This is Reportage & This is Reportage: Family Christmas Party 2021!

A couple of weeks ago we had our Christmas Party in London, UK, and it was such a great night! For reasons known to the entire world, we were unable to do the party in 2020, so it felt amazing to be able to come together again this year. Very sadly, just a few days before the event, the UK covid travel rules changed, meaning lots of our European members were unable to make it over – such a shame! – but those that managed to come along all had a super (and perhaps, quite drunken…!) time 🙂

Thanks so much to the fab Tom Beynon for capturing the night so brilliantly for us! Here’s a selection of Tom’s images from the night:

Podcast Episode 96: This is Kevin Kheffache

A real pleasure to have the fab Kevin Kheffache on the Podcast for episode 96! As well as being a brilliant wedding photographer (with 11 Reportage Awards and a Story Award to his name), Kevin is also the co-founder of Doc Day, with his wife, Annie Kheffache. It’s an honour to have This is Reportage partnered with Doc Day – the conference that’s all about documentary – and I was lucky enough to have been asked to speak at the inaugural event; it was brilliant, and I can’t wait for Doc Day 2022, where speakers include two of our This is Reportage Photographers of the Year (Fabio Mirulla and Liam Shaw of York Place Studios)! Kevin shares so much in the episode, including:

how he came to be a photographer
how Kevin and Annie got the idea for Doc Day
wed-aches
whether there’s any competitiveness between himself and his very talented wedding photographer wife, Annie Kheffache
our Netflix synopsis game
his personal highlights of the conference, what he’s looking forward to most about Doc Day 2022
and much more…

There are just a handful of tickets left for Doc Day 2022 now (which has the fab date of 22/02/2022) – grab one of the last tickets at docday.international.
