I can’t believe January has flown by so quickly! Here’s what ‘s been happening on the Memory Gate blogs:
What Where Who Weddings
We’ve posted only 5 posts in January due to an extremely busy time setting up other websites and attending the SWPP convention. We do however have a brand new contributor to the site. Deborah is our in house make-up artist and beauty specialist and so far has added three posts:
All three are defiantly worth a look for any 2010 bride.
Our most popular post of the month has been Who are the top wedding tweeters?
We are still looking for more contributors to the site site so if you are a wedding vendor who wants to promote either your own blog or website then drop us an email.
Photo Creative 365
The launch of this new site has proved to be very exciting and we’ve averaged over 100 visits a day!
With 31 posts this month I’m not going to list them all but these are the 5 most popular.
- Day 21 – 189 Ideas to improve your photography business
- Day 31 – End of the Month Fun – The iPad and Twitter
- Day 19 – Business school at the SWPP convention Part 6

For the last 6 days I’ve been attending the SWPP 2010 convention and tradeshow at Novotel London West – Hammersmith. After 2 days of business school, a full day of workshops with Doug Gordon and Mark Cleghorn, 3 days of the trade show and Masterclasses I’m pretty knackered!
Still there’s lots of ideas and products which we’ll be implementing to both Memory Gate and Redrosette in the coming weeks.
We have our PhotoCreative iPhone app ready to download for free. So far we’re nearly three weeks into the project and the content is getting better all the time. I will be continuing to post notes from the convention at PhotoCreative365. So far I’ve just about finished my notes from the business school.
Most exciting of all is that this week is Memory Gate’s 1st Birthday! We have a special treat for photographers at PhotoCreative365 which will be posted on the 21st of Jan.

It’s been a busy week for me but thankfully it’s mostly be spent in the warmth!
So far I have been making steady progress with my 365 projects and today I recorded at uploaded our first podcast which you can listen to by clicking the link below. Hopefully soon we’ll get it up and running on iTunes.
So far on my photo 365 project I’m 11 photos in and 4% done! Have a look at my progress by clicking the link below. Unsurprisingly there’s lots of pictures of snow!
We’re also waiting on two iPhone apps to be approved. Both will be free to download and I’ll let you know when they’re ready.
One of our shoots that didn’t get called off due to the weather was with rapper Sterling ‘Simion’ Swagga. Here’s a little preview from the shoot.
Last but not least Deborah has written her first post for What Where Who Weddings titled What is the perfect base for a perfect face?
This week we’re off to the Societies 2010 Photographic Convention so have a look PhotoCreative365.com for some daily updates.
Till next Monday!

Happy new year and welcome to the….erm….. Tennies, Tenties, Teenies or if you’re Australian …. ‘One-ders’
We have lots of projects in development at the moment so we have decided to set a few rules (for ourselves at least) in terms of what we post here at The Gatekeepers.
Monday is Blog Day – Expect to see all of Memory Gate’s news mainly being updated on Monday. This doesn’t mean that we won’t chuck a few other posts in there midweek from time to time though.
First Monday of the month is our Memory Gate Blog Digest – We currently have two other blogs running at the moment and we’ll give you a little taste of them each month.
These are our two other blogs –
What Where Who Weddings – Everything weddings. Tips, interviews, photos, ramblings and a touch of humour!
Photo Creative 365 – Michael’s brand new (and perhaps slightly ambitious) personal 365 photo project combined with daily creative posts.
We also have some new websites in development which we’re be officially launching from this blog later this month.

As I write this there is just a matter of hours left of the noughties. What better way to spend the last few hours than doing something a little creative!
As of today I have started a 365 project. The plan is to post something ‘creative and inspiring’ everyday for at least the next 365 days. Should be fun! Anyway click the link below to have a look……..
