Bottle digging with my dad…

As a child I used to go bottle digging with my dad, we knew of a place a wooded area with some earth mounds where we found old bottles. It used to be so exciting like digging for treasure together. I loved sharing that experience with my dad and I love these old bottles they are not worth much in monetary terms but they are priceless to me.

Boudoirvous

It’s not compulsory to get your kit off for a boudoir shoot! I have plenty of clients who come and have their hair and make up professionally styled and have some gorgeous portraits taken of themselves for all kinds of reasons.

If you want to find out more please contact me via my website or email me at lindsay@lindsaywakelinphotography.com

A portrait of Nick aka @lifeofaninkedman

I personally like Tattoo’s but I know a lot of folks who don’t. My daughter who is one of the sweetest people I know (yes, I would say that) has quite a few Tattoo’s and has at times been picked on and called names and bullied just because of how she has chosen to decorate her body.

Here are a few shots from my session with model Nick Hewitt taken the other day at my studio in Colchester.

 

Official opening of Turner Road Diagnostic Centre in Colchester.

I was really chuffed to be asked by the Diagnostic Centre in Colchester to provide some images for their walls in the new centre. This evening was the official opening so I took along my dad as my wing man. He looked so smart in his suit, thanks for coming with me dad. Another moment and memory to treasure.

 

Collecting backgrounds

This is me up a ladder over the weekend taking pics of the village grass, why you may ask? I got a few looks but was armed ready with a story should anyone ask!

Clients sometimes ask me if I can put together a composite image (made up of disparate or separate parts or elements), this week I am working on an image which is advertising a football agility tool so I needed a background image of good healthy grass. The grass at the football and rugby club are a bit worn and sparse this grass from Bentley Village green looked perfect. It’s always useful to collect images of the sky, clouds and textures to use for backgrounds so whenever I see something I get my camera to shoot it to add to my background collection.
