The Photography Show: A whole lot of action going on

March 31 2015

Last week’s Photography Show in Birmingham, UK was a blast. I was invited by the lovely Cassandra Grant to give a talk on Branding and Coming to Market, and I reviewed portfolios for four really talented photographers. It was also a great opportunity for me to see the scope of the UK photo community, and to get to know everyone from MADE, the hip photo booth people (I was so excited, I wanted a photo booth of my own) to the very worthy organization PhotoVoice (working at the junction of social change, photography, fine art and publishing) to learning all about the competition for International Garden Photographer of the Year (how very perfect is that for a nation of gardeners?)

The event was made even more wonderful by the presence of my dear friend David Partner, who has shown his formal, uncompromisingly honest portraits of Parliamentarians at the National Gallery in London, and by Cedric, my “life partner,” as they like to say here in the UK! 

Hope to see you next year in Brum!

Beth at the Photographers Dining Club in London on April 1st

March 27 2015

Beth is very excited to have been invited to curate an evening on Discovering and Communicating Your Brand at the Photographers Dining Club at the Proud Archivist in London on April 1st. Joined by her clients, photographers Tom Parker and Squire Fox, Beth will be speaking as well as participating in an extended Q & A about the branding process, how it works, and how these two photographers have grabbed hold of their careers by working from the inside out.


The Dining Club marries two of our favorite yummy subjects: food and photography! Participants sit down for a dinner while discussing critical subjects in photography in talks given by leaders in the field. All in all, it’s a very chic event, which sold out in the first two hours! Never fear, though, as we will be posting excerpts from the event on our website in the near future, so stay tuned!

If you were not able to get a seat at the the Dining Club but still would like to meet with Beth, she will be meeting with clients old and new while she is in London. We are taking bookings until April 15th

Please contact studio@mercurylab.com to book your appointment.

See you soon!
