SNAP will be taking place between the 13th and 17th April 2015 and is the first ever festival of this kind in the UK.

Held at the beautiful Fforest resort, in West Wales, the festival is designed as an immersive learning and creative development experience for more than 100 photographers from all over the world.

Some of the world’s most inspiring wedding photographers will be teaching alongside the UK’s finest home grown talent, as well as photographers outside of the wedding genre.

I attended Photo Field Trip in the US earlier this year and found it hugely inspiring.  It was as far away from a corporate conference as you can get, with all of the teachers hanging out with the attendees, camp fires, parties and a completely unique, shared experience. I knew I had to bring something similar to the UK.

As well as all of the amazing workshops and activities we’re planning, we’ll be having an epic closing party where campers can let off some steam before the start of the new wedding season.
