You need photos in your life and on your walls

And I need to replace the bill money which I just spent on a new Tamron 24-70mm lens…. Nah, just joking, I would NEVER spend the bill money on stuff other than bills. Well, maybe a little bit here and there, for something that I really really really really NEEDED… Like a new lens. Let’s face it, that falls under the category of ‘bills’. Bills are things that are needed for survival, shelter, food, electricity, water, photography… Perhaps… Anyway, I thought I would take this opportunity to do a bit of self promotion and point you to where you can ...

Portrait shoot: Nat

A little while back I started shooting some portraits in my front room with some lights that were generously given to me by a mate. I just wanted to have a play, expand my photographic photographing a bit and see what I could do. I got hooked on the lights! But then my daughter decided her room was too small and wanted to swap… Being the good mother I am, I gave up my room. Unfortunatly her old room was way too small and awful and annoying. Got a few decent shoots out of it, but it was too frustrating! Fast forward ...

Portrait shoot: Fox

I keep meeting all these cute little dogs that make me want one of my own! A week or so back we went for a wander up at Knocklofty with Fox and his human David. Such a rad little puppy. Fast as a ferret and a mind of his own. So much personality crammed into one tiny little fluffy package. For info on ‘out and about’ portrait shoots check the photography page.

Portrait shoot: Zoe and Bec

I’m a bit slack in updating the latest portrait shoot. I am a terrible blogger at the best of times, so that’s my excuse. I need a minature dachshaund… If I was to get a dog, I think it would totally be one of these. Zoe is one of the best little dogs I have met! So little and cute and such a gorgeous personality. Such a mummy’s girl, would hardly leave Bec’s side, and when she did you could tell she had her eyes on her and knew exactly where everyone was at all times. We went and had ...

Portrait shoot: Evan and Paddy

Oh man, I had such a blast this morning. Kids are pretty damn fun to photograph I’ve decided. Paddy and Evan bought around some of their favourite things and we proceeded to stuff about and get some photos in between. I’m very jealous of Evan’s lightsaber. It glows blue and red and makes awesome sounds as well. Unfortunatley he remembered to take it home with it. Bugger. I guess I will just have to get my own… We had a wonderful reading of Dr Seuss by Paddy while Evan ran around being 5 and crazy. Paddy had a great knack ...

Portrait shoot: Gerry and Sarah

Technically it was two shoots, one at the club last week, and one here in my cosy little home studio. Cosy is code for teeny tiny and a little bit squishy, although it works well. No room for judo throws or take downs, that’s what the shoot at the club was for. I’m enjoying playing studio portraits. Very different from the usual things I have photographed to date, but it’s fun. I do need to work on my direction skills though. “Just shift a bit to the left”… “no not you.. you move back”… “no don’t both of you move”… “Sarah move ...
