Over thirty franchisees attended our Portrait Training Day in Ware, Hertfordshire at Fanhams Hall Hotel headed up by David MacDonald and Elaine Sheppard. It was an action packed day of photography with models, presentation of new marketing material, critiques of franchisees work, and the announcement of a new contract for Barrett and Coe: To exclusively provide the photography for a Family Portrait Experience being sold in a national retailer with 500 stores across the UK.
This promotion goes live on October 6th. and will create large numbers of paid family sittings for our franchised photographers. Where we don’t have a franchisee the sittings will be offered to past students who have obtained the required standards. Together with our Boots contract this will mean that Barrett and Coe family sittings will be on sale in 750 retail stores nationwide running up to Christmas.
We were filmed for a TV programme for BBC/ITV whilst at the Portrait Training day yesterday, you can see me being interviewed above!
