Wedding: Tom & Emily

Just two rather hectic days after moving, I had the pleasure of photographing Tom & Emily's special day at Stonehouse Court in Gloucestershire.

It was a beautiful day, the weather held out and the location was stunning. Emily looked beautiful in her wedding dress and Tom was a very relaxed groom.

The happy couple went to Cuba for their honeymoon and had a fantastic time!

Goodbye Leeds - Hello Devon!

As the title of this post suggests - I've finally moved!

We have moved to the small seafront town of Dawlish (famous for the railway line that runs along the seafront), just south of Exeter in South Devon.

It's a beautiful little town and we have a fab little cottage a 5 minute walk from the beach.

The only downfall is that I don't have an internet connection yet! Dawlish has VERY limited 3G signal on my network - the only place I can pick it up is on the beach (nice but not always practical)! So please bear with me - web updates, blog posts, flickr uploads, regular tweets etc etc will all be coming again very soon!

Strobism (Off Camera Flash)

I recently participated in a mini strobism workshop in preparation for a night time model shoot that I have been organizing with several other Leeds based photographers. One of the photographers, Gavin, had more experience with off camera flash by far that everyone else and kindly offered to give us all a mini workshop in the art of off camera flash.

It was great fun and I learnt quite a lot. Although I do use and have experience of studio lighting, strobism is quite a different skill with very different equipment.

Using several flash guns (up to 5 at a time) off camera with remote triggers and a willing (and slightly crazy volunteer) to model, here are a few of the test shots...

Model Shoot: Lauren

I managed to squeeze in a couple of shoots before moving away from Leeds, one of which was with the beautiful Lauren.

Lauren was in need of some up to date shots for her book since dying her hair red, and a fabulous red it was! Lauren not only models, but also sings in a girl band in London so she was an experienced model with plenty of confidence. It was a pleasure to shoot with her.

Model Shoot: Jodi

I managed to squeeze in a few model shoots before the big move, one of which was with the lovely Jodi.

Jodi has very little experience modeling and was looking to test the water to see if modeling was really something that she wanted to do. Jodi had recently been approached by New Look to participate in a television advert which kick started her interest in modeling.

Here's a few shots from her shoot...
