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).
Bobby needed some commercial shots for Winmau Darts brochure, what a pleasure to meet his wife and granddaughter too.
I am lucky to have a few photographer friends so when we want to update our own images online we spend a day messing about like little kids in the studio, experimenting and playing around. Thanks Jack what a work out but worth it, I think we got some good ones of each other. This was me trying to look like a corporate animal(which I am not naturally) and ending up dissolving into pulling faces and relaxing into this pose.
I just wanted to let everyone know that I do hire my studio out to budding enthusiasts and pro photographers. If you are not sure about how to set up studio lighting for your shoot then I can show you, I offer tuition and can help you get set up before your client arrives. Find out more here…
Years ago we used to have rescue dog, her name was ‘Zena’ (her name at the rescue I didn’t have the heart to change it) she was a black lab mix, a big softie, sweetest nature and the best ever companion. We still miss her today she was very much part of our family and I have always wanted to give something back to the rescue to say thank you for our lovely furry friend. So I approached the National Animal Welfare Trust and asked them if I could take pics of some of their rescue dogs for a 2018 Calendar to help raise funds for the rescue which is in Clacton, Essex. They do such an amazing job of looking after and rehoming dogs, cats and other animals if you are interested in ordering a Calendar and supporting this great cause please contact them or drop me a line. All funds go to the NAWT rescue centre in Clacton.
Here is Arthur one of the rescue dogs who has now found his forever home.
I know it’s been a while since I added a blog post, after a busy summer I took some time off and lost myself on a boat on the Norfolk Broads and loved a week away on Rhodes cycling to deserted beaches and eating lots of greek salad. Now I’m back having switched one of my labels from being a ‘smoker’ to being a ‘vaper’ I have also had my haircut and am seriously reconsidering the gym!
So a little piece of news ( which I am really chuffed about) is Nicholas McCarthy (Pianist) has chosen to use one of my images to use on his new album cover Echoes which is out now he is also on tour see more info here.
