Kudos to Nikon NPS (Nikon Professional Service)

Sadly its not very often that a company makes me want to post a message here for positive reasons 🙂   But for the second time I am going to give a shout out to Nikon for their fantastic service and attention to detail.

After last Sundays wedding our 105 VR lens stopped working properly, it was working fine apart from the macro feature and as you know I love the close-ups at weddings. I noticed this on Monday morning when doing our weekly equipment test, Its not surprising that these things go wrong because of the constant use they get which is exactly why we test everything weekly.

So, Monday at 11am I emailed my contact at Nikon Richmond and explained the problem, I was told to send it in which I did at 4pm Monday, Tuesday morning I received an update to say that my lens had arrived and was being reviewed.  I had explained that I was only 3 days away from my last wedding and said that if possible I would LOVE it back for Friday Morning before 1pm,  Our wedding tomorrow is only 1 mile from hope and our son could have dropped it up to us.

This morning at 11am it was delivered back to me having been fully repaired, I have tested it and its perfect,

So my lens was repaired and with Nikon for only 24 Hours,  how fantastic is that,  Nikon UK certainly know how to look after their professionals and I am very grateful.

Since moving to Nikon we have confidently recommended Nikon to our workshop clients and once again I am proved right by a great company that we are proud to be associated with and very pleased that they will continue to supply us with fantastic equipment for the foreseeable future .

Thanks Rob and all at Nikon,

Jules

Calm before the storm :-)

Ok not really a storm but you get the drift if it,  So far 2010 has been a wonderful year for us at Julian Porter Photography, that would be Sue and I then!  We have photographed 5 amazing weddings, 2 at Rhinefield house which is a very popular venue for us, and 3 new venues, the first in January was the White Star Tavern in oxford street Southampton which made an interesting wedding venue,   The came Rhinefield with Donald and Leanne, Leanne has now been posted to Afganistan so our thoughts are constantly with her, the third was a new venue for us, Treworgie Barton  in Cornwall with Dan and Marie and it was an amazing day, then came our second Rhinefield/Highcliffe wedding with Seb and Carrie which was fab and then another new venue, Great Fosters in Surrey with Jonathan and Emma which was an outstanding venue and a great day, we have another Great Fosters wedding next year and we are already looking forward to it.  I have linked all of those with some photographs if you would like to take a peak.

Since Jonathan and Emma’s wedding we have been taking a break  ha ha ha!  well a break from weddings but we now have 6 to do in the next 21 days and we are both totally excited about them, again we have  a mix of new venues along with some that we have shot lots of times,

Our first of next weeks weddings is a new venue Hedsor House in Taplow bucks, Sue and I visited there a few weeks back and it looks amazing, then we are at a very popular venue for us Lainston House in Winchester which will be amazing as always, and then we are off to Chilworth Manor which we love and is only 2 minutes from our studio and then the Barn at Bury Court which we have worked at before but not for a couple of years and quite honestly I had forgotten how pretty it is there, then its off to the Domus in Beaulieu which I have worked at before a long time ago with another photographer so its another first for us and we are both looking forward to it, then our last wedding will be with Jonathan and Sarah at Northbrook Park in Farnham which is another wonderful new venue for us.

So as you can see we have a very busy time during April and we cant wait to start, as well as our weddings we are obviously busy with everything else we photograph, you can check that out using the links on the right either on our other blogs or our facebook group.

This is my first post without photos for a while but you can click on the links to check out a few,   Have a wonderful Easter and check back soon to see some more amazing wedding from Jules and Sue x

Our Workshops

As most of you know, Sue and I also run very successful training workshops on most subjects from getting to know your new DSLR camera through to specialised subjects such as marketing and photographing weddings.

Yesterday we ran a one 2 one Boudoir photography workshop well actually it was a one 2 two workshop because Iain and Louise both joined us and because they were from the same studio we did both together as one workshop.

We had a great day starting at 08:30 and finishing at 5pm and we were all totally shattered, We had 2 great models, Amy and Ruth, we have worked with them both several times and as always they were great.

Looking at the photo’s briefly this morning, I am delighted with them and know that Iain and Louise will be too, I will post a few later over on our Boudoir website.

Please let us know if your interested in a boudoir workshop, we would love to see you.

Jules
