I woke up early on Sunday for a 'risk assessment' visit to The Living Rainforest for a science school trip I am planning to take some of my pupils on. It was also a chance for me to get some photos of some exotic animals and plants.
About an hour from Ealing is Oxford - famed for its impressive university buildings. The area has a notably different vibe to that of your typical university town and understandably so, its home to some of the world's most intelligent minds.
Being that it now the summer holidays, all of my social media pages are awash with wedding photos. Its nice to look at these and analyse each photographer's different styles and 'magpie' (teacher slang for 'steal') ideas from more experienced photographers who specialise in weddings.
Wedding season is well under way and with my first 'Official' wedding photography opportunity fast approaching, I have taken the time to revisit some old photos of my Sister's wedding.
Dear Sir or Madame would you read my book, it took me years to write, would you take a look...
You're never too old for a farm visit. A trip to Bocketts Farm in Dorking, Surrey allowed me to capture some photos of lambing season. Taking photos of animals can be tricky as they rarely sit still and often interfere with the 'perfect shot' that I have spotted through the viewfinder. However, I love trying to capture the animals' personalities in the photographs.
With a trip to Switzerland in the Easter holidays I am hoping to capture some really wide landscape shots of the Swiss Alps and valleys. The lens has a 180° angle so it can capture a vast landscape.
I love the use of reflection in photography and it also gave me a chance to look back through my photos from the last few years and reflect on how lucky I have been to visit some amazing places.
Everyone loves Autumn. A quick glimpse at Instagram is proof of this. There is only a couple of weeks to capture Autumn in all its glory before the heavy frosts and strong winds strip the trees of their colourful leaves...
A follow up to last month's post; 'Oh Deer!' This time shot in Bushy Park at about 4pm. There was a really nice warm light on the park and a moody dark sky...
