About the session

While we all know that photography and videography are technically connected, sometimes they couldn't feel more different.

However, for Hugh Hamilton, it was a natural progression from one medium to another. As cameras developed, so too did his career.

Join Hugh as he discusses the importance of collaboration, team building, and how embracing movement has led to a thriving career in videography and improved his still photography.

Praise for Head On Spotlight:

"Great advice and information - it could have been 2 hours, easily.."

"It was great hearing Julian's backstory and how he was so open about his approach and techniques. Also great to see the photographs, obviously, but it was his narrative about them that made it special."

"Fiona's information was very practical and realistic. I particularly liked her advice to "call yourself a photographer". Hearing about her own journey was also very useful..."
