Purple Apple Marketing Awards

Purple Apple Marketing Awards



On 4 May 2017 we had the pleasure of providing an Open Photo Booth for the annual Purple Apple Marketing Awards at the historic London venue, The Brewery. These are the only awards which recognise and reward effective shopping and town centre marketing within the UK retail property sector.


It was a glamorous affair with seating of over 500 guests hosted by Gemma Cairney. Gemma is well known on TV, radio and social media, providing up-to-date coverage and thought provoking entertainment across the UK’s alternative music, fashion and art scenes.


The Photo Team were pleased to be invited again to be one of the highlights of the evening. The event’s main sponsor was MK illumination who create exceptional conceptual festive lighting and decoration for their clients. MK create tailor, specially handcrafted illumination to suit their client’s wishes and thus strengthen their brand and image and independently run subsidiaries in 28 countries.


Due to the sponsorship, we provided a green screen that transferred the guests to three famous landmarks in London which had been MK’d!


The digital photo booth was in full swing with many people wanting a photo and a keepsake of the shot to take home. It was a great time to reunite and take photos with former/new clients, meet new people and celebrate retail property achievements all across the UK.


The guests chose the background of their choice and created their own props by using our illuminated “Photo” sign as well as showing off their well deserved awards with their glam attire and best smiles. The photographer got them ready to pose so their photo looked fun and different and voila here is what we produced that evening…

The secrets of successful photography

The secrets of successful photography


We At The Photo Team understand how much hard work needs to be put into a new business. We have been running successfully for just over half a decade and this hasn’t come without its challenges but most of all the feeling of great success through determination and motivation. The key thing to note for any new business is to give it time, persevere, understand your competitors and to be flexible.

Here are The Photo Team’s top tips on the secrets of a successful photography business:



Every business needs time. Miracles dont happen over night. Research needs to be done on what type of clients you want to attract, what photography market you want to target and how you will promote your business. You also need to have the funds to back up the business and invest in the right photography equipment and the right marketing tools.


Understand your competitors

We live in a competitive world and therefore understanding what your competitors are doing is essential. What is their niche? How have they become successful? The most important thing is not to COPY them. Find your own unique selling point and create a business that is different to the rest.



If at first you dont succeed then try again. Every business has its downfalls within its first year and this is natural as you will be going trough trial and error and finding your feet. Dont be put off by the long hours that need to be put in because eventually you will reap what you will sow!



Once you have your set of clients then it is essential to be flexible as they say the customer is always right! Working with them and listening to their needs is the only way you are guaranteed to receive a booking from them again. Clients value a service that possess good communication skills, tailors to their needs and provides an all round professional service.


Good luck!

Nikon v Canon which house are you in?

Nikon v Canon which house are you in?


DSLR stands for digital single lens camera reflex. Your digital SLR camera has an option to determine how sensitive the camera sensor is to light.


DSLR’s are a top choice for anyone who wants to take their photography to the next level. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, a DSLR offers three key ingredients: manual controls, excellent picture quality and interchangeable lenses.


However what do you do when two famous brands go head to head on their DSLR cameras? How do you know what to choose? Here is a quick guide.



Low pass filters

Nikon eliminate the optical low pass filter and Canons focus on their megapixels and still use an optical low pass filter.


Autofocus speed

Both brands pretty much are equivalent to each other. Canon tends to have faster high-end DSLRs however when it comes to the more budget models, Nikon offers more speed.



With most Nikons they offer more battery life than a Canon.


Video focus

Canon were the first to offer great video quality. They were the first to develop a hybrid autofocus system allowing the camera to refocus while recording. Now Nikon have caught up and are on the same par as Canon’s best feature.



So ultimately which is better, we here you ask????


Canon and Nikon offer excellent cameras with great image quality. Both have improved over the years and next to each other practically provide the same as the other. It ultimately comes to down to the professional photographer and what best suits them. From our personal experience beginners should opt with a Nikon as they are slightly cheaper at this stage. However the more experienced you get you may find that the Canon is more suited to your needs due to its ability to capture photos as well as video better with autofocus and speed.


So why not experience both at the early stages and invest in what sits well with you and your needs. Our Fake Paparazzi certainly have!
