Happy Saint David’s Day! Thought I’d celebrate by sharing a couple of photos from a recent portrait session with Rachael.

We were lucky enough to have Rachael’s friend Cilesté with us. She is a professional hair stylist and, with Rachael’s make-up artistry, the photos looked amazing right out of the camera.

I am so very pleased to be able to announce that this week I have been awarded Runner-up BIPP SE Region Provisional Photographer of the Year 2015.

The standards required by the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) are really high, so to receive any award is such an honour.

This year all winning entries are being exhibited at the Camera Cafe Gallery in London until Tuesday 17th November. It is such a privilege to see one’s work on display amongst images by some of the best photographers in the country.

If you are in the area then please do pop in and take a look, you won’t be disappointed. If you can’t make it then the images can also be seen on the BIPP web site here.

Take care

Amy – Family Photography

Had a family outing to Mottisfont recently and took the opportunity to photograph my daughter, Amy.

Funny how she is fine having her photograph taken with anyone but her dad! But that is quite common, and why it’s always a good idea to get a professional to photograph your children.

Fortunately I had bribery on my side and I wasn’t asking her to pose, I wanted more natural photos so I let her do what she wanted to do with just a couple of hints and suggestions.

I love the results and, even more importantly, so does she. 🙂

Opal – Basingstoke Portrait Photography

Opal is an aspiring model from Basingstoke. With few images in her portfolio, and being very new to standing in front of a lens, we decided to start with a simple portrait shoot in the park.

The memorial park in Basingstoke has quite a variety of locations to use. It would be a shame not to take advantage of everything it has to offer, but time limited us to just a small area. Which gives us lots of other options if we should do another session in the future.

It seems I am having a bit of a gothic period. Thought I’d share this photo from a portrait shoot I did with the lovely Jade this week.

The outfit she wore actually had something of a burlesque look, or barmaid maybe, and it fit in really well with the bars of Old Portsmouth.

This shot features bars of another sort. A lady of the night perhaps? 😉
