Clem is due to give birth very soon and wanted some photographs to remember this special time. Her three Yorkshire Terriers accompanied us on our walk (the eldest is 13!), and she even managed to persuade hubby to join her in some shots :-) Here’s a selection of my favourite frames.
I was recently commissioned to photograph Lottie, a gorgeous one year old Australian Labradoodle, and her older brother Dougal, a delightful 9 year old Lowchen. Lottie has boundless energy so getting her to stay in place for more than a few seconds was quite a challenge, but I’m really pleased with the final shots (thank goodness for dog treats!)
I was recently assigned to shoot a portrait for Accounting Technician Magazine, but when I arrived at the offices I realised there was very little natural light and not much visual interest. Despite the heavens having just opened, I wondered if there might be a roof we could shoot on…and hey presto, not only was there a roof, but there was a lovely man on the reception desk who entrusted me with the key, without getting out an infra red scanner or sniffer dog - I love it when common sense takes over! The shots worked out really well and even ended up being relevant to the focus of the article which was great to see.
I was recently booked for a shoot with IAM Magazine, to document a day with two trainee drivers from Surrey Fire and Rescue. The job involved heading out in a fire engine on some ‘blue light runs’, something which was a real privilege to witness. Unfortunately being thrown around a bit whilst trying to frame and focus caused some slight travel sickness but I just managed to hold it together! The chaps were lovely and I have a new found respect for the drivers, it’s a very tough job that requires an extremely high degree of concentration.
