I found these hiding on my computer the other day. Wedding Flowers magazine asked me for some advice on shooting bouquets. Did I really say ‘funky chair’???
For me Travel Photography is all about seeing the soul in a place. I don’t get out too much and with most of my wedding photography in Essex its nice to get jobs further afield or just take a break and head out in the car camera in tow.
I spent a couple of days in Wales with the family in mid July. I remember going to some beautiful places over there when I was a child, and on this trip the scenery and quality of light in Pembrokeshire was breathtaking. We were lucky to have nice weather and driving around the sunken lanes was as relaxing as lying around on the beach or strolling through a meadow.
We stayed in a small village called Treffynnon which was really only a collection of about ten houses scattered around the interconnection of several lanes. Reading the gravestones in the tiny village church gave you a real history of the place and the people that live there.
I’m fairly well travelled but when you visit places like this there is no question that we have some of the most beautiful places on earth scattered around this little island.
I enjoyed doing the 365 blog but there was a little too much pressure for my liking! The blog from now on will be just bit and bobs. Nuts and bolts. Cheese and crackers. Stuff i’m working on. Things I like.
I’ve finally set up a Facebook page and have been going through old work to populate the page and drum up some business. I came across this image from a wedding I shot a couple of years back. A rarely take a break at a wedding and can often be found wandering through bushes or exploring the venue while everyone is sat down to eat. This one just has a special feeling about it. Subdued light and colour give a peculiar ambiance. I imagine Snow White following a similar path before stumbling across the dwarves cottage……..
