From the other end of the lens…..

Directing a photoshoot from the other side of the camera is not easy. I had some help from my lovely dad, who is great with a camera but has no experience of studio work…and was in some of he pics with us. We used his D800E, and had fun, and I actually got a “40th” pic that I actually quite like, and some lovely family shots……enjoybeale-2193

A large family photoshoot

A really fun photoshoot with a lovely family, and look, I can get 11 in the studio….oh, and that baby on the banner of my blog….she’s the little one in theses pics, doesn’t time fly…..












Studio Photoshoot with Lois and friends

Lois requested her photoshoot as a Christmas present, and she brought a few friends with her……we had great fun, especially trying to get Snoopy the dog to sit still, as he’s a very lively dog. She also had some pictures with her brother and cousins.









Dog Days!

Dogs – well pets – are one of my favourite photographic subjects.  I’m not entirely sure why, maybe it’s becasue they can’t answer back, or maybe it’s the challenges they can present!  Here are a few of my favourite doggy pics taken over the last year…..










Photoshoot Birthday Party

I was really pleased to get permission from all the parents to be able to share this fun birthday party photoshoot. Ten little 8 year olds in the studio, what a riot! They all seemed to have a lot of fun, and according to her mum, the birthday girl said that it was “the best party ever”!











Drum Kit!

My son has been learning drum kit, and a lot of time spent diligently on ebay resulted in a reasonable quality kit for his birthday. The night before his birthday I got lucky as he was on a night hike with Scouts, and we set it all up in the photography studio while he was out. So, before they were moved into his bedroom, I dropped the black background and subjected him to a photoshoot. I think he got me back by drumming as loud as possible!
