Project Planning

Let me start with a bit of backstory. In 2018 I had two projects running. One was Project365 which as the name might tell you, was a photo-a-day project. The other was the T-shirt Project, where I took three t-shirts to every studio shoot I did and asked the model to style them with whatever…

Bath time at Wolfe

Last weekend was my first time in a studio this year, and what a way to kick off 2020. We had a beautiful model in the form of Fay Noir, a fantastically designed set by Caroline, and the technical team of Andrew and Alan to keep things running smoothly. The workshop was split into three…

Preparation

Unlike the previous couple of weeks, I’ve not been behind the camera this week so I’ve got no experiments to share with you. What I have for you instead is a little look into what goes into my preparation for a photo-shoot. Tomorrow I will be heading to Wolfe Cottage Studio for what will be…

Playing with 'Gels' – Part Two

A quick look back. . .

So Christmas is behind us and the end of year approaches. It’s that time when we look back upon the last twelve months and reflect upon what the year has been like. Looking back I think 2019 has been a pretty good year. It’s had its challenges though nothing insurmountable. From the photography viewpoint it’s…

Push Yourself

“Do or do not. There is no try.” – Yoda “To achieve your goals you have to push yourself out of your comfort zone. You have to take a leap of faith that it will work out. You have to believe in yourself. Be firm in your choices and take risks. Sometimes you will get…

The Beauty of Print

So I hadn’t update my print portfolio in quite some time and decided it was time to get some of the photographs I’ve taken over the last couple of years actually printed. Hence I spent a couple of hours going through my files and picking out my favourite shots to get printed.
