Apply for the Photocraft Scholarship

I'm really excited to announce that I will be on the judging panel to select one lucky designer/maker to win a scholarship to take Photocraft's 4 week online course in photography and styling. The course, run by photographer and Photocraft founder Lyndsey James, is normally priced at £250, and is an amazing chance to improve your photography and styling for your business, which I for one, believe is one of the most important things when you are trying to sell and promote your products and business.

The images you use for your online shop/website and for distributing to the media really do make or break whether a customer is compelled to part with their money, and is certainly a huge factor in whether magazine editors will request your images to feature in their publication. You don't need to have a big, expensive, fancy camera, you just need to know how to use the one you've got and how to use light to your advantage, and this is just one of the things Lyndsey will share her knowledge on during the course. And remember, if you arm yourself with these skills, it will also potentially save you money in the long run, as you'll be able to shoot your own images rather than paying a photographer to do it for you.

I ran a feature in issue 7 of 91 Magazine about one of Lyndsey's live workshops, so do have a peek at this to find out more about her ethos and the kinds of things you can learn from her. Read the article here.

I'm really honoured to be amongst such a prestigious judging panel - Annie Sloan,  creator of world famous Chalk Paint; James Boardwell, founder of Folksy; Jane Means, gift wrapping extraordinaire and Suzy Rai, experienced business mentor.
