Big Crocodile on Tour - The Photography Show

I took Big Crocodile out on tour again this March, this time to the Photography Show at the NEC Birmingham. This show was massive, bigger than anything I had attempted to do before. A big risk for little me and Big Crocodile.

I joined forces with the brilliant Laurraine from Cake Smash Props and between us we made our space look awesome, friendly and professional.
We had a prime spot by the cafe and more importantly the toilets 

We shared the NEC with the Big Guns like Nikon, Panasonic, Go pro, Adobe etc etc and completely held our own. If I had thought about it more I would have been completely intimidated but we did it - and we doing it all again next year.

It was such an amazing experience, the moment Big Crocodile Photography Props grew up. We met some awesome people too. The team from The Photography Show really knew how to look after us - wine, cake, bacon butties - its doesn't take much but my experience was so much better than at other big shows I have taken Big Croc too. We also made some new buddies from SmugMug who kindly gave us some t shirts to sport in exchange for one of my hats.

I managed to get the PAMMY hat on a few guys too - and fingers crossed this will lead to a few more orders for my warmwear in the future. Possibly even a large request

As always I could not have done it without the amazing people I have helping me in the background, this time I had some lovely ladies help with knitting up stock, my ever patient printer (Hayling Print), my Dad who painted up many many crates for me, my gorgeous girls who even helped knit up some stock this time and of course my Man who is always so supportive of everything I do (except he still refuses to learn to knit)
Thank you The Photography Show
See you next year

Why Big Crocodile?

January 12, 2015 1 Comment

I often get asked why Big Crocodile? Well he is my second daughter's imaginary friend. He has been with us for years now but is slowly becoming a less frequent visitor. I enjoyed her stories of what he was up to so much that I did not want to forget him when she no longer needed him. He has therefore been honoured as my business identity. My daughters think that is brilliant.
