The 2008 Convention of the SWPP (Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers) and the BPPA (British Professional Photographers Associates) will be held January 16-21, 2008 at the Novotel London West.
The convention incorporates a photography trade show which is open from the 18th to the 20th. Over 150 important exhibitors are expected to participate.
The convention itself is an ideal opportunity for photographers to learn from the experts, say the organizers. Top names include Ken Sklute, Michael Redford, Marilyn Sholin, Trevor & Faye Yerbury, Mark Cleghorn, Dennis Orchard, Suzette Allen, Anthony Cava and Dave Montizambert.
There will be a business school workshop where attendees can learn much about running a successful business. The Masterclasses â€“ greatly focused workshops â€“ will also offer priceless tips from the experts of the profession.
The â€˜Mentor Meâ€™ feature of the convention has also been fine tuned to feature a 30-minute lecture followed by an opportunity to book a one-on-one 15 minute session with one of the Mentors.
