I passionately believe that every milliner has within them the ability to take great photographs. My job is to enable that.
Jon Busby, Co-founder – The Portrait Kitchen.
At London Hat Week 2020, Anjee and I were invited to give a talk about millinery photography. We shared some easy to do tips as well as constructive critiques of hat images that our audience submitted to us. We have recently done a similar talk to the Milliners Guild in the USA.
We had nearly 100 milliners attend our three talks from all over the world. What was really interesting was the interaction with many milliners submitting additional questions via chat. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive and we enjoyed helping milliners improve their photographs.
There is clearly an appetite from milliners to learn and develop their photography skills which got us thinking. How can we share our knowledge about hat photography to help the global millinery community? So we created ‘Ask.’
