foi 2009 FOCUS 2011 Shootout WinnerBack in March 2011 one of the biggest shows happened in the UK – FOCUS on Imaging in Birmingham! This was the first year that Westcott attended and of coarse, we couldn’t go without bringing something amazing! So, we planned another shootout. We hired models, brought sets, makeup – EVERYTHING – to provide attendees with an experience they will never forget!

Our Winner

We had a record number of images submitted for the contest and believe us when we say – it was a tough decision – but we came out in the end with a first place winner. And our winner is:

…apart from WOW, I’m speechless. I was focussed on the models – it was only when I saw the images on my computer at home I truly appreciated just how great the lighting was! The models were stars, and remained professional throughout – no simple task with so many eyes on them, I’m sure.┬áThe thing that stood out to me was the fact that Westcott gave photographers what they crave – great light and fantastic subjects to photograph. What more could we ask for?

CONGRATS!!!! Dade is a photographer out of Brighton, UK. If you are interested in seeing more of Dade’s work, you can visit Krysalis Photography online.

From start to finish of the show, people were lined up to get their shot, sitting on the floor to watch the seminars and taking as much photography education in as possible. We can honestly say the people at FOCUS were amazing! They totally made the show and we are so happy to be a part of it! A BIG THANK YOU goes out to JP Distribution for all their help as well as being an amazing distributor for us in the UK! We can’t wait until FOCUS 2012! SEE YOU THERE!
