2022 is such an exciting year for us! Back in January 2020, we introduced an online Xperience membership and looking back, thank goodness we did.

Our first Face to Face is booked and WE ARE EXCITED!!! The X team, members and our trade partners will be getting together on the 24th January for our first Business Development session since 2020!

Xperience Myths Part 1

We are regularly asked the same questions so lets answer some Xperience myths.

I am just starting my business, can I join? – ABSOLUTELY! We have a proven track record for helping businesses get off the ground and our Re-Strat programmes are designed for just that!

Do I need to have a studio? – NO! We have members working from all sorts of places! We recommend a viewing room but if you don’t have one now, we can work around it.

Do I need to be UK based? NO! The introduction of online options opened The Xperience up to the world. In fact, we reach as far as New Zealand so distance is no object!

December 2020

Focus in Lockdown The world is in Lockdown, so what now for photographers? As a business development group, we will not stop working on our businesses because let us face it, when else would we get this time? We have doubled the meetings to make sure that we all stay positive and focussed on the big re-start whenever that might be. Our community has always been important to us, but it seems more important than ever to navigate this together.

Christmas Madness!

If you are a photographer in the thick of the festive season madness, you might need to hear these words – KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, NOT LONG TO GO! It makes the rest, the food and possibly the bubbles even more worthwhile at the other end!
