impressed, and could possibly be tempted to introduce one later this year. More on that later.
It’s always a great time to catch up with all my good friends in the industry and make new ones. All in all a great few days, and now it is back to work again.
