Sony A7III | Sigma Art 35mm 1.4 | f1.6 | 1/500 | ISO 320PRESET – Rebecca Carpenter Preset ‘Stay Golden’
Blimey, it’s September! On the one hand, I’m happy, it feels like turning a new page – or maybe it’s even more than that, like opening a fresh new notebook. But on the other hand I am sad that the summer is coming to an end, even though it’s been the weirdest time ever. I’m finding it frustrating trying to plan anything right now as situations can change in a heartbeat but also I’m never one for sitting around and not cooking up something.
So when I see photographers achieving shoots and workshops right now, I am in so much admiration. I know how stressful and challenging it can be and I’m just trying to produce events within the UK. When I saw Rebecca Carpenter’s Insta Stories from her styled shoot workshop in Santorini, I was incredibly impressed with how it all came together. It looked magical and must have been such a wonderful experience for the group that attended.
This shot is just incredible and I know how hard that Rebecca and her team worked to make this shoot happen and to provide an inspiring experience for the attendees. It’s just amazing to see the effort pay off and this level of shot be produced in current times.
Right now, we are planning the syling for our upcoming Shoot Day together. We might not have Greek sunsets but we do have the very glorious Walcot Hall as a backdrop and I cannot wait to see what Rebecca’s team come up with.

What Rebecca said ...
“After months and weeks of stress and worry about whether or not this workshop was going to go ahead, it actually happened. I’ve had several workshops cancelled and postponed this year so I almost expected it, but I managed to pull off the workshop of my dreams during a pandemic- I mean, who does a bloody destination photography workshop during a pandemic? Me. That’s who. (In my defence this workshop was planned and sold before Covid!)
