Update: The Photography Show & The Video Show 2020 has been postponed until 19 to 22 September 2020
I will still be taking part in the same workshops outlined below, but will confirm new dates when possible.
Once again this year I’ve been asked to be part of the most amazing campaign to inspire and empower female photographers and videographers – Women Who Photo and Film.
And, for the second year in succession, a panel of fabulous videographers and photographers representing Women Who Photo and Film will be talking at The Video Show (also known as The Photography Show) at the NEC in Birmingham.
I hosted a panel of inspiration women who talk about the love they have for their job, their achievements as well as the challenges they’ve faced throughout their career.
As well as wedding videographers Charlene McNabb, Mandy Dhillon and Heather Hughes, we also had self-confessed ‘tech-geek’ Emily Lowrey, as well as branding and corporate videographers Natalia Grace and Lilla Nyeki.
If you want to watch the whole session …. and it’s worth every minute, here you go…
‘Heather Hughes will also be at this year’s Video Show on the panel that myself and Angela Nicholson from SheClicks will host.
Heather is delighted to be asked back to be part of it all again and share her knowledge and expertise.
“I’m still feeling blown away that I was chosen to be an Ambassador. I’m delighted and so excited as well as feeling honoured to have been chosen to represent women for a show that I love going to, and which also actively promotes women in the industry. Not only is it fun to be at, it’s a great place to network, research new gear and develop your skills, regardless of whether you’re a hobbyist or a seasoned pro.”
Joining us on stage will be fellow videographer Carys Kaiser AKA The Drone Lass, plus rising star photographer Paula Abu and the legendary Brooke Shadon. The ‘Secrets to success as a female photographer or filmmaker’ discussion will take place at Shutter Street on Monday 16 March at 16:20.
The Video Show 19 – 22 September, 2020 – Where else will you find me!
My passion for videography, storytelling and cinematography will also be on display this month, as once again I will on different stages for The Video Show sharing my knowledge and insights as well as some of my tricks of the trade.
It’s a must for anyone passionate about photography and moving image, with more than 32,000 people in attendance.
If you come to watch any of my talks please do come over and say hello. Otherwise you’ll find me hanging out on the Rise PFP stand with Karen Massey – or generally milling around attempting NOT to buy more equipment.
Saturday 14 March - 15:00 to 15:40
What: Wedding videos, but not as we know them
Where: The Studio with Rick Bronks
I’m really looking forward to this ‘fireside’ chat with Rick. I met him last year at the show and have worked with him at several events since then. He doesn’t like weddings, shooting them or even being there. As you know, I love weddings. So this could be a very interesting discussion … it will also include film clips and tips about my filming style and approach to conveying stories about people who just happen to be getting married.
Sunday 15 March & Monday 16 March - 11:00 to 11:30
Where: Video Live Stage
Now this I am looking forward and something I teach on my Evolve Videography Retreat in Switzerland – a hands-on approach to learning the skills of actually filming on the day of a wedding. One of the main challenges of is setting up multiple cameras and audio equipment for the ceremony. So I’ll be doing just that and explaining the choices I make and how they impact my films.
Monday 16 March - 16:20 to 17:00
What: The secrets to success as a female photographer or filmmaker
Where: Shutter Street

What: Elevating your work with great audio
Where: Masterclass Stage
I believe that great storytelling is only possible with crisp, clear audio. During this presentation I’ll be discussing ways in which you can best use audio to tell a story. I’ll also illustrate examples of how to capture great audio in various situations to take your filmmaking up a notch.
