Getting outside with your camera

Getting outside with your camera

I love taking photos of nature and gardens, and outside.  I must admit I am a bit more keen on the spring and summer when it warms up a bit, although I don’t mind getting out with my camera if its really misty, frosty or snowy because you can get some interesting shots.   What do […]

I had a request to do a photo shoot for  https://www.further.co.uk/  who were doing an article for Adrian Flux.  The brief was to shoot Emma Balaam, head of operations for the RS Owners Club and also the owner of a beautiful classic Ford.  I don’t know much about classic cars I have to admit but […]

Its a frosty morning

Its a frosty morning

This morning it is really cold and everything has a really heavy frost covering it, so when we took the dog out I grabbed my camera to get a few shots.  It was so foggy still that it was pretty bleak looking!  But I got a few nice shots still.

Smash Cake Shoot

Smash Cake Shoot

Smash Cake shoots are such fun!  It’s a great way to mark your little ones first birthday and this little one was fabulous.  She was a little wary of getting stuck in to start with, but once she tasted the icing she was off!  She was a little star, happy first birthday xx

Puppy Shoot

Puppy Shoot

Cute puppy alert!!  Finlay came round for his puppy shoot the other day and was very excited.  I had not anticipated how fast he would be moving! When you see cute puppy pictures what you don’t see is the photographer grappling round on their knees for an hour to get the shot! To be fair […]

Hanbury Manor – Hertfordshire Wedding Photography

Hanbury Manor in Hertfordshire is a beautiful venue to get married at and Fran and Scott had a fabulous day.  There were seven flower girls and page boys of varying ages who did a fantastic job on the day, even walking all the way down the aisle!  We managed to take advantage of a break […]

St Andrews Church Light Trails – Essex

I thought I’d experiment with some light trails this evening, I picked in front of St Andrews Church in Hornchurch, Essex  before it got too dark so you can still see St Andrews Church to add some background interest. They came out okay and it was quite fun to do, although I did feel a […]

Houses of Parliament. Photographed from the South Bank, London.

Just another to add to my London photos.  Taken from the south bank this one has the Houses of Parliament in the distance, the London Eye on the left and one of the old street lamps that I love lining the walkway along the Thames.

Houses of Parliament

Another photo walk in London, and this time my model was the Houses of Parliament.  Very photogenic I thought! I love the old architecture in London and could photograph it all day long!     Then a bit of walk around Chelsea and a very pretty little street with a bicycle chained up – even […]
