I first photographed Tim a few years ago for his Over The Hill project , I was delighted when he agreed to another shoot last week. Tim who has Parkinsons Disease started ‘Over the hill’ in 2008 and over the last 8 years he has been Photographed by over 400 Photographers. When I received an email to say that he was wrapping up the project I emailed him straight back and asked if he would be interested in posing for me again.
It’s rare as a Photographer to have the opportunity of someone offering to pose to be completely open minded and flexible, Tim is such a great sport an artist in his own right he is such a charming interesting person to spend time with. I wanted to explore my ideas around visually framing images of fragility and vulnerability he soon wrote back, “Dark, moody, feathers, eggs, naked, bubble wrap??? Are you kidding? Of course l am up for it!!!”
The latest edition of Wedding Flowers and Accessories is out, it was a pleasure to take pics of so many beautiful flowers, so happy I don’t suffer from Heyfever! Here are a few images from the shoot, to go to the florists website click on the image or for more information contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org
I tried doing a bit of video directly through twitter the other day, this is Thomasin Newton at my studio she is a colour and fashion stylist. We are working on a new exciting venture together so I got her just to chat briefly to me about accessories so I could try out the video. It actually turns out that it doesn’t appear in my gallery on my phone but on my PC I was able to copy and embed the code to my blog, so I will definitely try using it again in the future.

Sometimes people want to have their picture taken and have a copy of the print on the day at the event, no messing around with trying to find your image on a gallery or other website and then ordering it a few days later. So we now attend corporate events and charity balls and offer an instant print service for our clients who want to offer their guests a little something extra. Of course you get the same superb service and attention to detail you just get it quicker! For more info please email us at pictureourevents.co.uk
We attended the South Weald show and offered dog owners the chance to have their picture taken with their dog, we also took a long a selection of neck ties and accessories. It was at times challenging but we had a giggle and the owners were chuffed with the end results.
Oh they were so cute and well behaved! I have to admit I do think they look rather dandy in their tie and bandanna. Apparently he looks after her and is the sensible one so it says a bit a bout their personality, I have a few different styles of neck wear which some people love others are just looking for a really nice portrait of their dog either way is fine we always have fun at our doggy shoots.

One of my websites is called Boudoirvous it’s a site dedicated to taking pictures of women. The shoots are all different depending on my client, recently I have been playing around with different textures to overlay onto the image to give a softer more painterly feel to them here is an example taken from one of my most recent shoots.
When you book your your head shot portrait at my studio you can choose to have your hair and make-up styled by my small but very talented team. Rosemary in this picture chose to have her make-up applied by my make-up artist.
