You may be aware that Rob Booker, Phil Barber & myself, all established Leeds-based snappers, joined forces last year to pool our skills into 3B Media.
[FYI: The 3B’s come from the B’s of our nicknames ‘Barber’, ‘Booker’ & ‘Barns’]
Our common goal has been to create an exciting, forward-thinking company with 3 major goals:
1. To run fun workshops train & develop the stills & video skills of photographic enthusiasts & aspiring pro’s
2. To take on interesting commissions in photography & video that we wouldn’t be able to approach as standalone photographers
3. To inspire one another & the world of photography through our 3B Media website.
So after running successful training courses, we’ve spent these past months beavering away at coding our vision into a working website.
Let me show you around the key pages…
After studying the photography training market around us in Yorkshire there appears to a lack of training for amateurs & aspiring professional photographers. We’ve all been on or heard horror stories about training courses with too many delegates / sharing too little equipment / fighting over too few models / not having enough teachers to go around. So at 3B we decided to run a few simple courses for small groups, with all the B’s on hand for a more one-on-one experience.
The courses we’ve currently offering include:
And there are more details about each course in the Workshops section of the site if you’re interested in joining us to sharpen your skills!
The next major section of the site has been the development of the 3B Pages.
The 3B pages are the evolving, ever-expanding hub to our website, where the reader will find bucket loads of useful information and inspiration. The Pages link to the 3B Photo & Video galleries – for inspiring 3B stills & video commissions – the 3B Friday page – where every week (guess which day) we post professional techniques, tricks, and ideas on how to take your photography / business further – the 3B Amazon Store, detailing the gear we use & rate and finally the 3B Blog – our electronic signpost, pointing out news, changes within the site (such as new projects added to the commissions page) and new 3B Fridays posts.
So we hope you enjoy our shiny new site. It’s still a work in progress and will grow and change as time goes on. But it’s there for you and we’d love you to follow & comment on the blog, drop us a line if you’re interested in using us for a commission or fancy joining us on one of our upcoming workshops!
