Family photography on Mersea Island beach

Spending so much time in my studio it’s a refreshing change to go and shoot outside. The beach is a great place to head with young children you don’t need many props just let them have fun and explore as long as it’s not too cold or chucking it down with rain it’s perfect for getting natural shots. Take a look at my site The Family Photographer to find out more.

One daughter, a vape one fan and one light

Sometimes I get so caught up with working and doing Photography for other people I forget to take time out to just be playful, get creative and experiment with ideas. I have decided that I need to do this more than I have been, so with the help of my daughter ‘Hope’ we are going to plan some creative shoots. Here are a few from today, I just wanted to start simple and take some time to experiment with light and darkness, shape and form. We used a black backdrop, one light sometimes a piece of white card (as a reflector) a fan and a vape! As is often the case with Photography sometimes the unplanned shots are more interesting than the shots you intended to take so I included a few below.

Portraits of Tim Andrews – Over The Hill Project

Tim Andrews- Fragile 1

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!!!”

Barking mad at the South Weald Show

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.

Pooch shoots at my studio in Colchester

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.
