I will always try and enter the monthly competitions in the societys’ I am a member of, not only for the recognition but to stretch and grow your style and technique. It is good to see your own images alongside others and see how they compare. I have been incredibly lucky recently and last month I achieved 2 Highly Commendeds, one for a sports image and one for monochrome. I have posted them below for you to enjoy.

I love exhibiting at wedding shows and fairs as I get to meet lots of lovely couples planning their special day! This weekend I shall be at Dunston Hall for the EDP Wedding Show. You must come along and see all the wonderful suppliers ready to help you plan your day. I will have special offers on just for you and only on the day, so it’s well worth a visit. I look forward to seeing you there xx
Last weekend saw my latest Studio Experience Session. Our great model was Nate this time and it went splendidly well! Six photographers took to the floor to try out photographing a model. These are not teaching sessions but help and advice is always on hand to make sure you are set up correctly. It is great to get together with other photographers of differing skill levels and have a go at studio work. You’re not left to your own devices and it’s a great way to try it out. The cost is between £20-25 per person depending on the model which includes use of the studio, equipment and refreshments. The sessions normally last between 2-3 hours and take place at my studio in Wymondham. Here’s a few images from the last weekend.
If you would like to book a space on the next session or perhaps a block booking from a group or club, please get in touch.
I have once again been awarded a Highly Commended for one of my images in the March SWPP Competition. This is a global competition and there are hundreds of entries, so to receive this award is absolutely fantastic. I am extremely proud and all the winners go forward to the grand finale in January next year at the SWPP Gala Dinner and Awards Presentation which is also a great event to attend. Here’s the image for you all to enjoy.
A great Lighting Workshop this morning – one light, endless possibilities. It doesn’t necessarily mean it has to be electric light!! We also tried natural light with reflectors. Many thanks to all who came and I hope you went away with something new to try or some little tip that will enhance your photography. Thank you to Allyson England, Carla Hodgson, Chris Kot and Robin Orrow. If you are looking to try studio work or just need a starter for 10 with lighting, get in touch to book your workshop.
I shall be holding my first lighting workshop on Saturday 4th April 10.00 – 1.30pm. Starting with the basics you will learn how to use one light to the maximum and get to practice your skills with a professional model. You’ll have some great images to take away. If you would like to book your space, hurry!! Spaces are limited now but if you get in quick……!!
