It's not often that small, day-long independent photography events, never mind conferences, spring up in Wales - so when we learned of the Fay Godwin Conference happening in Machynlleth 11th March, we immediately booked a place.

The venue was the lovely Moma Machynlleth, a converted Chapel, just a few doors from the Penrallt Gallery Bookshop where the organisers of the event Diane and Geoff stock an eclectic mix of books and, tucked in a room at the rear, the best collection of photography books you'll likely find in Wales! Seriously - go there and try and resist walking out without buying one!

Diane and Geoff kindly agreed to Ffoton recording some of the sessions on the day to share on our website and, over coming days, we'll add more of that below.
