5 Golden Rules

Being a Manfrotto Ambassador, they sometimes ask me to write bits for their School of Xcellence. They recently asked me about my 5 Golden Rules of Photography and it took me a while to actually figure out what to write.
I have never liked ‘rules’ and that will become clear once you read what I wrote for Manfrotto

You can find it here: Manfrotto School of Xcellence

I’d love to know what your favourite ‘rule’ is, or any opinions you have on them

Monopods are in Fashion!

Recently, Manfrotto asked me to write an article on the use of monopods in Fashion Photography.

Even though I am a Manfrotto ambassador, I have considered this such a great honour, and I have received some great feedback from it!

You can read it at the following link: Manfrotto School of Xcellence

It would be great to hear what you think about it also πŸ™‚

The amount of exposure has been amazing. My own article has even come up as a sponsored, and suggested, ad on my own personal facebook. That was a treat to see on my timeline!

#ManfrottoUK Ambassador

I am really delighted, ecstatic, so happy, dead chuffed (and all that) to announce that I am now a Manfrotto Ambassador!

I am so amazed that I am a part of this Manfrotto family/community as Lara Jade, who is a huge inspiration to me and my photography) is also an ambassador.

I look forward to what my future now holds for me with this huge company behind me πŸ™‚

Notion 065: End Paper

Notion magazine always do a preview section within their magazines all centered around LFW and Fashion Week. This time they have done it slightly differently though.
Their LFW edit and preview is a back page spread of my fave images that I have taken at LFW for Notion! What a fabulous surprise!!
I think it looks amazing and I can’t wait to see it in print! (downloaded the magazine on my iPad as I was too excited to see what it looked like and what had been written!)
I have to say a huge thank you to Seb Law, online editor of Notion mag, for putting this spread together and his kind words!

Here’s to many more amazing fashion weeks with Notion!


Amanda Furness Lookbook

It is always nice to see what gets done with my images, and here is an example! The designer of a lookbook I photographed sent me through some images of her finalised lookbook. And here are some sneak peeks of it.
I think it looks gorgeous!



The Creative Book

The lovely people over at The Creative Book have finally launched their Beta site, and I have finally got round to making a proper profile with them.

They featured me a long long time ago on their blog when I had first covered LFW, and it’s safe to say my work is tonnes better since then and I have a better sense of direction and where I want to be in my career.

But enough about me, more about them. Every creative should definitely check them out and consider at least making a basic and free profile with them as I have a feeling this could be a brilliant platform when fully underway!

7×5 Photo Profile

The people at 7×5 photo were kind enough to ask for an essay and images from me so they could feature me as a profiled photographer!

In it I speak a bit about my self portrait project that I am always looking to carry on.

Please check it out and spread the word of ‘Fordtography’. You can view my photo profile here on Kaye Ford – Photo Profile

The Creative Book

The lovely people in charge of “The Creative Book” have interviewed me and featured me up on their blog!

Please check it out, give it a read and let me know what you think!
