Event Photography - Society of Will Writers Annual Conference

Last week I was invited along to capture the Society of Will Writers 25th annual conference. It's always great to be asked along to capture an event which so much planning and tine has gone into but this was extra special as its the first time they have ever had a photographer along!

Professor Keith Brown


Seeing the conference agenda, I knew it was going to be a interesting day and not just from a photography point of view, the key speakers being:

  • Adam Johnson, Director of New Forest Wealth Management talking about 'How the government has 'resolved' care funding and why commentators feel its not the panacea promised.'

  • Tim Farmer, Clinical Director and Co-founder of Comentis presenting around 'Identifying and supporting vulnerable customers'

  • Professor Keith Brown, Founding Director National Centre for Post Qualifying Social Work and Professional Practice (NCPQSW) Centre for Leadership, Impact and Management Bournemouth (CLiMB) with a very thought provoking talk around 'Coercion and control in financial abuse: learning from domestic abuse'

It is great when not only do I get to do my job, but I learn some interesting things along the way that I would never have been exposed to. There were a lot of takeaways from the day and certainly a few things that I will be looking into getting sorted asap!


After the conference was a great evening of entertainment and a chance for everyone to unwind.


If you have an event in Nottingham, Lincoln or pretty much anywhere, get in touch and lets see what else I can learn!


What Anthony Belcher, Director of the society had to say:

Dan did an excellent job of capturing a conference we booked him for. Photos included the keynote speakers, audience participation, exhibition hall and private dinner. The final gallery is of very high quality, and really highlights the best the day had to offer so I'm very happy to have booked with Dan! Everything was uploaded to a private gallery for us, with an easy download as well which was really convenient.
Great to communicate with, a delight on the day and importantly caused no distractions during any of the talks, so he really did a very good job all round.
I would highly recommend Dan for your event photography, 5 stars, without a doubt.
