It’s been so crazy recently that I’ve only just realised I hadn’t posted on the Blog for a while, so it’s time for a quick catch-up ……..
The other week I was asked if I’d like to help out on a charity photoshoot for a calendar – must admit the details were vague …. “top secret, somewhere in Somerset”, but it sounded intriguing and after a few days sat the PC it was a welcome break! It turned out to be a charity calendar shoot at one of Duncan Bannatyne’s hotels – Charlton House, organised by the ever smiling Gina. Let’s just say it was great fun, and if you want to check out Gina’s Blog, go to this link and while you’re at it, please consider donating for two very worthy causes – The Blue Lamp Foundation, and Help for Heroes.
Top secret must be a bit of a theme at the moment, because I’m currently working on something with a very special location but I can’t tell you anything just yet ….. you’ll have to wait a bit longer!
There’s a lot going on in the background at the moment, which means there’s not been a lot of photography over the past couple of weeks, but I did take some shots at Compton Acres recently for the website of my good friend Diana Saxby – Diana’s a Civil Celebrant, which for those who haven’t heard the term before means that she can conduct wedding ceremonies anywhere you want! Check out her website and give her a call …….
The very talented Olivier Depaep of 7876 Films was filming, and I shot some stills – typical weather for a wedding .. it was cold and grey!
To round things off, last week saw an engagement shoot with Michael and Clare, whose wedding I’m shooting in a few months in Bournemouth. When Clare asked if we could shoot on the beach (in March) I had my reservations, but we had a great time and I’ll be posting a few photographs in due course.
Yesterday’s sunny weather was perfect for a family portrait shoot in Hampshire, so now it’s back to the PC!
