The NineDots Gathering is in Leeds on 14th & 15th November. We also will be having pre-registration and casual drinks on 13th November.

The NineDots Gathering has the perfect blend of inspiring keynote presentations on our main-stage, practical teaching and master-classes, expert business advice, the latest and greatest products on offer from our exhibiting sponsors, and plenty of social time to hang out, relax and connect with other wedding photographers from around the world. We wanted to craft a unique experience and vibe in the UK for wedding photographers which is the perfect mix of inspiration, education and socialising. You’ll have plenty of opportunity to hang out, drink with and ask questions to all our presenters – and beat them at ping-pong!! There’s no green room at the NineDots Gathering!

It doesn’t matter what stage you are at in your career, we have people that have been photographing weddings for over 20 years to people that have just made the leap in to their first year as a full time photographer. We truly believe we have crafted an event where everyone will gain knowledge and learn useful tools from our speakers and each other. Over two days, you’ll make friends for life, connect with like-minded photographers from around the world, share incredible times together and leave inspired, skilled-up and ready to take your photography and business to the next level as part of the NineDots community!
