Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We hope you’ve had a wonderful year and enjoy the festive period. Richard and I have had a lovely year and have enjoyed a mix of travelling, spending time with family and friends and getting married (we were already legally married but on our 11th anniversary we converted…

Summer into Autumn

The summer was packed with days out, new experiences and the odd bit of decorating. Richard and I took a trip on the Tornado steam train from Walton on the Naze to Colchester in August.  The Tornado is a new steam train which has been built by hand based on a traditional steam locomotive.  It was…

It had to happen…

Things have been a bit quiet on the blog as I have been rather busier than normal.  Coupled with the glorious weather, I haven’t really wanted to stay indoors on the laptop. I also have a paper to write for my photography course and that is taking some of my free time. I must confess there is…

A different view of London 

It was lovely to meet up with Jeff this weekend whilst he visited London from Brooklyn. We got to enjoy some alternate sites in London thanks to the vibrancy of Brick Lane, Shoreditch, the East End and the City. See you in November Jeff (or is it September 😀 )

Another assignment completed

I completed another Photography assignment this week. With thanks to Enda, I have more experience of headshot studio photography. I also had to capture an environmental photograph which depicts him in his workplace, this was more challenging than I expected (especially as he has a non-traditional role).  The photos came out well though as I got…

My next assignment for my photography course covers corporate headshots and environmental photography. I was lucky enough to secure some willing models from work to help me practice. The theory for this seems straightforward but adding the complexity of light, flash, modifiers and posed subjects is quite a bit to take in. Thankfully my models…

Turning Friends into Rock Stars

Here is an update on the request I had a while back to find a model for my latest photography assignment. A couple friends stepped up and offered to help and I managed to find an hour with Sarah last week to shoot some photographs. I chose to shoot in London as I am fortunate enough…

A Relaxing Day

A relaxing (albeit autumnal) day at Woburn Abbey with friends. It gave me an excuse to test drive my Leica.  I am not sure what I am doing yet but these are my favourite photos from today.

Feeling Stronger

It’s been a lovely sunny weekend and it has started to feel like spring is finally here. Amongst the chores etc I planned to head out for a run and I did that this morning.  I took the same approach as Friday and simply saw what I could do without pushing to hard. Once again…

15 wonderful years

15 years ago you came into my life and it’s never been the same since. I love you more than words can express.  Happy anniversary baby xxxxx
