I photographed PAX in the City at The George Hotel in Edinburgh a couple of weeks ago. It’s a fantastic event run by The PA Exchange and is, rather unsurprisingly, aimed at helping PAs, EAs, office managers and secretaries network and find suppliers. The organisers and exhibitors really push the boat out to make a visually interesting, fun social evening that’s far more than merely a chance to connect with people standing behind stalls. That makes for great photo opportunities. And that makes me happy.
As you’ll spot in the pictures, I also exhibited at PAX, unveiling new flyers, a new photo display, new business cards and a raft of other promotional bits and pieces. The wee man in my logo (he’s known as ticketman) came to life in some curious ways: custom-made gingerbread men that were given away to all the guests, plastic table confetti and he’s even been turned into a charm on a necklace that I am a little bit in love with.
Thanks to the PAX organisers for a great event, to all the exhibitors who made such an effort, to the guests who posed for pics and to those of you who stopped by my stall to admire the photos, enter the competition and have a chat. I look forward to catching up with you again soon.
Note to exhibitors: I have more photos of the event so may have captured you and your stall on camera. Please get in touch with me if you’d like to see the rest or use any online.
My latest blog post for Blacksnow Studios looks at how photographers can keep businesses going over the winter. It’s oh so tempting to hibernate but I spoke to a friendly bunch of photographers and business coaches to explore more useful options. There are a few nuggets in there for other creative freelancers too.
I do a lot of writing and proofreading for the lovely people at Blacksnow Studios a company that has built business management software for photographers. It’s quite handy being the writer and the target audience at the same time!
Having donned my other creative hat to take their headshots a few months ago, I was chosen as the first photographer to go under the spotlight in their new blog feature. Read on to find out more about me and my photography…
I photographed April’s Scottish Women in Business meeting at Tapela in Glasgow. I learned that trying to eat, network, gossip, listen and take photographs at the same time is nigh on impossible. Fun night though, as ever.
I’ve hooked up with Revolver PR a couple of times in the last few months (some of my photos have been used in their caption competition and I provided a raffle prize for their International Women’s Day/Oxfam event) and I’ve now been featured on their website.
They asked me all sorts of difficult questions about what my business is about, who inspires me, what digital can be used to address, and where I’ll be in five years. Apparently my answers sound surprisingly intelligent, which has shocked my friends and family.
Please pop over to the Revolver PR site to have a read and let me know what you think.
