A team of the Societies' fellows has been touring the country delivering mentoring on the Mentor Me Programme. This has proven to be both popular and successful. At a recent session at DPM Wallbank's facilities in Manchester we found ourselves with 30 minutes to spare owing to a cancellation. Now the lighting wizard, Damian McGillicuddy had been laying on demonstrations for people attending mentoring, majoring on beauty lighting using just two lights and in confined spaces. Many people had been amazed by the quality of light he was creating from just two battery-powered flash guns and during the banter of our 30-mimute break Damian was challenged to produce our front cover shot with simple gear, in a confined space and within the time we had to spare.
Never one to shrink from a challenge, he was up from the desk like a shot, held a quick wardrobe discussion with Lozie, collected a few 'mentored' students as witnesses and off we went.
There are 155 days to get ready for The Societies of Photographers Convention and Trade Show at The Novotel London West, Hammersmith ...
