A few months ago while I was passing through Lyndhurst's St. Michael & All Angels Church, Ann, the lady who does all the admin type stuff asked me if I'd ever thought about doing an exhibition. I actually had, but had never done anything with the idea.
I put it to my community of previous Photo Experience Day clients on Facebook and there was lots of interest.
Fast forward a few months, lots of planning and picking their favourite 3 images later, and we had ourselves a weekend long exhibition.
It felt good, it looked good, and it raised a few pounds for the church fund. The falconry display inside the church on Sunday afternoon was a big success, and we even managed to sell a print (yes Sarah it does count even if it was a friend who bought it!).
Big thanks to various people for helping make the weekend a success; Ann for suggesting the idea, James the vicar for letting us use his place, the ladies who made some rather fabulous cakes, Ian for the high quality prints & framing, Paul for help organising the whole shindig, Sam for helping us with the PR, and of course to everyone who displayed their photos.
So good it was that a day after, we already have a date set for the second exhibition, and 24 hours into the planning we have more people interested in displaying their work.
