Tracy and Dean

This was my first attempt at a `bump` photo session. I had looked into it, using Google images and a few books to come up with some common poses and some experimental ones. I think in the end, all the images edited into black and white were the more successful images.

Elaine Ward

Elaine wanted a series of head shots to use for her acting portfolio and applications. This was the first time I`ve really done single portraits for an actors portfolio  , so there was a lot of lighting experimentation which I forewarned Elaine about!!? A few examples on the internet showed a blend of images ranging from…

Fruits of Nature

This was an event to celebrate natures harvest and how local fruits and traditions can be used to create products and foods. It was a family day incorporating charcoal making, heavy horse forestry, apple juice making, spinning and folk music to name but a few of the activities. A really dull day with alot of…

Knighton Park Family Fun day, Leicester 2014

Brilliant weather helped to make this event a real success. A lot of people came to this event which was good for the organisers but a bit of a challenge as a photographer! Because alot of the activities were in `pens` it was hard to isolate people engaged in events. The photographs definitely give the impression…

Bio Blitz Western Park, Leicester 2014

A mix of serious conservation talks and fun activities that helped young people learn about ecology. There was a challenge getting images in the…

RAF Cosford Airshow 2014

Went to the airshow at RAF Cosford today and managed to take some great photographs. It has been sometime since I’ve been to an airshow, but it’s one of my favorite areas of photography. I have a personal interest in aircraft and to photograph them is very rewarding. I think it takes great skill to photograph an…

The performance was followed by a  trapeze workshop for children. The challenges of this job were…

Kelly, Zak, Fynley, Daisy & Oliver

This is the most children I have photographed all at once and even though it was hard work at times it was a success and  I got some great photographs that Kelly really liked. I think perhaps with a big group of kids it would be better to have some playtime first in front of the lights…
