Here I'll be posting what I've been up to: from news to clients shoots to new deals, you'll catch them all at my blog!
All the best,
Psst... Considering booking? Give me a call, I'd love to help you out!
Well, this was an interesting shoot.
A couple of weeks ago I had an enquiry for a head shot shoot.
Fairly simple, you would think.
I then proceeded to have a chat with a lovely chap on the phone, from Australia, 81 years of age, who called himself "Crocodile Bob" - we booked the shoot!
Trouble was, Crocodile Bob didn't have a mobile, or email.
How did he get in contact with me then?
I'm glad you asked; Bob went through the lovely Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury and they recommended me to take his head shots!
I felt privileged.
The tough part was getting him his invoice, and finding him for the shoot.
I then found him in a pub over an hour early after receiving a phone call from a local newsagents who figured it was me that he was looking for. We ended up having a pint in the local pub and then we did the shoot.
Considering all of that, Bob did spiffingly. Check out the shots!
So no matter how old you are, or what communications issues you may have, I can cater for them. Here's the evidence.
I put out a message last week inviting you to ask any question to do with photography and here was one of the questions:
"How do you go about choosing a location for a family shoot?"
If you're lucky enough to have been brought up in a family that did stuff together; going out together and doing fun things, you'll probably have a handful of places that have some sort of meaning to them.
For me and my family, the beach and the glen up in Walmer are places we love to go and walk our dog at. But for you, it may be a specific part of the beach, your very own garden, or a street you always tend to walk through together.
So when I have a booking with a family, I ask them the question:
"Is there a place of significance or meaning that you and your family like to go?"
If your not a deep and meaningful family you're not necessarily boring, but you may not have a particular place you like to go to with your family. That's not a problem!
Here, I then have a list of places that look LOVELY and are fun to go to.
We then choose a place that suits each family.
If you have a question you'd love to ask, send me a message or comment on this post.
Yes, you read it right!
"But you already DO blog posts?"
Correct, but I haven't done many blog posts about teaching on photography.
I am currently teaching a few students photography on their Duke of Edinburgh "skill", and thought I would begin posting a few tips.
Do YOU have any questions about photography? Running a business? Or LIFE?
Comment below, I'd love to hear from you.
Who's ready for an honesty bomb? Alice was insanely hard to cater for - she's my sister, and pickier than 99% of the clients I've worked with.
I love her to bits though, and it's her vision of excellence which sets her above the average performer. She pushed me, I pushed her, and we achieved some of the best head shots I've shot to this day.
I'm not being funny though, you could be in these shots if you booked with me. You might not be blonde and look like Alice, but I'm sure you'll still look beautiful.
I'm not just announcing a popular thing to put in a burger, but the name of this beautiful family's dog! Too cute.
Check the Wright family out.
Remember; family photo sessions are £60!
You MUST remember Alex Rose?
He's just released an album on iTunes called "Happier Songs": go check it out!
Here's some shots we did recently to keep his portfolio fresh.
Guess who took advantage of the family vouchers?
The Patterson Family!
Sheelagh & Hayden bought a family photo shoot voucher for their son and his family. What a lovely idea!

You would be correct if you recognised him.
This top lad booked a session with me a couple of years ago and is always wanting to stay on top of his game as an actor, dancer, performer.
He knows that it is crucial to maintain a current image, without it looking dated.
Without sounding too much like my Dad, aren't these shots cool though?
You wouldn't think this set of photographs was shot in the middle of October!
But it sure was! Lovely family: super friendly, and they have bought a load of products to create an inventive collage on a feature wall in their house.
It's pretty rare that friends and their families book shoots with me, but when they do it's really fun! Here's some beautiful photos of the Scanlons. The have chosen some stunning products to mount on their walls - I can't wait to deliver them!
Credit card company "Handepay" recently booked me to shoot some photos of one of their customers using their card machine.
For the record, The Lane is great. Go check them out.
Have a friend with kids?
I'm sure they would LOVE to see some beautiful photos of their kids, and have their picture on a wall in their house!
Why not get in touch?
Head shots of Mark Fidock - a gentleman who knew the kind of look he was after for his business, and LinkedIn. We sure achieved it!
This shoot was so beautiful. And as I post this, I miss the summer!
Hazell & Patrick are soon to be married and wanted to get some post engagement photos. So, we shot at their house and a nearby park which they love to hang out at.
Soon, there will be no more green, and just twigs.
That makes me sad.
But the photos we got were stunning, and the products they chose were choice!
