Exclusive Discount Codes for Photographers
Here are my recommendations (with promo codes) for kit to buy for your studio...
My studio lighting of choice is Pixapro - easy to use, reliable, great battery life and superb customer service. I use Pika200s and their Octoboxes, Stripboxes and Snoots.
For a 10% discount, use promo code SD10PIX
For fill light on location, you can't beat Rotolight for continuous lighting. We use Aeos and Neo on all our natural light events for very handy fill.
For a wide selection of styles and sizes, take a look at Kate Backdrops. I use their Fine Art fabric backdrops.
For a 10% discount, use promo code FINCH10
For high end, luxury backdrops, take a look at Hand Painted Backdrops - the choice of many professionals, you can either buy ready made or have one commissioned to your exact specifications by Slav, the owner.
If you are thinking about joining an association, do take a look at The Guild of Photographers. Professional or enthusiast, they will help you get the most from your camera with support, training, webinars, workshops, networking, insurance, discounts and one of the best competitions in the country. They are friendly and supportive with an excellent, active facebook group of like minded photographers.
For a £10 discount, use promo code REFKBZRPV3JGY
Also, take a look at Societies for another great association with plenty going on, free competitions, webinars and one of the largest photography conventions in Europe.
The Photography Show
One of the biggest photography shows in the world, held at Birmingham NEC in March, this event is not to be missed. With a wealth of talks, stands, demos and networking on offer, you will be sure to find something of interest.

I use Zenfolio for both my websites and find it very easy to set up with various templates for you to choose from. They are set up specifically for photographers.
