26th September 2019 – Leeming House Lake District


Wed 26th Sep – 10am till 4pm

This event is for non-Sony Alpha Camera owners. Please note: The £50 booking fee is non-refundable

The Sony team are offering a chance to let pro photographers experience their alpha full-frame mirrorless system in the stunning Lake District venue of Macdonald Leeming House. Leeming House is one of the finest 4-star hotels in the Lake District, offering luxury and comfort in beautiful surroundings. Set in 22 acres of beautiful grand gardens in the countryside of Cumbria it has breath-taking scenery and direct access to the shores of Ullswater. After a run-through of the menu and features, there will be a wedding location shoot as well as a Profoto flash demo specific to wedding photography.

Fully Booked

Many working pros are intrigued by the Sony Alpha offering – full-frame mirrorless cameras that are more than meeting the demands of full-time professional photographers.   Brent and I loaned some Sony kit for a month and it resulted in a full-scale switch after testing it across weddings, portraits, boudoir, and some commercial shoots.
Reading specs and reviews is interesting but nothing beats using a system and testing features such as Eye AF and the electronic silent shutter yourself.  This is why we have organised the Sony days to allow people to experience the Sony Alpha system for themselves.
Sony will be bringing the full range of Alpha series camera bodies including the new Sony 7RIV as well as the full range of native lenses including the much celebrated 135 f1.8.
In the morning we will run through the menu system and explain features such as:
• Sony Customisation
• The Autofocus System
• Eye AF
• Face Detection and Registration
• Focus Magnifier
• The Dual Shutter System
Following lunch, which will be provided, we will head into the grounds with a bride and groom and allow you to have a go at shooting the Sony system.  We will also present Profoto B10's & A1's with flash and continues light scenarios common to wedding photographers.
Spaces are limited to 20 per day for the 2 days.
