My first time lapse

Lock down means I can only do product photography but no shoots involving people. I have decided to learn a new skill which I will be able to use with my product but also landscapes. This is my first attempt, its not perfect but it meant I could learn from my mistakes I also learnt to stay patient and always take a flask and chocolate! This is made from 301 single photographs taken over 24 minutes.

Lockdown 2.0 – I can still shoot your products!

So I drank one too many Vodkas on Saturday after hearing the news of another the lock down. I knew it was coming but still felt surprised when it was announced, so now like everyone else I have come to terms with the fact that I can’t do anything about it and just have to make the best of the situation like last time but still it’s so arrrrgggghhhh!

I can’t have people in my studio but I can continue to do product photography, if you have a product or products you sell online and are looking for some cut out or life style shots then please get in touch on: 01206 511986 Please leave a message if I don’t answer and I will ring you back.

You can drop your product off to my studio in Colchester or send via courier and the same to get them back to you.

Various products shot and cut out on to a white background or shot and cut out on to a clear transparent layer. Shots taken for use on websites and in brochures.

Brighton in the Autumn

A couple of days away by the sea was the perfect way to recharge in the middle of a pandemic! I’ve always liked taking pics of old sea side towns in the winter and have a soft spot for Brighton and the Sussex coast.

The Scallop at Aldeburgh

Is one of my favourite sculptures, designed by local artist Maggi Hambling dedicated to Benjamin Britten (composer who spent much of his life in Aldeburgh). It stands approx 15 feet high and can be found on the beach just up from Aldeburgh town. I love how the light changes how it looks, how clouds can darken the shadows and the sun can make the surface glimmer. As I stood setting up my camera children scurried and peaked out from under it, couples leaned up to take a selfie against it and families gathered around it.

Photography studio is open for business…

Babies head is between parents head laying down facing the camera, the parents are kissing his cheeks either side.

and I have a new website for my family photography.

One of the good things to come out of this strange and worrying time is that I have had time to focus on one of my websites and with fantastic IT support from Tony Merryfield I have created a new site for The Family Photographer. Please take a look if you want to book a shoot or have any questions about Covid 19 (you will see info on each page of the website).
