SRZ productions photoshoot

I am able to post now about a photoshoot that I did two weeks ago on behalf of SRZ Productions … as the images were commercially sensitive, I had to wait for approval to go ahead and blog …

We met up at a warehouse which had very little natural light, apart from a couple of plastic corregated panels in the ceiling, which let in the most amazing light …

We were so lucky and had to chase the light in order to get the best images that we could (the warehouse had no electricity …)

We also got to go to some of the estates and got some cracking shots, using Nikon CLS system …

I really enjoyed the time that I spent shooting these guys and their enthusiasm is really infectious! 

I hope to be able to work with them again as they had some great clothes and really creative ideas for their images.  I wish you all the luck in the future!

The Grass Roots Theatre Company, Faversham “The Boyfriend”

Last Monday, I had the great opportunity to photograph a dress rehearsal for “The Boyfriend” by the Grass Roots Theatre Company.  Four of us from the Faversham and District Camera Club were able to practice our low light photography and to enjoy the performance as well.  It was all very lighthearted, but some of the talent and the singing made the hairs stand up on my arms!

Thanks for allowing us the opportunity to come along and I hope that we will be invited again! All of these pictures were taken with a Nikon D300 with a 50mm f1.8 lens – great for low-light photography!

Pet Portrait Photography … something a little different

On Saturday, I got the opportunity to shoot my neighbours dogs … this may sound slightly worse than it really was …

Murphy and Charlie were absolutely great fun – and their owners were prepared with treats to keep them both in check.

Murphy is a delight to photograph:

Charlie was a little more skittish: but just as cute …

Last night I downloaded the images across for their owners who are going to use them in their Christmas newsletter – such a compliment and praise indeed!

Thanks again Steve and Rosie for letting us visit and photograph your lovely dogs and also for having some great set-up ideas. 

Now I just have to get the dog hairs out of my background before the next shoot …!

Food … glorious food!

I spent an exceptionally pleasant afternoon photographing food at The Faversham Bistrot. Chef Olivier Pairon has commissioned me to take photographs of his wonderful recipes, to be published …

Here is a little “taster”:

I was also lucky enough to take a selection of the menu home with me and we thoroughly enjoyed tasting the food!

First commission … and collaboration with Faversham Bistrot

This is Olivier Pairon, chef and owner of the Faversham Bistrot in … Faversham.

Olivier and I will be working together on a project to photograph his wonderful recipes … luckily, he will be doing the cooking and I will be doing the photography (and the eating …)!

Photos to follow!
