This is my personal favourite photo from a recent shoot for Debbie Leno, a local hair and makeup artist. Our model for the day, despite never having modelled before, was Amy. I think she did a wonderful job and we had a lot of fun working on different looks.
Family outing to the Natural History Museum of Wales in St Fagans. Not been there for a few years so it was really good to go back and look around again. Only problem is that it’s pretty much impossible to see everything in one day so we’re going to have to go back again soon! If you are ever near Cardiff then I highly recommend you pay a visit.
I think it is fairly safe to say that Darryl was quite comfortable in front of the camera, and whilst Coral was a little more nervous to begin with it didn’t take her long to get in to the swing of things and have some fun.
Having worked with Miriam King on a recent portrait shoot she asked me if I would like to work with her again on some more portraits to showcase her hair and makeup. Of course I had to say yes, and now I can share a few examples of her work. Our lovely model for the day was Jess.
After my recent trip to India I wasn’t expecting to be doing any more travelling for a while, but then the chance to go to Costa Rica came up. Having never been there either, I just had to say yes!
And so it was that I found myself almost exactly the opposite side of the Earth to Bangalore, in San Jose.
Temperatures were much more comfortable at around 25C during the day. One thing that surprised me was that it wasn’t all pure blue skies the whole time. In fact much of the time it looked more like the photo above.
But not all the time as this photo across the rooftops shows.
I was invited to the Hawk Conservancy Trust in Andover this week, to celebrate the 25th wedding anniversary of our friends Emma and John.
Though I was not there to photograph the renewal of their vows, I thought I would take along my camera anyway. Though I don’t have the long lenses a nature photographer would have I figured I could still capture some interesting shots of the birds in flight.

So here are just a couple of the shots I managed to capture.
