SNAP: An international photography festival

"I firmly believe that the magic of fforest made SNAP and that's why we didn't hesitate in deciding to come back the following year."

-Laura Babb, founder of SNAP

Wedding & lifestyle photography festival, SNAP, was held at fforest in April this year (and on another two occasions before that). Founded by Laura Babb, the professional wedding photographer has created a photography retreat consisting of talks, workshops, live shoots and business sessions, all hosted within the 200 acre boundary of fforest farm.

These guys seemed to make use of every space fforest farm has to offer: Under the giant hat tipi, in our newly renovated project barn, outside & under canopies, inside the lodge barn, in our cosy little pub (where many a visitor prefers to dwell), in fields, under water, in the sauna... everywhere! It's a delight to see so many talented creatives using fforest spaces to inspire work & progress.

Wales's Instagram community. A page dedicated to the best photography and photographers of Wales. 

Finding inspiration for a good photo is hardly difficult in our part of the world, but capturing the true beauty of a Welsh landscape can be difficult. #DiscoverCymru features some of the best photography of Wales: Gower cliffs, Snowdonia across all seasons, rough seas, rolling hills, ancient towns and buildings... and all photographs submitted by the public. The page was started in 2015 by a man who believed photography from across Wales needed a platform of its own. The page currently has just under 25k followers, a growing community that is expanding daily. Above you'll see a few of our favourite images from photographers @matprice, @steffanllewelyn, @alex.davies, @ben_horder + more.

We at fforest are also very keen photographers of the Welsh countryside, especially the beautiful seafront that is right on our doorstep. Embracing the cool air of Winter or the sweet Summer heat, we have spent so many blissful days scouring the cliffs and caves of our surroundings, whatever the weather. There's always something new and beautiful to discover and capture.

Here's a selection of Instagram posts from @fforestchief, @coldatnight & the fforest elves.
