New Year celebrations might be over, but there’s still plenty to look forward to this January. This month, Europe’s largest all-welcome photographic convention will be held in Hammersmith, London. It’ll be hosted by The Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (or the SWPP), a worldwide association for professional and aspiring photographers. If you’re serious about taking photos of people, they should definitely be on your radar.
Running from Wednesday the 16th-Saturday the 19th of January, The Societies’ Photographic Convention and Trade Show is a four day gathering of photography enthusiasts and professionals, with ample opportunity to connect with fellow shutterbugs. There’ll be masterclasses, speakers, networking opportunities, and a trade show featuring some of the biggest names in the photography industry… and of course, that includes CEWE!
You’ll be able to find us at stands 9-11 and 14-16. We’ll be there every day, showing off our full range of photo books and a selection of wall art. We’ll have all of our available paper types, sizes and bindings on display, so if you’ve ever been curious, this is a great opportunity to view our full CEWE PHOTOBOOK range in person. Our stand will be manned by our helpful and knowledgeable team, who are always ready to answer your questions or just chat with like-minded people who love photography as much as we do!
Can’t make it to London this month? We’ll also be back at The Photography Show at the Birmingham NEC in March this year. We’ll be giving away free tickets over the coming weeks, so stay tuned for more information coming soon.
Why We’re The #1 Choice For Professional Photographers
- Photographic Paper Types
We often find that professional customers are discerning customers – after all, skilful photography demands skilful printing. That’s why for your best work, we always recommend our range of Photographic papers for your photo book. Available in Classic, Matte and Gloss, our Photographic papers from Fuji each weigh in at a luxurious 300gsm.
- Layflat Binding
All photo books printed with our Photographic paper types come with Layflat binding as standard. This means that your book will lie completely flat when opened, with no gap or gutter between the pages. Perfect for showcasing your best panoramic shots across a double page spread, ideal for landscapes and group photos at weddings.
- Traditional Silver Halide Printing Process
Our Photographic papers aren’t printed digitally. We use a traditional chemical process wherein the image is exposed onto paper using light and then developed, before bleaching, fixing and washing off the excess. The result is a much larger colour space, thanks to using a full light spectrum to expose the image.
- Upload Video with QR Codes
CEWE are the only company who offer QR code embedding into our photo books. This is particularly popular for wedding photo books, giving the option to add those all-important vows and speeches to your project.
- TIPA Award Winning
When you order a CEWE PHOTOBOOK, you order a product that has been voted the best photo book in the world by industry experts. Winning the TIPA Award for Best Photo Printing Service Worldwide was one of our highlights of 2018, and we’re thrilled to have our dedication to excellent print recognised by such a prestigious organisation.
About CEWE Professional
If you’re a professional (or aspiring professional!) photographer, you might want to consider upgrading to a CEWE Pro account. A Pro account will entitle you to various perks that are important to people who wish to use their photography for professional purposes.
- PDF to Book Functionality
We’re proud of our CEWE Design Software, but we’re also aware that many of you are also confident designers who prefer other software such as Adobe® InDesign®. Our PDF to Book offering allows you to use our free template generator to create your book in your preferred software, before converting your work, ready to be printed in a CEWE PHOTOBOOK.
